DENVER (CBS4)– Drones are helping reveal the true topography of Red Rocks, measuring every inch of the cliffs that were nearly impossible before the technology emerged.

“We’re going to be flying over the amphitheatre and the surrounding area,” said Tristan Randall of Autodesk.

Drones use software from Autodesk, which is 3D design engineering and entertainment software, while circling the amphitheatre and send back the best visuals ever taken of the iconic concert venue and park.

“We can create a perfect map of this so there will be no surprises,” said CEO of 3DR Drones Chris Anderson.

The images are used to create a digital map of one of the most challenging terrains. The final product includes detail like individual cracks in the rocks and limbs on the trees, down to a half inch accuracy.

The digital imaging could help the venue monitor changes in the landscape, test lighting for concerts before they happen and make improvements to the facility.

“The great thing about a perfect map is you can know what you’ll change before you do it,” said Anderson.

Engineers believe these kind of maps have endless applications and can solve some issues in minutes. The drones could help with productivity in the construction industry where there are huge losses.
