UAV imaging is becoming increasingly more common, which is not surprising due to its cost-effective nature.

UAV’s are reasonably inexpensive and it is common for organisations to use a fleet of UAVs to capture rapid surveys over large areas of land and large scale infrastructure projects.

So what is UAV aerial mapping, and how could it help you or your business?


What is UAV aerial mapping?


UAV stands for an unmanned aerial vehicle, that has the ability to collect accurate and detailed data for concentrated areas in a cost-effective way, within a fast time frame.

Automatic fast data processing makes for the fast delivery of results – creating an efficient solution for a wide range of scenarios. You may have seen them in use for forest fires, flood damage and storms. All situations where time is critical, decisions have to be made and measures have to be implemented.

Speed and cost aren’t the only advantages of UAV over traditional aerial imagery, the compact and lightweight dimensions make UAVs highly transportable.


Uses for UAV aerial mapping


UAV technology is incredibly useful for many kinds of projects. There is a wide range of UAV applications suitable for surveying objects and ground with orthographic photos with volume calculations, digital height and 3D models. Furthermore, monitoring of conditions, target analysis and documentation are made easy with UAV systems.

On the side of photography and videography, aerial photography used for advertising, products, real estate and landscape pictures. Plus, you’ll have probably seen UAV’s in action for aerial filming in movies, expedition video and documentary photography too.

UAV aerial mapping is fast becoming the norm in 2019, and they promise optimum results that are tailored to the needs of all kinds of projects.
