Dansk Drone Netværk (Danish Drone Network) is a networking company consisting of freelance drone operators performing all sorts of drone jobs such as TV and film, architectural footage, surveying and inspections.
As with most drone companies, Danish Drone Network is small, new and ambitious – and for inspection projects, the software of choice is Scopito.
“Scopito gives us a lot of advantages in inspection and repair jobs,” says Ulrik Max Nielsen, founder and CEO of Danish Drone Network.
”For us the main use of the software is for rooftop inspections. The brilliant thing here is that we can take thousands of tagged images of rooftops and have them all organized in one single cloud-based solution – and have Scopito analyse them. There’s an awful lot of money to be saved in the analysis work, because Scopito can make a shortlist of all the images that have been taken. Out of thousands of drone images, Scopito tags the ones where we can see anomalies that need further scrutiny. The end customer has access to all data, but in this way they get a quick overview of the actual state of the roof construction. Easy, and it saves a lot on expert hours.”
Ulrik Max Nielsen emphasizes two main functions of Scopito that make the software particularly useful: ”First, it’s easy to give others access to the system, so that we can share image data with external experts. Secondly, the images are geo-tagged with amazing precision.”
Danish Drone Network also creates visualizations of large projects for architects. “We can use our drones to take a series of images of a plot of land intended for development. Our animators can then use those same images to construct very precise virtual buildings, which the architects can then use in their tender materials. Scopito can use the GPS data to visualise the landscape, and it is very helpful for our designers to have access to precise data such as elevation, camera angles and GPS coordinates – that way, the visualisations become much more accurate and appealing.”
