Airocollect is a cloud software that helps in creating a measurable digital 3D model of a building or terrain based on a drone-scan. You can use this to speed up your measurements, to make better raw material estimates, to avoid discussion about your invoices… in short to save money!
Airocollect saves you time throughout your processes. You can scan the entire terrain in 10 minutes during your first visit – without having to get your tape measure out.
You can export the generated digital 3D model and use it in your favourite design software to save hours of drawing the current situation.
Behind your computer, you indicate all the measurements you need (surfaces, volumes, distances…) and with one click you generate a summary report. For example, you can add this to your invoices to avoid discussions.
Can I get with my truck through that narrow gate? Where should I position my crane? Check it with airoCollect before you go on site!
You’ll never have to return to your customer for a missing measurement!
We’ve made the scanning and processing really easy. Using the Airocollect app the drone flies automatically to take the pictures. Afterwards, you upload the images and Airocollect will generate the digital model for you. Once the model is ready, you can start measuring and even share the results with your colleagues and customers.
For most applications we recommend using a MINI drone. As this drone weighs less than 250gr, you don’t need to have a drone pilot license to operate it in most countries. Considering local aerospace & privacy rules it’s possible to fly almost anywhere.
If you need directly georeferenced results, or you need to scan large areas, we recommend using an RTK drone. These drones are equipped with centimeter accurate GNSS. As these drones are heavier than 250gr a drone pilot license is needed (A2 in Europe) to operate them.
Note that for both types of drones its possible to add ground control points (GCP). A ground control point is a point with known coordinates that you can provide to airoCollect to help to get a higher coordinate accuracy and avoid scale errors on large projects.

The Time Saved is calculated depending on the type of activity.
Making a quotation
– We estimate that Airocollect can save you 4 hours per quotation.
Why? Without Airocollect it takes on average 2 hours to do a measurement, 1 hour to make a basic calculation and 1.5 hours to make the necessary visuals (4.5 hours in total). With Airocollect you need 15 minutes to do the scan, 10 minutes to measure in Airocollect and 5 minutes to generate a visual summary (30 minutes in total).
Making a design
– We estimate that Airocollect can save you 8 hours per design.
Why? Without Airocollect it takes on average 4 hours of measuring and 4.5 hours of creating a digital baseline of the project in your software (8.5 hours in total). With Airocollect you need 15 minutes to do the scan and 15 minutes to set out the baseline based on the generated digital (3D) model (30 min in total).
Following up work sites
– We estimate that Airocollect can save you 8 hours per site. 4 hours at the start and 4 hours at the end.
Why? Without Airocollect we estimate that on average 2.5 hours are needed to perform the measurements and 2 hours to process them in the office (4.5 hours in total). With Airocollect you’ll need 15 minutes to do the scan and 15 minutes to measure volumes, height profiles, surfaces, distances… and generate an export (30 min in total).
The Profit Increase is the total of time saved times the hourly rate.
How does the Airocollect subscription license work?
Airocollect works with annual licenses of which the price is based on how many scans you do.
During this period access is granted to all datasets within and functionality based upon your subscription plan.
The BUSINESS and ENTERPRISE subscriptions enable you to perform unlimited scans with 2 drones for a fixed annual license fee.
The SMALL and MEDIUM subscriptions allow you to manage the cost depending on your business activity. If you sign on for a SMALL (12 scans a year) or MEDIUM (24 scans a year) subscription your account will be topped up every year with respectively 12 or 24 new scans.
