Hi, new member here. Sorry in advance if some of my questions are too "noobish" I work for a mining company, limestone being our main thing, and a higher up recently got enamored with drone surveying, more specifically Trimble. After a few meetings with them, I attended being the obligatory IT guy, They seem like a legit big company, but not the most cost-friendly from my own research. Apparently the main selling points of theirs is their proprietary Image processing software/service Stratus & proprietary GCPs, Aeropoints. They claim to have images processed in under 6-8 hours by their own "professionals" and cloud service software. Our current SW takes about 24-48 hours. Of course it's a service so it'll be a monthly/yearly payment. They were also pushing their fixed wing drone UX11 & ground-based 3D laser scanners as well as their "total software package" that had CAD capabilities, point could tools, road design tools etc. Anyone here have experience working with them, and what were your experiences like? Were their higher prices worth it? Were they faster & images more accurate as they claim? I'm more curious about their software than their hardware. Thank You.
Hello, I have a couple of potential large clients within a couple of miles of me. One has a granite quarry, stone crushing, and asphault manufacuring. Another has a very large stone & gravel company, does land clearing and developing including some properties they purchase for themselves. The later is currently doing a 400 acre site clearing where the town has a, I believe, national company provide drone arerial photography to satisfy the town on the work near wet lands. Since my interest is in the commercial industrial, construction, inspection areas, including real estate to put money in my pocket while building the other desired insdustries, I am looking to partner or obtain the hardware and software to give me the opportunity to work such projects and industries. There have been a number of players that offer solutions like this in the last year. Since this is a startup venture, I want to approach companies like this but need the tools and support from the right vendor, especial when budgeting is rather tight to this startup and is crutial. Marketing material and support would obviously be very important to do some hand-holding with me while I get going. I work in the mid Massachusetts areas to Southern NH. My goal is to have the needed vendor I can work with prior to knocking on doors, especially if I don't have the right marketing material or hardware/software to see it thru and potential loose a client by wasting his time. Does anyone have any vendors they would suggest given the above?
