Drones are an efficient method for evaluating the abundance and distribution of flora and fauna compared to traditional methods of conducting surveys on foot, 4WD, manned aircraft or boat.
Aerial Surveying of previously non-surveyed landforms
Identifying changes to river banks, cliffs and beaches.
By mapping and modelling the changing morphology of waterways and tailings dams, UAVs can provide accurate volumes, highlight potential blockages, levels of degradation and erosion and likely causes of failure. They provide a fast overall assessment of environmental damage.
Flood damage assessments and flood escape route planning
Environmental data captured by drones can be integrated into GIS databases and then used for post-disaster assessments and reconstruction/rehabilitation estimations.
Freshwater ecosystem monitoring, stream assessment
Monitoring weeds and pests in national parks and waterways
Monitoring erosion and other forms of environmental degradation
The combination of high resolution multi-spectral and infra-red photography and computer software can show the general health of plants, detect water and nutritional stress and monitor insect damage. Comparable geotagged drone imagery enables a specific site, area or natural object’s evolution over time to be photographed and measured or in fine detail.
Because drone flight plans are based on GPS positions, they can be repeated on a regular basis for purposes of comparison, analysis, planning and evidence-based action plans.
Non-visible spectrum cameras enable us to assess the vigour and health of plants and vegetation, determine soil characteristics, estimate biomass and carbon content.
Assessing changes to wetlands, saltpans and areas of dieback
Identification of areas of short dumping and illicit discharges
Inspection of water reservoirs, dams, water pipes and sewer lines
Quantifying juvenile fish densities in shallow coastal waters
Our drone Survey Services offer an accurate aerial data capture and post processing service that is productive, safe and cost effective.
