Our aerial surveys can be undertaken for multiple reasons with varying benefits. These include ease of access to hard to reach areas, without the need for extensive health and safety equipment in order to do so. This can result in lower costs as there are reduced works taken before site visit required. Site visits are often reduced in length as more ground can be covered in a quicker manner depending on the type of survey required.
Orthomosaics can be overlaid over Google maps and therefore can be useful in the analysis of areas and their development. This could be using historic maps for a longer historical development or during the development of a singular building site.
Drone undertaken aerial inspections have become the go-to method across all industry sectors that require a visual survey from possibly difficult to access areas. The process of using a drone to collect visual data enables conditions of assets to be assessed without the need for tricky accessibility routes or putting anyone at harm. For example, instead of having to access a roof structure to assess why it may be leaking, a d drone can be piloted instead. Cloudcam UAV use the latest in drone technology in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV or drones) to access the most difficult and hard to reach sites and buildings to provide a varying range of aerial inspection services:
Point Cloud (las, xyz) are model files which can be processed into Revit, and other 3D modelling packages to create detailed elevations and floor plans. This process can also be used to create topographical surveys. All collated information can be used for a variety of functions including the refurbishment of properties, planning permission submissions as well as a general detailed analysis.
This detailed method of recording the asset can be used within 3D drawing packages.
Contour / Depth Surface Models
Cloudcam can convert the 3D model and point cloud data into comparable contour drawings and depth surface models with instantaneous volume calculations. This can allow you to identify a change in volume quantities of a small stock pile or assist in the calculations relevant to tracking coastal erosion and its impact on beach levels.
