Mapping an Operating Gas Plant for Facility Localization

Before the use of UAVs, the only way to get an orthomosaic underlay for a project like this was to purchase aerial orthophotos or processed satellite imagery, which tend to be out-of-date and of much lower resolution.

“Such results were too pixelated to be of much value,” said Kurtis Poettcker of Abacus Datagraphics. “Having a high-resolution image really enhances the usefulness of the underground map, allowing operators to really visualize the location of buried facilities.”
