Recognized as one of the 30 best books in civil engineering by BookAuthority.org
“Your book is incredible. Thank you for taking the time to get into the details, for including the major companies, and for relating everything back to good management practices. Anyone who talks about UAVs, Lean Processes, Integrated Project Delivery, Six Sigma, or innovation in general should read this book. The rubber meets the road here.”

Biz Owners, to Students… an important read
“Would recommend for all levels from Biz Owners to Students. Lots of fundamentals for those new to the industry, but also a lot of modern concepts. Be sure to go through the links and references. For those trying to make a big splash, be ready to break out your calculator, and write in the margins. I’ll be making sure all of my employees read this one.”
Robert Charvat, Owner, Ohio Drone LLC
Great resource for leveraging drones for infrastructure projects
“Success with Drones in Civil Engineering is a great book for anyone interested in leveraging UAVs or UAS for reality modeling. The book is organized well and the author does an excellent job explaining drone systems, rules and regulations, and the do’s and don’ts of how to utilize drones for projects. It contains valuable information such as use cases, resources, lessons learned, and a checklist of what you need for drone safety and operations. Bentley System’s reality modeling software takes drone imagery and automatically generates an accurate 3D model, and this book is a great resource for professionals looking to use drones in North America for reality modeling.
Chintana Herrin, Amazon reviewer
