Aerial Mapping

Aerial mapping is used for various applications, from determining precise geographical locations to land classification. In the past, arranging an aerial map or survey was costly because of the equipment and organisation required. Now, drones provide a revolutionary new way to conduct aerial mapping. There’s no need for a manned aircraft or satellite; a drone can provide all the information you need.

Aerial Mapping Applications

Aerial mapping can be used in all sorts of ways to get a bigger or clearer picture of a landscape, building or plot. For construction, aerial mapping is a great way to show clients the progress of a building – while surveyors can use the data from a drone flight for cartography, topography and more.

Here are some of the ways in which drone aerial mapping can be used:

  • Land and infrastructure surveying for urban and regional development
  • Remote working for mines, gravel pits and construction sites
  • Digital terrain modelling (DTM), digital elevation modelling (DEM) and volumetric analysis
  • Embankment, dam and retaining wall inspection
  • Archaeological surveys and excavation monitoring
  • Geo information system (GIS)

Drone Aerial Mapping from Droneworxs

Droneworxs specialist drones have the ability to conduct oblique photography, 3D modelling, digital terrain modelling and more – so whatever your requirements or goals for aerial mapping are, we have you covered.

For every aerial mapping project we conduct a safety analysis prior to the flight, and throughout the entire process we work with you to ensure everything you need is covered and all the information is obtained. Our pilots control the drone from a nearby location with the relevant parties present to allow for additional data recording and analysis.

Drone Mapping Services: What are they? 

Why use drones for mapping It’s the 21st century, and drones are a thing. UAVs have taken over and have been put to use in different spheres of our day to day life including parcel delivery, media briefing, and event coverage. This has given way to the creation of software which can do more than the ordinary, one of which is the 3D mapping software. This software is used to create stunning 3D models of buildings, objects, and surroundings. They work perfectly with elevation models and capturing orthographic photos. 3D Mapping software utilizes a tech that takes out the guesswork from data analysis which would save you not only time but also money which would have been spent on carrying out surveys. Drone mapping and photogrammetry Ever heard the word photogrammetry? Yes, it’s not your Standard English word, but it does mean something to drone hobbyists and companies offering drone mapping services. Drone mapping services are carried out using a technique aptly called ‘Photogrammetry.’ As you would expect, this word means taking measurements using photographs. Photogrammetry produces an output which is like a map or a 3D representation of an environment, a scene or an object. So that you know, […]

Drone and Aerial Mapping, an inseparable duo

Once upon a time, drones used to be just that remote-controlled aircraft that didn’t have much use or relevance. However, times have changed, and tides have turned. This simple but effective aerial vehicle has fought its way to reckoning. For some, especially those who do not know it’s worth or how drones can be deployed and employed, drones are luxuries. However, to a more significant number of people, especially those who have applied it in photography or aerial mapping, it is a necessity. Imagine a photographer or cameraman who is entrusted with the task of viewing an object from a very tall height. That’s a huge task, isn’t it? Not to worry because, with drones, you wouldn’t have to break a sweat. Drone and its increasing use of aerial mapping Aerial mapping is just another name for surveying. As explained earlier, drones help us to cover a distance that would ordinarily be more difficult without them. They help us to reach a trajectory we wouldn’t have been able to reach and most importantly, they also help us to appreciate the beauty of nature more and more. However, despite the superlatives, not all drones are suitable for this purpose. Just as […]
