Traditionally, land scouting in the construction sector involved a manual process of measuring and mapping the land using physical surveying equipment. The process involved a team of surveyors who would visit the site, take measurements using equipment such as theodolites and total stations, and create maps and plans based on the collected data.
This process was time-consuming, expensive, and often prone to errors. The accuracy of the data collected could be impacted by factors such as weather, terrain, and human error. Even slight variations in the measurements could lead to significant differences in the final project outcome.
Additionally, the data collected would often need to be manually entered into computer systems, which could further delay the project timeline. This manual data entry process could also introduce human errors and inconsistencies.
New Processes Powered by New-Age Technologies:
Today, land scouting in the construction sector has been transformed by new-age technologies such as drones, AI-powered surveying software, and GPS systems. These technologies have automated and streamlined the land scouting process, making it faster, more accurate, and more cost-effective.
For example, drones equipped with high-resolution cameras and sensors can capture detailed images and data of the land from different angles and heights. AI-powered surveying software can process this data and create 3D models and maps with a high degree of accuracy.
GPS systems can provide real-time location data and help navigate the terrain more efficiently, reducing the time and cost required for land scouting. This technology can also help identify potential obstacles and hazards on the land, allowing for proactive mitigation measures.
Overall, these new technologies have enabled construction leaders to conduct land scouting remotely, reducing the need for a physical presence on the site, and in a more efficient and precise manner, leading to faster project timelines, cost savings, and better project outcomes.

New-age technologies used in land scouting can provide real-time data and information that can be shared with stakeholders in the construction project. This improves communication and collaboration, leading to better project outcomes.
The use of drones and other new-age technologies in land scouting can reduce the need for human workers to be on the site, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. This leads to a safer work environment for construction workers.
Overall, the new processes powered by new-age technologies significantly benefit the construction industry and construction leaders. These processes lead to improved accuracy, increased efficiency, better risk management, improved communication, and enhanced safety, resulting in better project outcomes and higher customer satisfaction.
CONSTRA SCOUTER for Land Scouting
CONSTRA helps you to view your land in 3D, superimpose survey drawings on orthophoto and get highly accurate topographical outputs in CAD format. It helps you immensely while making feasibility studies, purchase decisions and construction plans.
Orthoimage of the site
CONSTRA provides one single 2D top view georeferenced and scaled image of the site is generated from drone data with the boundary of the site overlaid.
2D Map Tools
With CONSTRA, measure distance of any two points anywhere on the orthoimage with very high precision.
With CONSTRA, measure area and perimeter of any part of the site by drawing a polygon on orthoimage of the site.
Scouting Drone Videos & Images of the site
Visualize your site from different angles through precise and high-definition videos shot capture by drone of the site and peripheral areas. The drone scouting video cover up to 2 km of route shot from the site.
3D Point Cloud Model
CONSTRA helps you to create a 3D model of the site where you can do the measurements as well. This model can be used to fly/orbit through the site to visualize and measure the details in 3D and plan the work at hand.
Here is how construction industry and construction leaders are using CONSTRA for their business advantage:
CONSTRA use drone technology to capture high-resolution images and data of the land. Their advanced AI-powered surveying software to create detailed 3D models and maps with a high degree of accuracy. By investing in the latest technologies and continuously updating their tools, CONSTRA ensures that construction leaders have access to the most accurate and up-to-date information possible.
CONSTRA helps construction leaders improve efficiency by using their drones and surveying software to streamline the land scouting process. By automating tasks, CONSTRA reduces the time and cost required to complete the land scouting process, enabling construction leaders to move forward with projects faster.
Map even inaccessible areas
CONSTRA’s drone can easily take off and scout anywhere. With drone technology, no site of your construction project is inaccessible anymore. One can easily reach areas unsuitable for other conventional measuring practices. Most importantly, you don’t have to stop the construction site’s operations during a drone land scouting.
Identify and mitigate potential issues
CONSTRA uses their drones to identify potential hazards and obstacles on the land, helping construction leaders proactively manage risks and mitigate potential issues before they become a problem. By providing real-time data and information, CONSTRA helps construction leaders make more informed decisions about the land they are considering for development.
Real-time data and information
CONSTRA provides construction leaders with real-time data and information through their advanced surveying software. By enabling construction leaders to share this information with stakeholders, CONSTRA improves communication and collaboration, leading to better project outcomes and higher customer satisfaction.
To summarize, CONSTRA’s tech prowess significantly benefits construction leaders in achieving their goals of improved accuracy, increased efficiency, better risk management, improved communication, and enhanced safety, resulting in better project outcomes and higher customer satisfaction.
