Drone Services

Start here for a quick video capabilities overview.

Lot Boundary Lines

If you're attempting to convey the view surrounding a marsh, river, creek, ocean, or lake, there is simply not better way to define the space or area than through the use of a drone.  Users quickly identify which area of land is being referred to and obtaining the approximate  dimensions of the surroundings.

This also applies for large acreages or lots.  The drone is able to not only see the entire lot, but also the surroundings.  If you need hyperaccurate visuals for a particular lot as well, just as for an orthographic map.  Detailed photos will be reproduced down to 0.3in / pixel.  For reference Google Earth / Maps is 15 Meters / Pixel!

Orthographic Survey

2D Mapping

New technology and software has become the driving force in today's development and construction industry.  With dedicated drone overflight of land and acreage, we now have the capability of providing 2D Orthographic maps in near real time capability. 

With the added benefit of GPS technology and accuracy, we also have the capacity to calculate area computations, straight line distance, and volumetric analysis.  For even greater accuracy, Ground Control Points can be added to reflect 100% survey grade mapping.  All of this is done at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional satellite or aircraft overflight.

Because this is data is cloud based, you may also share the information with any stakeholder and include pertinent annotations and data sets.

Carolina Park Elevation Survey


Through photogrammetry, elevation calculations are possible allowing users to determine nearest tree height, structure height, antenna and power line requirements, and even lake bed and stormwater run off requirements.

Roof Inspection

Storm damage?  Lost a shingle?  Want to know the condition of a roof or find that troublesome leak? Can't see the HVAC Unit?

A quick flight over the house can reveal any number of issues that might go unnoticed.  From the condition of the chimney, to assessing the damage from a storm, or just getting a quick overview before purchasing a home, we're able to document the condition of the roof quickly and safely.

And to cover the what if scenarios, you'll feel secure knowing we carry liability insurance just in case.

Photogrammetry is the calculation of distances and elevation through the use of photos.  By flying the drone overhead in specific patterns and stitching the photos together, software algorithms are capable of providing 3D models of the captured environment.

Not only will you have the ability to see how far away an object is, but if you'd like to know the elevation along a straight line, it's all in the data.  Want to calculate the storm water run off pond volume?  Not a problem.  Scope and size of aggregate required for development?  Not a problem.  Volume calculations are now performed in a fraction of the time it once took ground based surveyors.

Want to share it with a coworker?  Not a problem.  All annotations, volumes, notes, and other pertinent markings are easily shared with other stakeholders.
