Drone Photography for Land Surveying

Drone photography for land surveying

Drone photography is one of the best options for getting accurate and clear photos using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). UAVs are able to get photographic images of landscapes that might otherwise be impossible for human photographers to capture.

The experts at Apex Aerial Photo and Video use the Phantom Pro and Inspire 2 drones in aerial photography projects from Da-Jiang Innovations (DJI), the world's leader in creating and marketing consumer unmanned aerial vehicles, to ensure your drone photography project is the best quality on the market. You can rely on us to capture crisp 20.8 MP photos and 4K/5.2K cinematography for your drone photography project.

Because of the high quality drone imaging available for drone photography, this option is great for land mapping and land surveying.

Land Surveying

Land surveying is the science of determining the position of points on a surface of earth and measuring the distance, directions, angles, and elevations between them. Oftentimes, land surveying is used to establish boundaries on pieces of land. It also helps developers to know the proper borders of a land piece to prevent them from building on neighboring land.

More importantly, a land survey will determine if a developer can develop a certain piece of land effectively by showing the topography of that land.

There are multiple different types of land surveys, including:

  • Construction
  • Boundary/Land
  • Geodetic

There are three main steps in land surveying: measuring the land, marking the boundary lines within ownership parameters, and assessing the historical records of the land, including surrounding lands.

Why Choose Drone Photography?

Land Surveying is an extensive project that can take anywhere between days and weeks to complete depending on the project. One of the biggest benefits of utilizing drone photography is that it cuts that time down to days.

Aerial photography is a great way to get a clear, high resolution map of the land. During a land surveying project, the experts at Apex Aerial Photo and Video photograph the land from several different angles and tag each image with coordinates. From this data, photogrammetry software can create geo-referenced orthomosaics, elevation models, or 3D models of the project area. These maps can also extract information such as highly-accurate distances or volumetric measurements.

Drone photography is a great way to get highly-accurate information without breaking the bank or cutting into project time. Our aerial photography pilot has over 12 years of experience developing and flying UAVs as well as 3 years of experience flying full scale aircrafts as an FAA licensed private pilot. No matter what drone photography project you need completed, we're ready to help.
