Drones are transforming the way we see the world

A drone is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). UAVs can either be Fixed-Wing drones or Multi-Rotor drones.

Multi-rotor drones are great for inspections and surveys
Fixed-wing drones have a longer flight time/range but are less manoeuvrable

As drones get more affordable and versatile they are becoming more accessible to all sorts of people who would have never been mapping before. However, a professional surveyor who has an in-depth understanding of modelling the real world can produce better quality models. Surveyors have an in-depth understanding of measuring and modelling the real world. Surveyors understand what goes in has a direct bearing on what comes out. Building in precision means a process that often involves work without a single point being measured. A full understanding of precision and repeatability and a rigorous approach to data gathering transforms average data into precise data that is also accurate. Efficient workflows, compliant with the CAA GVC using survey-grade DJI drones underpin that.

Accuracy and precision aren’t the same

Drones: Accuracy and precision aren't the same

We provide the following drone services:

Aerial based Land Surveys offer the best data coverage, accuracy, with highly visual deliverables using Airborne Photogrammetry and Lidar/Laser Scanning.

Faster

Faster than a conventional survey

Cheaper

More cost effective than a traditional survey

Safer

Less boots on the ground in risky or inaccessible locations

Accurate

Highest relative and absolute accuracy

Cheaper

Targeted and repeatable data acquisition

Coverage

Maximised efficiency, data coverage and deliverables

Ground Land Surveys evolves with drones

We have over 30 years experience as Land Surveyors. As a profession land surveyors have seen many changes over the years as technology changes have yielded huge productivity increases.

Drones have now elevated the survey workflow to a whole new level. Drone based land surveys, using photogrammetry and Lidar remote sensing technology, are allowing land surveyors to literally reach new heights of data acquisition. The deliverables for our clients are equally impressive with visually stunning and precise 3d models. Contact us if you would like to see how these deliverables can transform how you do business.
