Drones are an effective and affordable method for surveying large, inaccessible or hazardous areas.

We work with survey firms around the country to help make this easy.  AUAV can take care of the flying, licensing and insurances, keep up with the latest gear and manage the computers, software, data processing and QC. You get the data you need, without the risk or hassle.

With over 6 years of experience, AUAV is one of the country’s most experienced drone survey providers. We understand the importance of accurate deliverables and a service you can rely on to meet your own project deadlines. We’re happy to work behind the scenes to help get the job done and impress your clients.

For typical projects of 20 to 200 hectares we are on site for just a few hours, and will usually have the CAD/GIS products delivered in 24-72 hours.

We frequently cover sites up to 5000 hectares, using multiple crews to maintain a fast turnaround time.

By having surveyors on staff and processing our own data in-house, we can stand by the accuracy of our outputs. Standard accuracy is 50mm (horizontal and vertical), higher when needed, or we can adapt to lower requirements when appropriate to make large area survey even more affordable.

Our volume calculations have been verified to be within 1-3% of traditional survey methods.

Typical uses for UAV aerial survey:

  • Mine-Quarry volumetric survey
  • Bulk earthworks assessments and progress monitoring
  • Land development and subdivision planning
  • Road/rail route mapping and quantities
  • End of Month stockpile volume analysis
  • Drainage and flood investigations
  • Waterway erosion identification
  • Wetland and drainage infrastructure as built drawings
  • Irrigation design
