Aerial Mapping & Surveying

Why Aerial Mapping & Surveying using RPAS (Drones)?

Faster – Safer - Smarter
















Capabilities - What we can do for your job site

  • Densified 3D Point Cloud – This is a set of 3D points that reconstruct the model. The X,Y,Z position and the colour information is stored for each point of the Densified Point Cloud.

  • Digital Surface & Terrain Model – Get the elevation value of each pixel, with or without above-ground objects, ready for your preferred GIS workflow, such as Surpac | Virtual Surveyor

  • Orthomosaic – A geolocated high-resolution map with each pixel of the original images projected onto the digital surface mode.

  • Volume Calculation – Accurate volume calculations on a perfect representation of your stockpiles, with fully-adjustable base height.

  • Contour Lines – A simplified representation of the topography with closed contours displaying the elevation.

  • 3D Textured Model – Triangular mesh with photo realistic texture.

  • Reflectance Maps – Assess reflectance based on the pixel value in multispectral or thermal imagery.

  • Index Maps (NDVI, NDRE) – Work with well-known indices such as NDVI and NDRE used by agriculture drones or create custom indices.

  • Application Maps – Aggregate and visualize the values derived from your index maps.

  • Thermography – A radiometrically accurate map with a temperature value of each pixel.

We encourage you to book a no obligation onsite demonstration to witness the amazing capabilities of RPAS technologies.

With RPAS (Remote Piloted Aircraft Systems) Drone surveying becoming more common across industry and in particular extractive (Mining - Quarrying - Waste) industries across the globe, you need to ensure that you’re using your site data wisely and efficiently. Let’s go over some ways to use your drone data to improve your job site operations and management.

5 Simple Ways RPAS Can Improve Your Job site

1. Manage your job site material volumes accurately and simply.

2. Ensure your environmental plan is being measured and managed.

3. Track progress against job site design frequently.

4. Improve safety on your job site.

5. Manage your job site people and traffic management plans easily
