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.
