AUTOMATIC ROOF MEASUREMENTS


BY DRONE Commercial drone operator Levitate Aerial Imaging has launched a new service taking advantage of developments in artificial intelligence. The drone-generated roof report automatically identifies and measures different roof and edge types, including surface areas, valleys, flashing, ridges, parapets and eaves.


The Drone Deploy application means Levitate can quickly and safely deliver the data essential to roofing repairs, condition assessments, insurance claims and photo-voltaic installations.


The system is +99% accurate, negating the need for estimates, while avoiding having personnel work at height so improving safety. It’s also quick: most drone flights can be completed within one-two hours, with the outputs ready within 24 hours.


Multiple high-resolution overlapping images of the entire structure are captured. These geo-tagged files are then merged into a single orthomosaic map with the Drone Deploy software – essentially a very high definition aerial image that can be used to measure actual distances and areas.


The core output is a detailed analysis of the roof structure – measurement

of all edges, surface areas, ridges, valleys, flashing, hips, parapets and eaves, providing the data needed to make accurate repair, replacement or insurance assessments.


The accompanying high definition images provide a permanent photographic record of the roof, making it easy, safe and fast to identify and quantify slipped tiles, blocked gutters and valleys, damaged


flashing, vegetation and more not visible from the ground.


The outputs also include 3D point cloud DXF files which can be imported into BIM and CAD systems, resulting in actionable and more extensive data than can be collected manually.


Levitate Director Rennie Campbell said: “The service enables building owners, managers, facilities and roofing companies to deliver more accurate roof assessments while staying safe. The visual results are also easy to share with colleagues, clients and contractors, making quotes and recommendations more transparent and straightforward to justify.”
