Aerial surveying is best utilised for large areas which would otherwise be unable to be captured by traditional means, or would take numerous site visits and staff hours to cover. It is also ideal for locations with difficult access or high traffic (pedestrian or vehicle) which would be impacted by shut down periods.
Aerial surveying (often referred to as Photogrammetry or Aerial Mapping) has been in the market for years but advancements in technology and ease of data collection have ensured that it remains at the forefront of survey methods. Once the data is captured it can be further processed to create high resolution orthographic images, digital elevation models and pointclouds giving clients additional deliverable options.
The key benefits of an aerial survey is rapid capture speed, great visualisation and in many cases reduced costs. In fact most projects are able to be captured in a single flyover with little to no disruption to operations, or the general public.
Uses for Aerial Surveying:
• Completing large detail surveys for construction, transport & infrastructure
• Monitoring of construction & site development
• Volumetric calculations for bulk earthworks, stockpiles & landfill
• Hazard assessments
• Disaster & environmental monitoring
• Major sporting events
