Drone surveys, (UAV surveys) have become an increasingly popular method of carrying out surveying projects.
One of the major advantages of drone surveys is the versatility it offers your project. Suitable across a range of our services, drones are effective for land surveys and offer an excellent option for inaccessible areas.

Another major benefit of a drone survey is the speed with which large areas can be surveyed. Capturing data can be quicker, safer and less intrusive than other means or in many cases, drones can be used as a complementary add-on service alongside more traditional surveying methods. We have recently combined a drone and hydrographical survey for a client as part of a quarry project in Peterborough.

Data from drone surveys is available in both 2D and 3D formats with a range of additional options available. This could include point cloud data, ortho-rectified photography and fly over video footage, all ensuring you receive a high level of technical detail to support your project. Our drone team is fully compliant with the Civil Aviation Authority regulations for Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems.

Drone surveys are ideal when working on developments such as quarries and landfill, traffic surveys, agricultural inspections, large scale mapping, and thermal imaging, as well as schemes where access may be restricted such as heritage projects.

Available across our network of UK offices, our teams of surveyors share many years’ experience and are in an ideal position to discuss your project in more detail and offer the best survey solution from our broad range of complementary services.

Drones Overview

  • Can capture data more quickly and more effectively than traditional methods.
  • Ideal solution for large land spaces and for inaccessible areas.
  • High level of technical data available including point clouds, flight imagery and videos.
  • Equally effective as a stand-alone survey or a complementary service.
  • Data available in a wide range of formats.
  • A safe and cost-efficient method minimising the amount of survey time on site.

Land Surveying Services

Measuring land under the water to establish a wide range of data including bed levels.

Measuring and recording the terrain, including roads, pylons, kerbs, service covers, boundary demarcations, fences and walls, with data available in both 2D and 3D formats.

An increasingly important tool for collecting large amounts of data quickly, cost-effectively and with minimal disruption, often in inaccessible locations.

Capturing data with a scanner attached to a vehicle, for situations which involve long distances or provide access challenges.

LiDAR technology creates a map of the ground profile, capturing measurements and ranges of large areas very quickly, with precision accuracy and without disturbing the environment.
