UAVs are the perfect platform for performing a wide range of aerial surveys and high quality mapping. Advantages of using UAVs / drones for surveying include the potential of covering larger areas in a shorter time frame than traditional land surveying methods. As well as covering larger areas, varied terrain can also be covered with minimum risk to the operators.
Unlike traditional land surveying techniques, UAV topographical surveys provide the following data :
- Photo map of survey area
- Geotagged photographs of the site
- RGB Point Cloud
- Digital Elevation Model
Aerial surveys can be carried out using Photogrammetry. Photogrammetry is the science of making precise measurements from photographs. The output of photogrammetry is typically a map, drawing, measurement or a 3D model of a real-world object or scene.
The different applications for Aerial Surveys using our UAV’s include :
- Site Surveys
- Pre tendering surveys
- Stockpile analysis
- Volumetric studies
- Flood plain analysis
- Forestry Survey – Wind blown damage
- Environmental impact studies
