Drone Survey

Share now

Aerial surveys involve the utilization of UAVs (drones) to gather geomatics or alternative imagery. These surveys offer insights into aspects that may not be visible or reachable from the ground.

Purpose of a drone survey
A drone survey is a cost-efficient way to map the area below. They are also referred to as a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) surveys or UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) surveys. The UAV is outfitted with cameras and propelled into the air by motors and propellers. They can be controlled by a remote ground control system, also known as a ground cockpit.

Benefits of a drone survey
Choosing a drone survey offers several advantages. Drones are cost-effective, eliminating the need for additional equipment and reducing setup and teardown time. They are time-effective, capturing high-quality photos and videos quickly. Drones enhance safety by eliminating the need for working at heights, minimizing the risk of accidents. They also minimize disruption to property and can access locations that traditional equipment may find challenging. With improved data acquisition capabilities, drone surveys are a versatile and efficient solution for various surveying needs.

the overall expenses associated with a drone survey, including equipment rental, setup, and teardown costs, are lower compared to traditional methods such as using cherry pickers or scaffolding. In essence, opting for a drone survey helps save money and resources.

Drones can quickly capture high-quality photographs and videos, completing the survey process in a shorter timeframe. This efficiency is beneficial for projects where timely data acquisition is crucial. The swift data collection capability of drones contributes to a more expedited surveying process overall.

Drones eliminate the need for personnel to work at heights, reducing the risk of falls and on-site incidents. This aspect enhances overall safety during surveying operations, contributing to a safer work environment .

Unlike traditional survey methods that might require closing off access to the site, drones can operate without disrupting regular activities. This advantage is particularly valuable in situations where continuous operations or access to the site must be maintained, as drone surveys can be conducted with minimal impact on the surrounding property or environment.

Drones can access challenging or remote locations, such as pitched roofs, quarry edges, and waterlogged areas, where surveyors or cherry pickers may encounter limitations. This advantage allows for a more comprehensive and versatile surveying approach, expanding the range of areas that can be effectively assessed and mapped.

Drones are equipped with advanced technology that allows them to capture high-resolution images and videos with precision. Compared to traditional methods like cherry pickers and scaffolding, drones offer a more efficient and effective means of acquiring accurate and detailed data. This improvement in data acquisition contributes to the overall quality and reliability of the survey results, enabling better decision-making in various applications.
