Elevated Surveys

Our specialist team of drone surveyors are both IAA-accredited remote pilots and qualified surveyors. We have significant experience with unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) surveying in both Ireland and Australia. Drone images accurately validate site progress and compliance for development sites, roads, landfills and stockpiles. Drone aerial imagery can be used to provide 3D and panoramic views of properties and their environs for insurance and underwriting risk departments.

We operate the latest in UAV, surveying technology and software to provide high accuracy, high-resolution aerial surveys. We can use our aerial and ground surveys to produce geo-referenced ortho-imagery, dense point clouds, terrain models, volume calculations and spatial data. This data can be used to provide volumetric analysis of stockpiles, topographic surveys, site measurements, levels and profiles.
