Propeller AeroPoints - Ground Control Solution Specifically for Drone Surveying
  • Each AeroPoint is a portable, reusable ground control point that repeatedly records positioning data while your drone flies.
  • 45 minutes to Accuracy: AeroPoints’ in-built GPS only needs 45 minutes of activation, well within typical drone operation time
  • Lightweight and durable with simple one-touch operation
  • A standard set of 10
  • Maximum survey area per set: 70ha (180 acres)
  • AeroPoints can be placed around a survey area in minutes
  • Works with any GPS-enabled drone model, including those with onboard RTK
  • Works with the Propeller Aerial Data Platform as well as any other platform for visualizing drone data
  • Works with your grid: including nonstandard and local grid coordinate systems, using a Point Pair file that translates your grid into a coordinate reference system
  • Global accuracy of 2 cm when using the Propeller Corrections Network, a known point (even local grid) or RINEX Data 
How will AeroPoints work for your site?
  • Sites on a global Coordinate system: There's no more need for awkward and expensive survey gear.  Can show up on site, quickly disperse the AeroPoints and then fly.
  • Sites with a permanent survey mark: Calibrate your AeroPoints with a permanent survey mark, including State Marks, by placing an AeroPoint over it and uploading the mark's position with your data.
  • Sites with a base station: Ensure your drone data has the same reference point as your other data by importing a RINEX file with your AeroPoints.  Great for construction sites with machine control.
  • Sites with a local grid: Align drone data with machine control, design, and other site data by uploading your Trimble or Topcon calibration file to calibrate AeroPoints with your local grid coordinates.
Included with your purchase:
  • 10 AeroPoint units
  • 2 AeroPoints bags: AeroPoints come in durable, hi-vis bags, making them easy to store and carry.
  • 2 AeroStencils: AeroStencils make it simple to use AeroPoints to create semi-permanent and permanent GCPs.
  • AeroPoints processing: Every AeroPoints purchase includes 12 months of unlimited GCPs processing and corrections.
  • Propeller integration: AeroPoints integrate seamlessly with the Propeller Platform for faster, easier, more accurate surveys.
  • AeroPoints Platform: View your ground control data visually. Keep track of placement, survey dates, and past data.
