Why choose an aerial survey?

Using orthorectified imagery our drone can survey any area that we can then geolocate the image to be in terms of your boundary.
aerial survey over orchard


We have surveyed a 70 hectare property with a flight time of 1.5 hours. Less than a day's work that would typically take more than a week using conventional methods.

The drone can fly into areas that are not safe for people to work in. Areas such as cliffs, high banks, deep holes, and limited access areas are not a problem anymore.
contour plans can be laid over the drone image


We can produce contour plans with the drone image as a background picture. We can also send clients a .kml file that can be viewed on programs like Google Earth.

Point clouds

Point cloud data is useful for design, 3D viewing, and creating digital terrain models (DTM). The drone can quickly survey ground elevation over large areas - up to 50mm accuracy.
