Photogrammetry + clean Topo surface / tin + plainmetrics
Elevated Aerial's full linework is professionally drafted, survey-grade CAD files, created from your drone data. Our photogrammetrists turn photos into survey-grade 3D models, and then our drafting technicians and engineers will manually extract all of the points, polylines, contours, and surface data that is relevant to your project.
Full linework includes all planimetric features that are visible from the air, plus clean topographic data with spot elevation points, breaklines, 1’ contours, and a TIN surface. Aerotas will mark all visible features such as paint striping, utility access panels, edge of pavement, building driplines, and more. These files are delivered as a single DWG package containing all of the above-mentioned deliverables. Full Linework also includes everything that is present in our Topo and Photogrammetry products.
Available Add-Ons: Building Footprints | Roof Features | Pipe Cluster Driplines | Individual Tree Driplines | Light Fixtures | Power Pole Tops | Power Line Attachment Points | Transformers | Stockpile Volumes | Surface Comparison | Rock Outcroppings | Road Cross-Sections | Custom
Photogrammetry + Clean Topo Surface / TIN
Clean Topo Surface / TIN
Clean Topo Surface / TIN is a drafted linework product focused exclusively on clean topographic data from your drone. Our photogrammetrists turn your drone photos into survey-grade 3D models, and then our drafting technicians and engineers will manually extract all of the points, polylines, contours, and surface data that is relevant to your project.
Topo Surface includes clean topographic data in CAD format, including spot elevation points, breaklines, 1’ contours, a TIN surface, and more. Because they are manually drafted, the contour lines are cleaned so that miscellaneous objects, such as cars, equipment, buildings, or vegetation, are not included. Topo Surface does not include as many features as Full Linework, but does include all of the deliverables present in our photogrammetry products.
Available Add-Ons: Stockpile Volumes | Surface Comparison | Rock Outcroppings | Road Cross-Sections | Custom
Photogrammetry only is for when all you need is accurate imagery to back your existing projects and drawing, or when you want to draft on the imagery yourself. It does not include a surface and clean topo. It does not include any professionally drafted features.
ALTA/NSPS Standards is a drafted linework product focused exclusively on the requirements for ALTA/NSPS Land Title Surveys. ALTA/NSPS Standards drafting includes Full Linework with the addition that Walls and Curbs are marked with double lines and excludes breaklines, topo points, and surface. Surface data can be added with ALTA drafting by selecting ‘Topo Surface & Contours’ from the list of Add-Ons when requesting a quote. All features are flattened to zero elevation. If surface data is asked for, all features are flattened to zero elevation even for features that were used in the creation of the TIN surface, with the exception of the topo points, TIN surface, and breaklines.
Note: The ALTA/NSPS Standards product is NOT a completed ALTA survey, and it does NOT meet the minimum standard detail requirements for an ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey. Aerotas will not be able to extract details that include the type of manhole, type of meter, type of riser, type of valve, type of vault, type of fence, type of pipe, type of utility line, and anything else that cannot be determined from drone imagery. But, this product does provide all of the information that can be collected by a drone in compliance with the ALTA/NSPS Standards. The goal of this product is to get you as close as possible to an ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey with the data a drone can collect so that the additional effort is not as substantial.
