Aerial Thermal Mapping and Thermal Inspections

Affordable and Professional Aerial Data Solution, CASA Licensed and Certified Drone (RPA) Operators

Aerial Thermal Mapping and Thermal Inspection Services

Aerial thermal mapping using drones can deliver essential insights into the performance of critical assets such as commercial solar panel arrays, solar farms, industrial and commercial roof surfaces, vegetation areas, environmental areas and commercial crops.

Upload Enterprise delivers specialised thermal imaging services using enterprise grade radiometric thermal sensors like the DJI H20T, which can capture both thermal images and thermal video, to provide both relative and actual temperature readings even over very large areas. We also can deliver centimetre precision data so your team can go straight to the detected issue, every time.

What is Aerial Thermal Mapping ?

Drones equipped with thermal imaging technology can provide valuable information on the functioning of crucial assets, including but not limited to commercial solar panel arrays, solar farms, industrial and commercial roofs, vegetation areas, environmental zones, and commercial crops. This aerial mapping technique can offer essential insights into the performance of these assets.

What is a Thermal Inspection?

Drone thermal inspection involves using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with infrared sensors to detect temperature variations in various structures and systems. This method is used to identify issues such as water leaks, moisture damage, electrical faults, and thermal defects in roofs, solar panels, and other assets.

Drone thermal inspections are safer, faster, and more cost-effective than traditional methods, and they provide detailed, high-resolution thermal images that can be analyzed to assess the condition of assets and make informed decisions about maintenance and repair.

What are the benefits of Aerial Thermal Mapping and Thermal Inspection?

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 Aerial Thermal Mapping and Thermal Inspection?

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 Aerial Thermal Mapping and Thermal Inspection

Drone surveys, like traditional methods, tackle diverse tasks. Boundary marking, historical preservation, and legal documentation are common uses. Aerial thermal mapping and thermal inspection have numerous applications across various industries and sectors.
