Drone Surveys: New heights in surveying

What is a Drone?

A drone is also known as a unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), it is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. Drones are a component of an unmanned aircraft system (UAS); which include a Drone, a ground-based controller, and a system of communications between the two. Drone flights can operate with various degrees of autonomy: either under remote control by a human operator or autonomously by onboard computers.

 

Why are Drones useful in surveying?

Drones provide us new way to acquire data; from allowing access to areas previously inaccessible to achieving land surveys in a fraction of the time taken by traditional methods. The use of drones can lead to significant and impressive cost and time savings. Integrating them into our survey solutions ensure our clients get accurate, reliable and complete data.

Our drone teams use the latest drone technology to provide a wide range of surveying and inspection services. These services include condition surveys of assets, construction progress imagery, high resolution orthomosaics for point cloud generation and topographic surveys. These services can be used for a wide range of applications including civil engineering, construction, agriculture and Land Registry boundary verification.
