There are many benefits to using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones. Aerial footage can enhance municipal project planning and design. And when we combine UAV footage with 3D animation, we bring ideas to life.
The recently completed County Highway 61/Highway 41 visualization project used 3D animation over UAV footage to demonstrate planned improvements. Community members were able to recognize local buildings and landmarks, while the 3D rendering represented what is to be. By sharing this enhanced video with stakeholders and residents, we provided a better understanding of and connection to the project in a way that could not be achieved using other methods.
Bolton & Menk is licensed as a Commercial Operator with MnDOT, and approved to fly in Minnesota, Iowa, and North Dakota.
We have a fleet of various types of UAVs for each application, all registered and insured. In addition to a 3D animation specialist, Bolton & Menk has staff certified by the FAA under Part 107 as licensed Remote Pilots.
