We can provide a full aerial inspection, line of sight surveys and georeferenced mapping service using drones at a fraction of the cost of a traditional aircraft.
Drones have revolutionised many aspects of the inspection and mapping industries. Putting a drone into the air means that people can stay on the ground, making hazardous inspections and surveys far less hazardous and often much quicker and therefore cheaper. This is a growing industry and we are flexible and dynamic enough to listen to your requirements and tailor build a solution to suit your needs.
We can provide geo referenced aerial images for integration into GIS platforms using our drones. We can also provide complete Orthophoto Maps and 3d models using the latest software. We use flight planning software that allows us to precisely control flight pattern, speed and camera frame rate to achieve the perfect coverage and overlap.
By using drones we are able to gather information at a lower cost and higher resolution than traditional aircraft and satellites. We are approved suppliers to The Crown Estate.
The map above shows part of a project that we undertook for The Crown Estate. We were tasked to overfly forest areas that had been cleared (including some wind and fire damage) to produce upto date, accurate mapping for the chief forester to be able to plan re-stocking. Previously this had been done every 5 years by helicopter but the reduced costs of drones means that it can now be done every year by cherry picking individual sites. The site totalled 122 acres and we would class this as a medium sized site. In a days work we can map two medium sized sites, dependant upon travel distance in between.
We need to maintain line of sight with the drone at all times
We can fly a maximum distance of 500m away from us and 400 feet up
We can produce highly detailed imagery – far more detailed than traditional aerial imagery – at about 4-5 pixels/centimetre.
We charge a fraction of the price of a helicopter allowing regular mapping on a small scale.
We are able to provide aerial surveys and inspections across Wales and are based on the North coast near Bangor in Gwynedd. We can also cover Cheshire and the North of England. For multi day jobs we are happy to travel across the UK.
