Montana Drone Company offers numerous different aerial drone services, but one of them is drone modeling and volume calculations. MDC can 3D model about anything and here's a great case study to show the usefulness through volume calculations completed at Roseburg Forest Products in Missoula, MT. At the first of every month, the yard is flown with an automated flight which then generates a 3D model. Through the use of DroneDeploy software, each individual pile can be highlighted to mark the points for calculation. The software then provides area and volume calculations based on the modeling information.
