Ease of aerial surveying.
Traditional land surveying requires a team in the field, walking the land they are surveying, taking precise measurements, handling equipment, and dealing with potentially difficult terrain. It’s arduous work, especially when you consider all the features that need to be mapped on the land. By providing detailed aerial survey conducted via drone, surveyors can capture important data—from trees, to building locations, roads, and bodies of water, with much more ease.
More detailed data.
Drones can take high-definition photos at different angles, creating millions of data points, including georeferences, elevation points, and colours. Through aerial survey we are able to capture high-resolution 2D orthomosaics and 3D models allowing you to see more detail than traditional methods of surveying.
Some surveys involve navigating challenging terrain that can be dangerous to survey. Surveyors can work safer by leaning on drones for research and mapping, thus reducing potential risks on rugged terrain. Drones are especially useful for mapping inaccessible or difficult to reach areas.
