Project story

To take the roof measuring industry to a whole new level, VantedgePoint asked us to build a complex measurement system, using drones. The client creates an account, then chooses a services package and a property type. The fun part begins at generating reports and 3D models. These are based on accurate measurements gathered by drones.

A detailed plan is created in a web interface for the pilot, which includes the take-off and landing time and the type of overflight (snake or orbit). Based on the type of camera used and the overflight type, some calculations are made: flight altitude, distance, duration of flight and the angle that the pictures should be taken in.

Technologies and architecture

This project was built using Laravel, JavaScript, jQuery and Vue.js for notifications. We used AWS for storage and Amazon SQS for communicating with the 3D file generator. The generated files can also be downloaded in .kml format for Google Earth and for that we used Google Maps and its API for sketching on these maps. Last but not least, we used Sketchfab for the 3D files visualisation.
