Aerial Mapping and Surveying

By using a photogrammetry process, high quality drone images and data can assist to create aerial maps capable of producing the following:

  • detailed high resolution 2D orthomosaic images.
  • measurements of height length  area and volume.
  • elevation layers.
  • 3D models(.obj) and point clouds (LAS and .XYZ).
  • Annotated reports on Progress and site issues.
  • Cut and Fill volumes of stockpiles.
  • Distance and Slope measurements.
  • Plant health monitoring

Hence, all of the above can be exported into formats such as Geotiff, Jpeg, PDF, Contour Shapefile, Raw elevation DEM, Contour DXF files. Those are ideal for use in Auto CAD and other software.

Building and Design Plans can be overlaid onto orthomosaics and maps generated from repeated flights can also be overlaid on top of each other to better illustrate progress over time.

In addition, carrying out aerial surveys with drones and utilising RTK/GPS measurement recording ensure that when processed each successful drone survey can produce results accurate to within 1-3 cm.


In addition we can generate annotated reports for

  • plant health reports
  • stockpile volume reports
  • Roof inspection reports
  • site surveys progress reports
  • Survey processing and accuracy report

As well as accuracy our services offer a higher efficiency and turnaround time. For example, a survey of ten acre plot can be completed in under an hour,plus using a drone negates the health and safety risks of trying to measure hard to reach areas and places with dangerous terrain by traditional means. All of our operations can be carried out while maintaining a social distance and minimizing the risk of spreading Covid-19.

Aerial surveying with drones is a fast and cost effective way of gathering accurate survey grade data and measurements and can be used by a wide range of industries to improve accuracy and production.
