Remote Sensing

McClure Engineering Company is an industry leader in remote sensing technology. Along with our unmanned aerial systems (UAS) services, MEC can provide quicker, more cost effective, and safer data collection on sites. Our end to end reality capture services ensure that you can effectively communicate 3-dimensional site and building maps to all project stakeholders.

Remote Sensing brings your project to life, allowing even complicated sites and structures to be scanned and displayed with greater clarity than ever before.

UAS also allow for inspection of infrastructure in areas which are difficult to reach in person as well as in delicate natural environments like wetlands that could be damaged by equipment. Our dedication to adapting the latest in automated remote sensing technology will bring actionable data faster and in more detail than ever before.

Our equipment includes:

  • Leica P40 Scanner
  • DJI Phantom 4 Drone
  • senseFly UAS products
  • Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing Technology)

Services provided by scanner include:

  • End to end scanning, processing, and modeling workflow
  • Analysis of floor flatness/levelness
  • Analysis of wall angle/plumb
  • As built 3D structural and MEP for major 3D modeling software. (i.e. Revit, AutoCAD, Plant3D, Microstation)

Services provided by UAS include:

  • Preconstruction surveying and documentation
  • Construction progress updated base maps
  • Utility inspection
  • Bridge monitoring and inspection
  • Promotional pictures and video for marketing
  • Topographical surveying
  • Erosion monitoring and material stockpile volumetrics

Deliverables include:

  • Aerial pictures and videos
  • Photography and videography edited projects
  • Orthorectified base map of project site
  • 3-dimensional point clouds and models
  • Browser based 3D point clouds and models for public access
  • Virtual reality enabled models
  • Point Cloud based heat maps of elevations and elevation changes over time
  • Topographical CAD model of contour lines (DWG, DGN, SHP)
