What Is A Drone Survey?

A drone survey refers to the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones, to conduct aerial surveys and mapping of an area. This technology allows for the collection of data and imagery from above, which can then be used to create detailed maps, 3D models, and other types of visual representations.

Drone surveys are often used in industries such as construction, agriculture, and environmental management, among others, to gather information about an area quickly and efficiently. The data collected from drone surveys can be used for a variety of purposes, including planning, monitoring, and analysis.

Drone surveys provide significant benefits in the construction industry by enabling real-time data collection and image capture, which can be used to create precise maps, 3D models, and measurements of a construction site. This allows for efficient site planning, progress tracking, and quality control.

Experience the Drone Difference

Amplifying Drone Survey Accuracy with Ground Control Points

Our commitment to precision in drone surveying is reflected in our strategic use of Ground Control Points (GCPs). These are physical, marked points on the ground, located in strategic positions within the survey area, whose exact coordinates are known and used as reference points during data processing.

GCPs play a pivotal role in enhancing the absolute accuracy of our drone surveys. By aligning the drone-captured images with actual, real-world GPS coordinates, GCPs ensure the maps and models generated truly mirror the survey location.

Our use of GCPs drastically reduces the margin of error, improving the accuracy of drone surveys in Bradford from a scale of meters to a phenomenal millimeters. This enhancement not only ensures precise data but also facilitates consistency across repeated surveys, particularly beneficial for projects requiring ongoing monitoring.

Our utilisation of GCPs is a testament to our innovative approach and dedication to quality, reinforcing our position as a leader in the UK drone survey industry.
