Unmanned Aircraft Surveying and Mapping

Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) give project teams the ability to capture high-quality data faster and cheaper than traditional manned fixed-wing or ground-based methods. Our surveying and mapping team implement the right technology and process data quickly to deliver accurate information that supports informed decision-making.

Resource Surveying and Mapping

Our experts collect and process aerial data, providing survey-grade orthomosaic and topographics maps for large areas faster and cheaper than traditional methods. Captured images have under 1-inch pixel resolution and 2-centimeter positional accuracy. We leverage this data for multiple applications and can quickly scale it to meet varying project requirements, such as generating stamped engineering designs for infrastructure projects.

Our team acquires multispectral drone imagery to identify target species and map vegetation classifications, so you can efficiently and cost-effectively manage long-term vegetation monitoring. Additionally, we use magnetometers to perform soil mapping, underground utility detection, and unexploded ordnance surveys, detecting metallic objects buried below ground with little to no impact on a site’s existing conditions.

Utility Infrastructure Surveying and Mapping

We support utility infrastructure inspections by using drone technology that reduces costs and increases speed and efficiency in problem detection and diagnosis. Our experts can provide:

  • LiDAR electric corridor mapping to generate PLS-CADD models of power line infrastrucure
  • Zoom imagery infrastructure mapping to gather details on conductors and other hardware
  • Delta-temperature infrared inspection to identify hot connections and calculate line sag

Construction Surveying and Mapping

We collects and process aerial RGB imagery and LiDAR data to provide actionable insights so you can monitor your construction projects over time. Our technology lets you:

  • Compare progress to the construction scheduling through daily flights
  • Report up-to-date information to stakeholders and field teams
  • Virtually visit the site through an as-built model using fused LiDAR and RGB data
  • Track material quantities through daily or weekly flights that gather detailed earthworks information
