Drone Surveys FAQs

Drone surveys provide diverse outputs, including 3D Cloud Point, Orthomosaic maps, Digital Terrain Models (DTM), Digital Surface Models (DSM), contour lines, and 3D textured mesh. Specific deliverables depend on factors such as the camera or sensors used, the processing software, and the unique requirements of each project. 

Safety is prioritised in drone surveys by eliminating the need for individuals to work at heights and heavy equipment, reducing the risk of falls and on-site incidents. This compares favourably to traditional survey methods, which often involve working at elevated heights, presenting higher safety risks. 

Drone surveys eliminate the need for expensive supplementary equipment like cherry pickers or scaffolding, resulting in cost savings.

Additionally, high-quality photographic and video records can be captured swiftly, streamlining the survey process and reducing project timelines. 

Drones are versatile, excelling in various survey types, including land and topographic surveys, quarry and mineral surveys, construction site surveys, infrastructure and property surveys, and environmental and forestry surveys.  

Their applicability spans industries such as construction, infrastructure, and environmental monitoring. 

Drone surveys boast high accuracy, typically reaching up to +/-1cm. Precision depends on factors like the specific drone used, supporting equipment, and the processing software. Quality of the drone, on-site equipment, and the software for data processing all influence precision. 

A drone survey utilises unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to capture data and create a digital terrain model of a mapped area. Equipped with cameras, the UAVs are remotely controlled and can follow pre-programmed flight paths.
