Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Scanning (UAV)
An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) is an unaided aircraft, meaning that it doesn’t hold a pilot. They are also commonly known as drones. They tend to be armed with high definition cameras which allow them to take imagery of wide areas of land from afar.
UAV’s can be used to collect geographical data for the creation of high density, highly accurate ortho-rectified photos, 3D models and point clouds. UAVs are particularly useful for the survey of difficult sites to enter, such as quarries, sandpits and landfills. High resolution geo-referenced images are collected and used to collect millions of data points in a very short amount of time.
As UAV aerial specialists, with access to unmanned aerial vehicles fitted with high resolution photo equipment, our expert aerial surveying professionals can map small or large areas such as mine sites, landfill facilities and more.
