Storm Damage Restoration: Collecting, Preparing, and Visualizing UAV Data
Southern Company leverages UAS/UAVs to assess damage to assets after storms. With 40 pilots, and over one thousand flights to date, the program takes advantage of the safety, cost-effectiveness, and lower impact of unmanned flights to collect imagery and video for restoration decisions.
This presentation will demonstrate how Southern Company optimizes their UAV flight planning through 3D feeder data visualization. The talk will also cover the streamlined approach used to index and process high volumes of raw, drone-collected data.
Attendees will see how to plan for, prepare, and automate the migration of imagery and data from hundreds of drone flights onto maps to provide information for decision makers.
