Being able to use drones to capture up to date aerial imagery is a very useful asset when chronicling work on a ever changing worksite or landscape. In this latest post, we have two sites: One – an oxidation pond that was ground surveyed and mapped by drone to produce a high resolution up to date map correlated with a centermeter grade accuracy ground survey (RTK). With the combination of the two processed into a Geo-referenced map we are able to take accurate measurements anywhere on the site. In this case to work out the required amount of fill to extend the causeway over water (water depth known).
In this example, a map has been generated from aerial imagery without ground survey, with the main purpose being to visually track progress in weed control and native forest regeneration around Banks Peninsula. A cost effective way to track and monitor landscape changes from an aerial perspective with high detail versus outdated low resolution satellite imagery.
