Aerial Survey & Mapping

A core business at AUAV since 2013 has been the professional and reliable delivery of high-quality aerial mapping and survey data. With qualified surveyors on staff, we can stand behind the accuracy of this work.

Drones provide the ability to capture on-demand maps for a fraction of the cost of traditional approaches using manned aircraft, and at a much higher resolution than satellites or ground-based capture.

The resolution of our maps and survey data is usually between 1- 3cm per pixel (1-3cm GSD). We process the data to deliver full 3D terrain models (e.g. DSM, DTM) and the accuracy of the 3D data is generally around 50mm horizontal and 50-80mm vertical.

Our data capture methods include PPK or RTK enabled drones. We use the latest technology and operate a large fleet of powered-lift, fixed-wing and multi-rotor aircraft. Ground control is placed with professional Trimble GPS corrected to the Virtual Reference Networks.

Typical applications include;

  • Volumetric surveys for mines, quarries and landfills
  • Topographical surveys for infrastructure development
  • Data inputs to flood modelling
  • Coastal erosion monitoring
  • Subsidence and landslip analysis

In an increasingly digitised world, our drones provide the ability to easily and accurately capture your site to gain all the benefits of computer modelling and analysis for planning or monitoring your projects.
