The Propeller Platform:

3D drone-mapping software that simplifies earthworks progress tracking

Propeller software

Propeller Aero offers a comprehensive drone data workflow combining innovative Propeller AeroPoints, 3D mapping software, and processing services to simplify the analysis of survey-grade data. Propeller customers benefit from tools that enhance collaboration and data access across their organizations, as well as 24/7 support. Focused specifically on construction, waste management, mining, and aggregates, the Propeller drone solution enables clients to map and measure their site with intuitive tools that everyone can use from any device, anywhere, anytime.

Ensure accurate and reliable survey-grade data, every time, without adding hardware or special skills

Survey data is a critical component of earthworks projects. Inaccurate data is not only costly in terms of materials and labor, it could extend the timeline for the project. Propeller Aero ensures accurate data collection and processing to reduce these challenges.

Customers experience a seamless workflow by simply uploading their drone survey data to the Propeller Platform for processing and 3D map creation. Within 24 hours, this data is processed and returned with a guaranteed accuracy of within 3 cm (1.2 in).

Propeller provides comprehensive processing reports for every survey. This vetted data then lives on the platform to be analyzed and accessed by stakeholders working with mobile devices or laptops, in the field or the office.

Armed with a single source of truth for all earthwork progress data, both in-field and in-office teams know exactly how fast they’re progressing toward design, what’s left to do, and how the work they’re doing impacts the big picture.

Breaking down silos for optimal collaboration

Effective collaboration and project efficiency depend on access to accurate, up-to-date information. The Propeller Platform enables this by allowing unlimited users within a company to access data sets. This means that everyone can work from the same digital twin of a worksite, which eliminates confusion, reduces the potential for errors, and thus saves time and money.

Site managers can manage access levels to give clients and subcontractors a high-level, view-only experience at the same time that teams access more granular levels of information and analyze maps. Plus, stockpile inventory, measurement and take-off reports are available in a couple of clicks.

The Propeller Platform add-on, Crew, is an example of how this process has become even easier. A bridge between the field and office, Crew allows customers to view interactive 2D maps when out in the field. This information is accurate and ready to markup in real time. 

Support like a member of your own team

Propeller customers receive dedicated, unlimited support for data processing and training. With more than 100 employees in Australia, the USA, Netherlands, and the Philippines, Propeller support engineers are available as an extension of the customer’s team.

Propeller works with the formats that are vital to your existing workflows. Import your data in geoTIFF, DXF, DWG, KML, LandXML, LAZ, and KMZ or export as JPEG, TIFF, DXF, or LAZ.
