UAV & Drone Services For Aerial
And Topographic Surveys
What Is UAV Survey?
A UAV survey, (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Survey), is a type of survey that uses a small, unmanned aircraft, also known as a drone, to collect data and images from the air. UAVs are equipped with cameras, sensors, and other instruments that can capture high-resolution images and other data, such as topographic maps and 3D models. UAV surveys are often used in a variety of applications, including mapping, surveying, agriculture, forestry, and environmental monitoring. They can be an efficient and cost-effective way to collect data and images from hard-to-reach or hazardous areas.
The Benefit Of UAV Drone Surveying?
Benefits Of Our UAV Drone Inspection
Type DJI 300 / DJI 600
We have two types of drones and the DJI Phantom 3 and DJI Phantom 6 are popular models of consumer drones that are often used for inspection tasks. Some benefits of using these drones for inspection purposes include:
High Quality Imaging
Both the DJI Phantom 3 and DJI Phantom 6 are equipped with high-resolution cameras, allowing them to capture detailed images and video.
Using a drone for inspections can reduce the need for workers to access hazardous or hard-to-reach areas, improving safety.
Drones can be a cost-effective alternative to traditional inspection methods, as they require fewer resources and less time to complete inspections.
Drones can cover large areas quickly, allowing for faster inspection workflows.
Drones can capture high-resolution images and video, which can provide greater detail and accuracy than would be possible with traditional inspection methods.
Easy Data Sharing
Drones can capture and transmit data in real-time, making it easy to share with team members or clients.

There are several limitations to using drones for surveying and mapping:
- Range: The range of most drones is limited, which means that they can only cover relatively small areas in a single flight. This can be a problem for large-scale surveys.
- Battery life: The battery life of most drones is limited, which means that they can only be flown for a few hours at a time. This can be a problem for long-duration surveys or for projects that require a large number of flights.
- Weather: Drones are affected by weather conditions such as wind, rain, and snow, which can make it difficult to fly them consistently.
- Regulations: In many countries, there are strict regulations that govern the use of drones, including rules about where they can fly and what they can be used for. This can be a problem for projects that require drones to fly in certain areas or at certain altitudes.
- Cost: Drones and the equipment needed to conduct a survey can be expensive, which can be a limitation for some projects.
- Accuracy: The accuracy of drone surveys is generally lower than surveys conducted using other methods such as ground-based surveying or aerial photogrammetry. This can be a problem for projects that require high levels of accuracy.
There are many different types of drones that can be used for surveying and mapping, and the best choice will depend on the specific requirements of the project. Some factors to consider when selecting a drone for surveying include:
- Payload capacity: The drone will need to be able to carry the sensors or other payloads that are needed to collect the data for the survey.
- Range: The drone will need to be able to fly far enough to cover the area that needs to be surveyed.
- Battery life: The drone will need to be able to fly for long enough to complete the survey.
- Accuracy: The drone will need to be able to collect data with the required level of accuracy.
- Cost: The cost of the drone and its equipment should be considered in relation to the budget for the survey.
Some examples of drones that are commonly used for surveying and mapping include the DJI Phantom 4 RTK, the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual, and the Parrot Anafi USA.
