Shripad Shewalkar, Kaival Prajapati, Veer Deputy, Komal Parikh


The research strives to enhance digital surveying methodologies for precise and detailed land mapping, utilizing advanced instruments like terrestrial scanners, SLAM scanners, total stations, DGPS, and drones. The survey conducted at Ratnagiri Hill in Udaipur aims to scrutinize and compare the merits and drawbacks of each surveying method. The study outlines a systematic process encompassing data collection, processing, output generation, and validation of survey techniques. It highlights the adaptability of these methods across various
domains, such as building conservation, restoration, and mapping of typically inaccessible areas, emphasizing their potential for time and resource savings. The research underscores the effectiveness of a one-time data collection process for subsequent work, laying the groundwork for the advancement of digital surveying technologies. When integrated with the Total station and DGPS survey, the combination of terrestrial scanners, drones, and SLAM scanners achieves a vertical accuracy of around 32 mm.
