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.

Incorporating aerial imaging methods during ‘walkover’ surveys extends the visual range of the surveyor, allowing more information to be captured from angles that simply aren’t possible in a terrestrial visit. Areas that aren’t yet accessible on foot can also be surveyed over safely from the air.

This means surveys are not only more efficient, but the outputs are of a higher quality, including geotagged photos and video flythroughs. The results can lead to more informed decision-making in subsequent programme design, further saving time and costs by reducing the need for redeployments. This is particularly useful on large or complex schemes, or projects with specific time constraints and a need for detailed access planning.

Our techniques

Learn more about the techniques that we use.

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.

Photogrammetry

Uses high-resolution cameras to create accurate and detailed topographical maps, scaled plans and 3D models of assets, sites and landscapes for use in mapping, topographic survey, inspections and monitoring.

Electromagnetic Conductivity (EM)

Measures the ease of which current flow can be induced in material. Effective for detecting conductive features, such as geomorphology and subsurface landforms, ditches and earthworks.
