Drone Survey

Understand the environment

drone / UAV Survey

From gaining site situational awareness to delivering Photomosaics & Digital Elevation Models we can help with your project

How can a Drone / UAV help?

A drone offers a number of advantages over more traditional data capture techniques:

  • Data is captured from the air, very quickly
  • Resolutions can be as high sub 1cm per pixel
  • Data captured can be processed into Photomosaics
  • Data captured can be processed into 3D models

Reducing the time spent on the ground means staff safety is improved by minimising risk to teams when measuring sites such as quarries, unstable slopes and transportation routes.

Our Equipment

Our primary platform for survey work is the  Zenith which is capable of carrying a wide range of camera payloads.  The Zenith has a larger operating envelope than most UAVs as it is able to operate in high winds and also in light rain and snow.

We can get to high quality survey data more quickly and with less operating risk than traditional approaches.

We also operate with £10m of public liability for your peace of mind.

NOT ALL SURVEYS ARE THE SAME

3D point clouds look amazing, they can lull you into a feeling of absolute accuracy when in fact they are not.  Its important to understand the quality criteria you need for your project and if your supplier can deliver it.

To deliver highly accurate surveys sufficient ground control points must be used, tied to an appropriate coordinate system and datum.  There’s a significant difference between delivering absolute accuracy and relative accuracy in terms of time and cost.
