Waterways and Coastal Sector

Drones are proven to provide a simple and cost-effective way of monitoring the stability of a coastline, river or erosion protection structures.

With experienced waterway scientists on staff we understand the requirements of the data capture for analysis.

The aerial data captured by the drone is processed into a range of formats depending on the end-use of the data; from orthomosaic imagery in visible and near infra-red for vegetation and change assessments, through to full survey accurate 3D elevation models which are quick and easy to use for inspections and monitoring.
