This week, EnerTek Global invested in one of the most advanced photogrammetry drones available (drone that takes pictures which can be converted to topography data). This Equipment enables EnerTek to collect up to 1,000ha of topography data per day with sub-meter accuracy. The data collection is a small part of the process, afterwards, we must open all the pictures at once (>100,000) and find common points between each image, usually, 100,000 common points are sufficient to stitch to pictures together. SOUNDS TEDIOUS? Well, it is, however, we have invested in the latest computational technology, a 16 core 4.5Gh beast that can do it all for us in a matter of minutes.
Sorry, Mr Einstein but these calculations would have taken you 100,000 lifetimes to compleat!
