2D and 3D mapping modelling are similar and complex processes which involve taking hundreds – if not more – of aerial photographs and video and processing them in one of several photogrammetry software suites we subscribe to. Although more and more companies are starting to offer mapping and modelling as a service, RMC have the experience and a dedicated team of fully trained and aerial mapping and modelling professionals, backed up by enterprise level software, to create unbelievably detailed maps and models.
2D Mapping involves taking a large number of aerial photographs and ‘stitching’ them together to create one single image, with an astonishing level of detail. We have a number of ongoing contracts in place with UK industry giants who use our maps for site progress reporting, future planning, security planning, environmental monitoring and more. Our maps are so detailed that minute details such as tyre-tacks and handheld tools are easily visible.
A 2D map is a perfect way to track the progress of a construction or work site over a medium or long term project.
3D Mapping & Modelling
3D mapping and modelling takes the principles of a 2D map a giant step further. Using drone photography, enterprise level photogrammetry software and our industry experience, RMC can create full, accurate, textured 3D maps and models which can be exported into any CAD software package. In the past, this procedure has only been possible through hours of on-site work, laser and LIDAR scanning. We are now able to create sub-centimeter CAD models in a fraction of the cost and time, and completely eliminating the chance of human error.
Our maps and models are used by architects, construction planners and environment agencies for site planning and complex simulations. Recently, an agency commissioned RMC to create a 3D map of a series of fields which were prone to flooding. Using our map and RealFlow software, they were able to simulate a heavy rainfall and determine what caused the flooding – all without sending a single person to site.
