As defined by Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, Aerial Surveying is:
Aerial survey is a geomatics method of collecting information by using aerial photography, LiDAR or from remote sensing imagery using other bands of the electromagnetic spectrum, such as infrared, gamma, or ultraviolet. It can also refer to the chart or map made by analysing a region from the air. This is typically done using aeroplanes, helicopters, UAVs such as the InView Unmanned Aircraft System and in history with balloons. Aerial survey should be distinguished by satellite imagery technologies because of its better resolution, quality and atmospheric conditions. Today, aerial survey is often recognized as a synonym for aerophotogrammetry, part of photogrammetry where the camera is placed in the air. Measurements on aerial images are provided by photogrammetric technologies and methods.
We can provide Aerial Control surveying services and coordinate the resulting mapping into your project. Depending on the site, we may employ conventional land surveying techniques to locate the Aerial Control, or we may use GPS to do so.
If required, we can also provide:
- 3D Surface Creation.
- Field Editing.
- CAD and GIS Integration.
