How It Works

Surveyors needed to be more productive with fewer people to stay competitive. If surveyors bid too many jobs with their limited crews they may have a hard time delivering. If they can find great help and hire for expansion, they could be carrying too much overhead. There are technological solutions out there, but surveying companies are busy and don’t always have the time to learn new technology. 

SmartDrone Professional LiDAR Scanning

Increased Productivity. Controlled Costs. We Do It For You.

Have too many jobs and can't find enough good people to work?

SmartDrone saw the problem and created not only a hardware and software solution for land surveying, but also developed a do-it-for-you (DIFY) professional service to perform a topographic scan and data collection using aerial LiDAR technology to support land surveyors, civil engineers, and earth workers.

As an exceptionally client service-oriented company, we listened to our customers for feedback, and built a more comprehensive, end-to-end solution that included not only the data collection, but also the software processing to meet the needs of our surveyor customers. The SmartProject services are competitive, fixed-bid pricing which helps to control costs without surprises. With SmartProject, land surveyors, civil engineers and earth workers experienced first hand the benefits of a laser-focused drone surveying solution and developed trust in a real world solution to improve their productivity and help control costs.

• For jobs over 50 acres.
• Competitive, fixed-bid pricing. No surprises.
• We do the complete job for you with the option for on-site education.
• Comparable to a fractional field service crew
• Comprehensive and extensive support, even after the job is done.
• Accuracy and satisfaction guaranteed.
