Drone magnetometry, compared to other methods, is much cheaper, versatile and efficient. With aerial magnetometry, subsurface exploration can be done to locate mineral veins and other identifiable structures through magnetic anomaly maps.
Magnetometric measurement and inspection yields data for planning and exploration. Its applications include oil characterization, mineral resource exploitation, search of magnetic artifacts, characterization of aquifers, among others.
Aerial inspection with drones adds value and intelligence for different sectors of the industry, it is a review to prevent, detect or correct some kind of problem. By using a drone, qualitative and quantitative information can be collected from an asset or a location of difficult access, making the inspection safe and efficient.
Aerial photogrammetry with drones allows the generation of 2D images, 3D surfaces, and three-dimensional digital models. Photogrammetry has applications in mining, geotechnics, geology, geophysics, civil works, archaeology, among others.
