Our techniques

We are skilled at collecting, processing and visualising a range of geophysical techniques. This allows us flexibility in designing a survey strategy tailored to your needs and the site environment.

Aerial Photography and Videography

Aerial views provide unique, breath-taking perspectives, capturing assets, sites and landscapes as images, videos or photospheres. Perfect for reconnaissance surveys, settings assessments or promotional campaigns.

Aerial Reconnaissance

Incorporating aerial imaging during ‘walkover’ surveys extends the visual range of the surveyor, allowing reconnaissance to be carried out more safely and efficiently, with vastly more informative visual outputs.
