For engineers and project managers in the construction industry, keeping tabs on progress of any job site can be time-consuming and detail-heavy. Our Progress Report data package delivers planimetrically precise overhead maps of any job site, no matter how small or large, to give management professionals a bird’s-eye view of progress on road construction, earthworks, excavations, foundation work, and buildout, as frequently as every day. This can help focus attention on certain components of the project, cutting time required for on-site inspections, and increasing operational efficiency. Using a GIS, the build-out can be directly compared to architectural plans through overlay, providing the manager flexibility to deal with problems, or to propose modifications to the plan.
Additional data, such as a 3D model, can be used to estimate the volume of material piles, such as lumber, steel, or gravel, and the size of excavations. See below for examples of progress on a road closure caused by landslides.
