The construction industry is always looking for new, creative ways to increase the effectiveness and precision of its operations. The use of drones for cut-and-fill operations in construction is one area where great progress has been made. Construction sites are now being surveyed by drones in order to gather data for analysis and decision-making. In this paper, we examine the usage of drones for cut and fill operations in construction and how they might be used in conjunction with aerial analytics technologies to produce better outcomes. We present a case study in which a construction site was surveyed by drones in order to gather topographic and elevational data. To create detailed maps and 3D models of the location, this data was analyzed using a suite of aerial analytics technologies. The article's findings demonstrate that traditional surveying techniques can be greatly sped up and cost-effectively replaced by drones in cut and fill construction operations. Additionally, using aerial analytics technologies enables a more precise and in-depth analysis of the collected data. As a result, we draw the conclusion that the application of drone technology and aerial analytics has the potential to transform the construction sector and boost project productivity.
