UAV Aerial Survey

BCE Surveying offers aerial survey services using UAVs or drones. This allows surveying work to be without disrupting the work occurring at ground level.  To ensure an accurate UAV aerial survey BCE has a created a comprehensive suite of 3D model and close-range imagery products. This allows BCE to aerially survey small areas while providing geo referenced, high-resolution imagery.

Our roto-copter UAV is lightweight and easily transportable and is useful for the surveying of difficult to enter work sites and inspecting environmentally sensitive areas or even hazardous areas. Aerial data can be captured and then reproduced to show the progress and changes of a site.  

Why Do a UAV Aerial Survey?

  • Track progress of projects over time.
  • Capture a large amount of data of complex and large projects in a short period of time.
  • Collect surveying data while not disrupting work processes on the ground.
  • Cost effectiveness.
