How Accurate is Photogrammetry?

While LIDAR (laser-measuring) has always been the favoured approach for high-accuracy projects, survey managers generally end up filtering most of the data out of their point clouds.

Photogrammetry is the cost-effective alternative, and when paired with drone technology, which is able to capture images from 400ft in the air, provides a high-level overall view of any project with data accuracy that is very comparable with other survey methods.
