The advantages of using UAVs for surveying and mapping are obvious when considered. They can go to the top of the highest masts and look at vast expanses of land, while also being able to hone in on the smallest detail. UAV use results in faster, cheaper, and more accurate and reliable data which can be used and analysed repeatedly. UAVs can also be used in confined spaces and harsh environments and can check for safety issues before a technician is sent in, meaning a safer environment for workers. In short, drones go where you can’t or don’t really want to!
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) provide a unique, efficient, cost effective and safe method as an alternative to, or to complement, traditional labour intensive 2D ground-based surveying methods. Each project varies, but a typical 100 acre aerial survey can be completed in the morning, the data then processed and the 2D map / 3D model completed for distribution the following day.
Because of a simple workflow and easily repeatable data capture, maps and models can be updated as often as required.
Quickly and accurately quantify earthworks, and monitor construction sites as they evolve using georeferenced orthophotos and 3D data. View the as-built situation of your site for accurate up-to-date measurements, progress tracking and continued analysis, making earthworks, BIM and detailed virtual inspections more efficient and effective.
From orthomosaic and topographical maps, to 3D Point Cloud Models, our aerial survey data brings real benefits to a number of industries, providing detailed information for engineers, architects and managers whether for design, monitoring or inspection & maintenance.
