Monitoring is an important part of project management with the aim of knowing how far the project is running and whether there are obstacles during the project’s running. At present, this monitoring process cannot be done in real-time, and conventional monitoring tends to be expensive and error prone. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is a technology that began to be developed to overcome these problems. The research discussed the use of UAVs for realtime monitoring, with quantitative and qualitative methodologies using primary and secondary data. The results of the research indicate that: (1) UAVs produce 3D photogrammetric that provide more detailed and easier results in real time monitoring, (2) The use of UAV is 35,41% faster, accuracy reaches 71.22%, more economical up to 78%, productivity level of up to 94,48% compared to conventional methods, (3) Limitation of UAV capability in conducting real-time monitoring, including battery power, and not yet waterproof.
