It's the safest, fastest and cheapest method to gain information about an area which is difficult to access. We allow you to get the bird's eye view, its particularly useful in towns and cities where space is restricted.
3. How accurate is your drone survey?
we can gather data very close to the roff or structure using the telecom lens of the drone we can see small details, that the surveyor needs for writing their reports to the client, as far as drone photogrammetry accuracy can be as small as 20mm, however this really depends on the size of the building and information required.
4. What image quality can I expect?
We use high end a 12MP (4000 x 3000 resolution as standard image size, however we can also capture a 48MP image from the same sensor) for the video we capture in either HD 1920 x 1080 resolution or 4K (3840×2160 ) also 2.7K: 2688×1512 at various frame rates.
