What is a Drone Mapping?

Drone mapping has revolutionized aerial surveying and data analysis, providing detailed insights quickly across industries. Equipped with high-resolution cameras and GPS systems, our specialty survey drones can efficiently capture images and topographical data for your infrastructure and property needs.

Our advanced drone systems are designed specifically for in-depth mapping missions. They can reach any terrain or location easily, photographing from optimized aerial angles. This enables the collection of extensive overlapping visual coverage not possible manually.

What is a Drone Survey?

A drone survey is the use of drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with RGB cameras, multispectral cameras,  payloads to collect data. And then this data is transmitted to special equipment on the ground near the UAV operator. The end result of drone land surveying is a finished map of detail at a given scale, presented in digital format.

Surveying drones can fly at much lower altitudes than traditional techniques like manned aircraft or satellites, providing high-resolution, high-precision images faster and cheaper, and independent of weather conditions such as cloud cover.

What are the benefits of Drone Surveying and Aerial Mapping?

Even the most novice user knows that drones can be used for photography. The availability of unmanned aerial photography has led to its use in many sectors and produced incredible images. But is it good enough for your next mapping or surveying job? Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of using drones for mapping and surveying.

Save time and money

The economic advantage of drone land surveying comes primarily from its low operating costs compared to its main competitors, airplanes, and helicopters, which are up to 10 times more expensive than drone topography. Besides, recent studies show drone surveying is up to five times faster than traditional land-based methods.

Provide high data accuracy

Drones have extremely high accuracy, with aerial mapping reaching centimeter-level accuracy and mapping accuracy generally reaching 1:1000. In addition, aerial mapping also has a wealth of 3D geographic information, which can capture the data of large-scale terrain.

Map inaccessible places safer

Drone topographic survey allows us to obtain extensive and reliable data from inaccessible locations, unsafe steep slopes, or hazardous terrain. This means that surveyors can create a 3D computer model of the object under study and take a series of measurements in the office, without necessarily needing to be in the field or in a hazardous area to obtain data.

Why use Drone Surveying and Aerial Mapping?

Drones can acquire data from vantage points that are not accessible to humans, especially those areas with challenging terrains. There is no need for human operators to measure points in hazardous locations physically, rather the drone can fly over an area, capturing the same amount of data in a shorter time frame.

For the best drones for land surveying, Upload Enterprise Drones provides a comprehensive drone surveying solution, which has released drones that can carry different functions according to the different needs of users.

Provide Accurate And Reliable Data

Drones capture vast survey data on big projects fast, ideal for measuring and reporting. One flight generates thousands of 3D measurements, easily shown as maps, models, and more.

Ability To Map Inaccessible Areas

Aerial mapping drones are limitless. They can fly almost anywhere – unreachable areas, unsafe steep slopes, or harsh terrain unsuitable for traditional measuring methods.

Safely Track The Progress Of Your Project

Drones give you the ability to monitor the progress of your project from a distance. This is a big step towards a more efficient and safer monitoring process.

Application of Drone Mapping and Surveying

Drone surveys, like traditional methods, tackle diverse tasks. Boundary marking, historical preservation, and legal documentation are common uses. They also guide construction projects by pinpointing locations and shaping land for buildings, roads, and more.
  • Geo-referenced orthophotography.
  • Environmental and coastal monitoring.

Frequently Asked Questions

Depends on your budget and needs! Popular choices include:

Entry-level: DJI Phantom 4 RTK, Autel EVO II Pro RTK V3 (affordable, accurate)
Mid-range: DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise (compact, high-res), Yuneec H520 RTK (rugged, thermal option)
High-end: DJI Matrice 350 RTK (heavy-duty), WingtraOne GEN II (fixed-wing, long flight), AgEagle eBee X (autonomous, large areas)

Accuracy depends on several factors, including drone model, sensors, flight planning, and post-processing techniques. Most professional drones with Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) technology can achieve centimeter-level accuracy. However, basic GPS-based drones may only reach meter-level accuracy.

Our standard deliverables include:

  • High-resolution imagery
  • Surface/terrain models with contours.
  • Other deliverables include 3D reality modelling for digitising as-built assets.
