Unlocking the Value of Digital Twins through Intuitive Easy-to-Use Interfaces

Digital Twin

Drones are a great platform, or tool, for collecting large amounts of high-quality data. But there are many ways drone data collection services can collect and package that data from video, photographs, thermography, multispectral maps, and photogrammetry to 3D reality models and point clouds.

All of these data sets provide additional information about an asset that can prove valuable insights for a company. However, if a company can take that collected data set, layer it with other data sets, and enrich it with additional information on their asset, with things such as serial numbers, maintenance records, and so on, it becomes something more: a single source of truth about an asset. This kind of single-source is called a digital twin.
