Aerial surveys and inspections have become increasingly popular in recent years, thanks to the development of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), commonly referred to as drones. These aircraft are equipped with high-definition cameras that can capture images and video footage from all angles, providing a bird’s eye view of the terrain and structures such as buildings or power lines.
The use of drones for aerial surveys and inspections has several advantages. Firstly, they are typically much faster and more cost-effective than traditional manned aircraft. They can also reach areas that would be difficult or impossible for humans to access, such as tall buildings or remote terrain. Additionally, drones can capture data at a higher resolution and accuracy level than traditional methods, enabling greater detail and insights to be gained.
These systems are used across a range of industries including construction, utilities, agriculture, and even wildlife conservation. For example, a utility company might use drones to inspect power lines and identify any faults or damage, whereas a construction firm might take aerial surveys to track progress and monitor site safety. Furthermore, wildlife conservationists can use drones to monitor habitats and track animal populations.
Andrew came to survey a recently fitted conservatory roof that continually leaks. He arrived promptly and did a thorough survey, taking photos and explaining everything to me. I found him very pleasant, thorough and knowledgeable and received his detailed report within the time he stated. I would certainly recommend Andrew to anyone needing a Surveyor.
