Drone Mapping & Pit Plans for Your Business

Drone mapping is a beneficial tool for GIS data acquisition. With drones, it is possible to get highly accurate measurements in a fraction of the time. It can reduce the cost of having to use a site surveyor and other specialists on site.

We offer a variety of deliverables in all the industry standard file formats. Orthomosaic maps are detailed maps that show an accurate photo representation of the area. Many photos are stitched together and geometrically corrected in order to make an efficient map. DSM maps give an accurate look at the surface of the ground for elevation modeling.

We use GNSS receivers and ground control points to provide geo-referencing to our drone maps. These ground control points are matched up with the coordinate system. As a result, the GCPs create accurate georeferenced maps and 3D models.
