Almost every industry has assets that require visual inspections to ascertain condition and performance. Utilising drones to undertake visual inspections is the safer choice for most situations. They help reduce risk when compared to conventional means, save on the need for the temporary or permanent structures and reduce downtime. The specialist cameras available for fitting to a drone allow for a a full, three-dimensional evaluation.

Aerial photographs are captured from above the ground to give a unique perspective.  The range of shots available is based on camera angle, position and field of view (FOV). All of which affect the outcome of each other. The position and angle are controlled by the drone/camera operator(s), and the field of view can be tailored using different lenses. Dependant on the project, there are a variety of drone and gimbal setups available to accommodate both micro four thirds cameras, and the bigger full frame DSLR cameras.

High specification camera equipment is mounted to an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to capture high resolution video. The footage is controlled by a pilot and camera operator for maximum precision. This enables the perfect shots to be captured, whether following a pre-agreed shot list, working film plan or being directed on-site. A variety of drone/gimbal setups allow the necessary camera to be mounted to tackle the required environment. The drone platform offers speed and agility as well as unique angles and perspectives for project. The equipment used can capture the data in RAW format when the highest quality is required.

2D Mapping and 3D Modelling

Outdoor spaces or objects can be accurately duplicated using aerial imagery. By adopting the process of photogrammetry, we can create 2D maps and 3D models. This process is based on camera location during photography. In aerial photogrammetry, the camera is mounted on a UAV (drone) to take multiple aerial shots along a pre-planned flight path. The photographs gathered and location information recorded can then be imported into sophisticated computer software to create an accurate copy of the intended area/object. The captured information can be used for multiple purposes. Dependant on the level of accuracy required by the client, several aspects of this process can be fine-tuned to gain a sub 2cm tolerance. The process is so efficient that it can be used for timelapse and relative real-time monitoring of a site.
