Who we are
Founded in 2018, AccuMap Models is focused on providing companies with 3D modeling services throughout Florida. This includes point cloud models, sometimes referred to as a “digital twin,” whereby data is acquired using drones in a process called remote sensing. Those images, along with GPS data from base stations, are combined using special software to create a 3D point cloud with 2-5 cm accuracy. The point cloud can be rendered into a photo-realistic 3D model called a Photogrammetry 3D mesh. Point cloud models can be used to derive measurements for reports, avoid potential errors, track progress and performance, keep inventory of materials and equipment, MOT planning, better estimating of stockpile and debris, pavement marking inspections, or for insurance proof and verification pre/post storms. Due to the efficiency and relative low cost of this process, it can be repeated biweekly or monthly. This service improves efficiency and safety, while reducing costs, helping contractors complete projects on time, and within budget.
We also provide 360 Matterport virtual tours and short videos for real estate listings, hotel virtual spaces, construction sites, commercial locations, or any type of property. These tours provide Realtors with a virtual Open House to show their listings 24/7. A 360 virtual walk-through is also a great way to show a hotel or Airbnb property. Matterport virtual spaces are measurable to within 1% of accuracy. Our goal is to provide you with the tools to work smarter and be more effective.
Point clouds can typically be created within 4-5 days after data acquisition. We can capture hundreds of images of a corridor or construction area within an hours. Depending on accuracy requirements, size, and topography, most scanning projects can be completed quickly, greatly reducing onsite liability. Post-processing is performed off-site.
Because of its time efficiency and minimal crew requirements to perform missions, UAV drone modeling is very cost effective. Most jobs require only one or two operators. Whether it’s a corridor, a shopping mall, a community area, or a high rise building, this translates into less manhours, and faster turn-around time, which means cost savings for our clients.
Safety is our primary goal for every job. From our team’s safety to our client’s and their equipment, safety concern is in every step of the mission planning and executing process. Our UAVs allow us to maintain a flexible operating distance therefore, being able to position ourselves away from harm’s way, be it further from moving traffic, machinery or dangers on the job site. For some projects, we won’t need to access the job site. Our pilots are FAA certified and our drones are all FAA registered.
Our GNSS ground station and Loki UAV mounted rover offers increased accuracy beyond the drone’s internal GPS unit – which are generally designed for flight positioning vs accurate photography. For jobs requiring higher than standard accuracy, we use a PPK process which increases the XYZ accuracy of the coordinates in every photo. This translates into models with better accuracy to obtain reliable measurements of distance, area, and volume in any location of the model.
Whether it’s a construction site, our VR and Matterport tours allow visitors and stakeholders to explore the property from their computer at any time. With various 360-degree photos taken at key intervals throughout the space, a visitor can make their way through, seeing the location from every angle. For construction sites, this is the perfect complement to a 3D model, allowing you to walk through the site, inspecting for possible issues that can be avoided, giving you remote job-site intelligence. They can also be retained throughout the construction process as historical time-lapse progress. For Realtors, this is an excellent way to showcase your listings. This saves you and your buyer time, and increases marketing efficiency. We also provide video tours which can be used in social media marketing or as teasers to attract buyers to the 360 virtual tour. Realtors can also request a 3D model of the exterior of the property, to increase interest and online visibility.
