SURVEY MAPPING WITH DRONES
SURVEY MAPPING WITH DRONESFlight operations are conducted to provide detailed imaging of geological formations, bio diversity of vegetation, contour and seep lines, beacon points and property planning in terms of infrastructural development, road access, cut lines and firebreaks etc.
Why should you as a land surveyor use drones?
From a single flight you are able to obtain geo-referenced digital aerial images with extremely high resolution of around 1.5cm per pixel
Quick accurate data collection allows you to focus your time on analysing data rather than collecting it.
Dangerous areas such as mines and steep slopes can safely be done by air using drones removing the risk to humans having to do ground surveillance.
Our brain is mapping the world. Often that map is distorted, but it's a map with constant immediate sensory input.
Survey and Mapping
Engineering and Survey professionals need precise, high definition data reflecting “true ground levels” to survey and plan effectively and the arsenal of optimal “tools’ has grown exponentially with the advent of specialise drone services. Utilising LIDAR, thermal imaging and state of the art software technology, ground crew observation can be cut to an absolute minimum and extremely high definition data captured at a fraction of the cost of conventional analysis.Land Mapping:
- Boundary lines
- Elevations and contour mapping
- Road and irrigation scheme mapping
- Road infrastructure planning and development planning
- Structural inspections of bridge, roads, buildings etc
- Structural integrity surveying
- Digital Terrain Surveying
Application of drones in survey and engineering programmes ensures precise data collated in a cost and time effective manner with least degrees of obstruction or productivity down time.
