What we do
Benefits of our aerial surveying expertise
🜁 Aerial surveying is ideal for sites where an up-to-date snapshot of the area is required. Our drones can survey areas of land from sections to large farms, accurately, quickly, and cost-effectively.
🜁 There’s a much higher-resolution output from aerial surveying by drones, compared with aircraft.
🜁 Aerial surveying has traditionally been undertaken using aircraft flying at high altitudes so they can cover large areas. Our drones can fly between ground level and 120 metres above the terrain which lets us capture much more detail. Our Part 102 certification enables us to fly higher than 120 metres when larger areas or less detail is required.
🜁 Drones fly beneath the level of clouds, which means we can carry out your aerial survey on an overcast day. This widens the window available for flying and allows for fast turnaround times.
🜁 We use advanced cloud data processing services to produce our maps and 3D models. This process can capture and display details approximately 50 times more detailed than Google Maps.
🜁 Our maps and 3D models can be viewed online with any web browser. This allows the products to be stored conveniently, retrieved quickly, and shared readily with your team members and stakeholders. The maps we produce can also be annotated to mark areas of interest or make measurements.
🜁 We can work with a local, experienced land surveyor if required for any project. We can also use our differential RTK GPS gear to record precise ground-control measurements during surveys, for absolute accuracy.
🜁 Need a physical record? No problem, we can arrange to print your maps up to A0 (84 cm x 119 cm) in size, and laminate the maps to keep them in good condition.
