    There are many things to manage on a construction site. There is communicating with subs, tracking construction progress, maintaining safety on site, keeping track of quantities, and so on. We have been using drones to help with these things by capturing photos and videos during the construction of Allianz Field, a soccer stadium in St Paul, Minnesota. We are able to use cloud processing that stitches the photos together and gives us a couple of useful file formats. We want to share with you all of the workflows and benefits that have come from the data that we have collected. From tracking volume of dirt to overlaying DWG™ technology, there are many workflows for the data that are quicker and easier than you may think. We have a lot to share with you, and we want you to come away with a better understanding of why you may want to use drones on your next project, and what you need to do to get value from the data they can collect.
