Why Wingtra

Save time

Saving time in surveying

Up to 80% faster surveying operations

Drones speed up the labor-intensive collection of geospatial data in the field. With its autonomy and long range capability, the WingtraOne mapping drone goes further by increasing mapping efficiency up to 80% compared to various mapping methods, including many other drones.

Minimizing time in the field

In one flight, WingtraOne can map almost 2x more than a conventional fixed-wing drone and approximately 10 to 14x more than multicopter drones.

This is mainly due to its 42MP Sony camera. With this high resolution, the WingtraOne can fly higher than drones with 20MP cameras while ensuring the same or better GSD, thus covering a larger mapping area.

Save time compared to

Up to 30 times faster data capture

Traditional topographic surveying is a slow and labor-intensive process requiring the collection of GPS points. Depending on the area, several hundred points must be manually collected, which can take up to several days or longer.

With the WingtraOne drone, it is possible to capture thousands of data points in just a few hours.

Data capture time comparison between traditional survey and drone survey. Up to 30 times faster means that a one-hour data capture job in the field with a WingtraOne equals 30 hours in the field with traditional terrestrial methods.

  • Deliver data in a short turnaround time​
    Data delivery is up to five times faster and can take place more often for projects that are changing in nature
  • Amount of data is unmatched
    During a single survey, the amount of data captured is far superior. No need to go back into the field to get data that hasn’t been captured

10 to 14 times faster data capture

Multicopters are usually only effective for very small mapping projects, like buildings or small private grounds assessment. The limited flight range and battery life of multicopter drones make them unsuitable for bigger projects. Compare this to the WingtraOne, which can map between 5 and 14x more time during one flight.

2 times faster data capture

The biggest advantage of fixed-wing drones are the area they can coverage in one flight. WingtraOne goes a step further and can map up to 400 ha (1,000 ac) in one flight, which is 2x more than other fixed-wing drones.

How our customers saved time

In comparison to classical methods, GPS and total stations, we were probably 30 times faster in terms of capturing raw data and field work and approximately five times faster in delivering the final product.
We don’t think we’d be really happy to fly Phantom 4 if we had to collect data on 600 acres. Compare this to Wingtra, where that would be a one-day mission.
