The surveying landscape has undergone a significant transformation, thanks to the integration of drone technology. From construction sites to vast mining terrains, drones are proving to be invaluable assets, offering efficiency, accuracy, and safety. Let's delve into how these flying marvels are revolutionizing the surveying industry.View solutions
Say goodbye to time-consuming traditional methods. Drones can survey vast areas in mere minutes, delivering results faster than ever before
Navigate challenging terrains and hazardous sites from a safe distance. Let drones do the heavy lifting while minimizing risks and improving your team's safety.
With advanced cameras, GNSS sensors, and photogrammetry software, drones guarantee survey-grade accuracy, ensuring every detail is captured with utmost precision.
Reduce manpower, save time, and cut down on operational costs. Drones offer a return on investment that's hard to ignore.
Canopy Penetration: LiDAR can penetrate vegetation canopies and capture ground-level data, making it ideal for creating accurate Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) in forested areas.
Accuracy: LiDAR typically offers higher vertical accuracy compared to photogrammetry, especially in challenging terrains or dense vegetation.
Independence from Lighting: LiDAR does not rely on sunlight or external lighting, allowing for data collection during nighttime or overcast conditions.
Direct 3D Data: LiDAR directly captures 3D point cloud data, which can be processed without the need for image matching or stereo interpretation.
Reflectance Measurement: LiDAR sensors measure the reflectance of objects, which can be used for classifying materials based on their reflective properties.
Less Post-Processing: LiDAR data typically requires less post-processing compared to photogrammetry, especially in areas with shadows or varying light conditions.
Define your survey area and set the drone's flight path.
Fly the drone over the survey area, ensuring it captures all necessary data.
Use photogrammetry software to process the captured images and generate the required surveying outputs.
Analyze the data and create detailed reports for further use
Drone surveys can achieve centimeter-level accuracy, making them comparable to traditional surveying methods. The accuracy depends on various factors, including the drone’s equipment, flight altitude, and the use of ground control points.

These are detailed, high-resolution maps created by stitching together individual aerial photos. They are geometrically corrected ("orthorectified") to ensure a uniform scale, providing an accurate representation of the Earth's surface. Orthomosaic maps are commonly used in agriculture, urban planning, and environmental monitoring.
DEMs represent the Earth's surface topography or terrain, showing the elevation of each point on the map. They are crucial for applications like flood modeling, land development, and construction planning.
These datasets represent objects or the ground in three dimensions. Point clouds are foundational for creating other 3D models and are widely used in construction, mining, and archaeology for detailed site analysis.
Displaying lines of equal elevation, contour maps provide a clear visualization of the terrain and its features. They are essential for civil engineering projects, watershed analysis, and land development planning.
