Aerial Mapping Survey

Aerial Mapping Survey

Here at Target Surveys, all of our pilots are CAA certified to fly and conduct Aerial Mapping Surveys across a wide range of commercial and retail sites. All of our drones are equipped with high-resolution cameras to capture detailed aerial photographs with survey-grade accuracy, ensuring the final result is as detailed and precise as possible.

Unlike traditional surveying methods, drones allow surveyors to reach areas, like quarries and landfill sites, that would have been previously inaccessible. Not only does this allow us to cover larger areas of land more quickly, but it also allows for the collection of a larger data set. 

All the drones we use at Target Surveys are capable of collecting data points from millions of points, all of which can be stitched together, creating highly reliable and accurate images that can be used to form a 2D map or 3D model, depending on your requirements.

What Is An Aerial Mapping Survey?

An Aerial Mapping Survey is conducted to survey land that would be otherwise impossible or impractical to survey on the ground. Data gathered includes aerial photographs, Lidar, remote sensing and even geophysical data. 

All of the drones at Target Surveys are equipped with specialist, high-resolution cameras; ranging from RGB to multispectral, thermal and LiDAR. 

Our highly skilled drone pilots are able to capture highly detailed images of a landscape or site in an efficient and detailed manner – in some instances, this method of surveying can be up to 90% faster than traditional methods. 

Once the drone has collected the respective data, it can map it to create a wide range of high-quality assets, such as 3D models, 2D maps, elevation models and much more, depending on your unique requirements.

The Benefits Of Aerial Mapping With A Drone

  • By using a drone to collect and capture images, you can collect and analyse data in a way that is much quicker than traditional surveying methods. 
  • It can be used for a wide range of services, including land surveying, roof inspections, bridge/building surveys, infrastructure maintenance, and much more!
  • Drones are a safer, quicker and more accurate way of gathering data, that also allow you to access previously inaccessible sites or locations.
  • The data collected by the drone can be processed to create a range of assets, such as 3D models and 2D maps! Professionals can then extract highly accurate measurements and volumetric calculations from these deliverables. 
  • This information helps with informed decision-making, provides valuable insights – including identifying mistakes or problems and, keeping up to date with the progress of a project – and streamlines effective communication with colleagues, stakeholders and the community.
