Drone Topographic Mapping Fills the Efficiency Gap

Does your project success depend on accurate ground characteristics? Professional engineering quality topographic maps reduce risk and uncertainty by accurately depicting slopes, undulations, water flow and hazards necessary to design and planning. Drones supplement ground crews and replace manned aircraft, reducing time and cutting costs of producing topographic maps.

Benefits of professional drone topographic surveys:

  • Efficient: Fills the gap between ground-based surveying and manned aircraft surveying
  • Fast: Reduce mapping time from weeks to days by collecting millions of data points in one brief flight
  • Accurate Georeferenced Data: Acquire latitude, longitude and elevation (x, y and z) data accurate to within +/- 6-7 cm (+/-2.5 in)
  • Orthomosaic Image: Obtain high resolution true color aerial photograph of entire project area during same flights
  • Safe: Keep staff at safe distances from dangerous areas
  • Affordable: Costs a fraction of manned aircraft surveys and less time than ground-based surveys
  • Reliable: Rely on integrated data from our FAA licensed UAV pilots and registered surveyors who have decades of precision surveying experience
  • Flexible Data Formats: Data delivered in any CAD, non-CAD, 2D and/or 3D format you require

Our professional land surveyors deliver contour maps you can trust.

High-resolution aerial maps make resource and logistical planning faster and more accurate because everyone associated with the project has the same, clear visual of the project site.

Bare earth models (also known as digital terrain models or DTMs) can be created with specialized software to eliminate vegetation, vehicles, buildings and other objects that extrude above the terrain height.
