In previous articles, we explained what Topographic surveys are and what you needed to consider when choosing a Topographic Survey. In this article, we will be sharing how our drone solutions can provide value to your projects by answering the following questions: Are you getting highly accurate and detailed Topographic Surveys? And **how can our drone Topographic Surveys provide you with highly accurate and detailed reports? Keep reading to find how you can get comprehensive data and #ONEUPYOURBUSINESS!

ARE YOU GETTING HIGHLY ACCURATE AND DETAILED TOPOGRAPHIC SURVEYS?

Drones are well adapted to safely and efficiently perform Topographic Surveys, which means no more weeks or months spent trudging over terrain and carrying a tool station as drones have the advantages of:

  • Covering more land in less time
  • Completing a survey in a matter of hours
  • Providing you with a more cost-effective option
  • Adhering to social distancing rules
  • Reducing associated risks by flying around the land with the operator safely operating the drone in a safe place
  • Precision and accuracy of 0.6 centimetres per pixel and 0.7 centimetres per pixel
  • Offering the best resolution of 1 millimetre per pixel in critical situations

To learn more about the benefits of drones, then head over to our Topographical Survey explained article for more information.

HOW CAN OUR DRONE TOPOGRAPHIC SURVEYS PROVIDE YOU WITH HIGHLY ACCURATE AND DETAILED REPORTS?

Our industry-leading experts' team will help deliver quickly and efficiently data-rich and thoroughly detailed Topographic data reports. Working with you from day one, we'll work with you to understand what you want to achieve, letting our cutting-edge drones do all the hard work in a matter of hours, providing you with all the information you could possibly need in the formats of your choice.

Using multi-rotor drones with the precision and accuracy of 0.6 centimetres per pixel and fixed-wing drones offering 0.7 centimetres per pixel, and in business-critical scenarios 1 millimetre per pixel, below we focus on how our drone Topographic Surveys can deliver highly accurate and detailed reports:

EXPERTISE AND INSURANCE

For the last 23 years, we've been using technology to solve our clients' issues. We focus mainly on the Construction, Property, Infrastructure, and Energy sectors. Our focus is the interoperability of our results, ensuring that you can use the files and reports across the whole suite of programs within your business.

In addition to our ample expertise, we have the following insurance policies:

  • £5 million Public Liability
  • Professional Indemnity
  • Cybersecurity Cover
  • Compliance with EC 785/2004

Our Full permission from the Civil Aviation Authority is exceptional. It allows us to operate all types of drones (multirotor or fixed-wing) commercially both during the day and nighttime, with reduced clearances for taking off and landing, extended line of sight, and increased flight altitude, setting us apart from 99% of other drone operators.

We always provide proof of insurance with our project documentation and comprehensive risk assessments.

FAST SURVEY COMPLETION

Our drones are equipped with Real-Time Kinematic technology to deliver accurate Topographic Surveys capturing topographic data 400x faster than traditional methods as drones enable us to cover more ground quickly and more efficiently. With a single flight, we can deliver the Topographic Survey with elevation profiles, orthomosaic, 3D map, digital bare terrain model, and digital surface model compared to a manual inspection which could take countless hours lasting weeks and sometimes months.

REACH OBSTRUCTED AREAS

Drones provide increased manoeuvrability, therefore, providing us with the capability to perform safe inspections. We can fly much more closely to buildings or areas obstructed with reduced risks of injuries. Cameras with optical zoom attached to drones also allow us to get closer to objects and land without putting anyone in harm's way whilst still producing detailed and comprehensive results.

MONEY SAVED

Compared to traditional methods, drones require fewer resources, manual labour and time, making drone surveys more cost-effective.

BIM INTEGRATION AND A RANGE OF OUTPUTS

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is mandatory for construction projects working on government projects, so we ensure that our outputs being BIM-compatible.

Our specialist software will output orthomosaics, digital terrain models, digital surface models, elevation maps, plant health reports, thermal reports (if we use thermal cameras), 3D models, and Point Clouds.

We can export reports to various formats and standards to improve your current workflow and offer ease of access when importing them into your BIM application of choice.

STRICT HEALTH AND SAFETY PROCEDURES

Health and Safety Procedures are adhered to at all times when conducting our operations. We work to our health and safety guidelines and regulations that your sites might require.

We use the very best PPE, ensuring our high visibility clothing is compliant with EN 13034, our yellow hard hats with EN 397, our waterproof safety boots with EN 20345, and our safety goggles with EN 166.
