About Propeller Platform

Propeller is a web-based analytics and data visualization platform which allows users to measure and map their worksites through 3D site surveys. The software is designed to streamline stockpile measurements, design conformance and road-grade checks, and volumetrics, and enable visual assessment of sites.

Data from drone surveys is used to create 3D site surveys in Propeller Platform. All data processed through the platform is delivered with filtering analysis, checkpoint verification, and processing reports, and is reviewed by Propeller’s data team to ensure its quality. Stockpile and pit volumners can be calculated within seconds to provide accurate inventory estimates. The platform can also be used for blasting and extraction planning, and haul road monitoring with its 3D visuals and simple measurement tools.

Propeller Platform provides users with a timeline of their site surveys, enabling visual assessment of progress over time and identification of nonconformance issues. Design surfaces can also be uploaded for comparison against site surveys. Measurement breakdowns are recorded in downloadable CSV and PDF reports, and users can share reports with colleagues. Direct-to-measurement hyperlinks are included to simplify collaboration between users.

Key benefits of Propeller Platform

• A full 3D site model allows users to create full virtual walkthroughs, and streamline volumetrics, stockpile measurements, design conformance checks, and road-grade checks.

• Data quality can be verified with processing reports, checkpoint verification, and filtering analysis delivered with every dataset.

• The timeline slider allows users to visually assess surveys of their site over time and compare progress made.

• Design surfaces and linework can be uploaded and compared against the final grade with single-point, cross-section, or surface-to-surface comparisons.

• Propeller’s data team review design uploads, images, and checkpoints to ensure that all data is processed accurately.

Fast and Accurate Drone Data Processing and Analysis

Reviewed on 2020/04/01

Pros

Using Propeller is so fast, I have been able to spend all of my time in the field, collecting aerial data, instead of hours and hours tinkering with processing software. I have processed sites ranging from 1 acre, to 4000 acres. Then analyzing the data is also fast and intuitive. Running stockpile calcs, measuring road slopes, pond volumes, surface area, cut/fill reports, elevation color maps, the list of measurements and analysis reports is long. Customer service is mainly via online chat, although response is quick, and they always solve my problems.

Cons

None that I can think of currently, the Propeller team is always adding features and functionality. They listen to user feedback incorporate it into future releases.

My overall experience has been fantastic. I've been a Propeller head for several years. Propeller has listened to my concerns, added and made adjustments based on feedback and created a platform that answers many diverse needs that aerial data provides. The customer service has never left me in the dark and typically works very well to get my questions/problems address.
I view Propeller as my silent partner in the background.

Pros

I really enjoy seeing all my data in 3 dimensions before me. It allows me to view and manipulate the data in all sorts of ways and the ability to share this with team members, seamlessly, is vital in today's world.

Cons

The software does not always tell you the truth, at first glance. You must really be aware of how the calculations are performed, or you could end up accidental reporting a false number.
I also find that loading models and other drawings into Propeller can be frustrating, although it seems to be getting easier.

Overall very pleased working along side the Propeller team they are fast and happy to assist you with a problem and I believe they are leading edge in drone surveying! Keep up the good work!

Pros

Very user friendly you can walk anyone through how to use the software over the phone. Being able to pull quantities and print them out in reports is probably the best part of the software for what we do as a heavy highway construction company.

Cons

Need to be able to see the proposed line work in the reports would be very beneficial so owners can see what part of the job we are referencing to.

Wonderful. The Propeller Platform and support team have achieved a Standard of Excellence that other software vendors should strive to emulate.

Pros

Propeller provides an ideal online platform to easily and accurately combine drone survey with CAD designs. This enables our project teams to visualise issues, explore design options, and verify earthworks claims. The support team at Propeller are diligent professionals who provide genuine 24x7 technical support on the odd occasion when issues arise during data uploads or regular usage.

Cons

Propeller does a wonderful job of data visualisation. It integrates well with other key CAD software tools, which supports full design processes. I see no gaps or weaknesses for our requirements.

The best survey drone service I’ve ever used

My over all experience has been great at this time. I always have someone there to walk me through any problems that I experience and always get quality work from the drone and service.

Pros

I like the ease of access and the quality of product that I receive from propellers processing software, I never have to worry if my contours that the drone and software created are incorrect or not, with the software that I’ve used in the past I would always have to worry that the elevations that were generated were wrong and with propeller I don’t have that worry at all. I like that with the rtk drone I don’t have much setup time at all, I get out create my flight and use one aero point and get to flying then processing, the other service took a lot longer to preform these task. Overall great workflow experience

Cons

the only con is not having a hard case to keep my aero point in, at times when I take it out it looks a little bent and I am not sure if it affects the quality but that would be the only thing I would change at this time.
