The Recon team offers significant experience in the fields of surveying, mapping and 3D capture. Surveying provides the basis of accurately capturing and collating spatial data from one or more sources. Accurate and current spatial data enables professionals to make informed and intelligent decisions, reducing risk and allowing improved project design and forecasting.
Recon's survey consultants are trained and experienced in construction and civil surveying. This means Recon can be your surveying partner from a project‘s conception right through to set out and as-built.
Highly accurate, portable and robust 3D laser scanning technology is an efficient alternative to traditional survey capture where a large amount of detail is required.
Recon is at the forefront of UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle), or drone, technology for the aerial surveying and mapping of a wide variety of landforms, offering hundreds of hours of experience utilising this fast, cost-effective data capture technology.
Recon’s machine level systems provide survey accurate, variable depth, asphalt paving and milling level control. Used on a range of high profile projects throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region the system can be fitted to any asphalt paver or milling machine to control levels to survey accurate, millimetre tolerances.
Recon staff come from a
variety of backgrounds, from surveying and aerial mapping, to manufacturing and
3D design. Recon has worked with companies such as Kiwirail and NZ Steel on a wide range of projects.
Recon’s UAV fleet is operated by trained pilots with significant flying and data collection experience. Our team operate both fixed-wing and multi-rotor UAVs and ensure the quick dissemination of data to clients.
Recon offers a wide range of
3D scanning hardware and software as well as offering the very latest in
unmanned aerial systems for sale.
We also offer extensive training alongside all hardware and software sales.
UAV technology has developed rapidly within the last few years, fast becoming seen as a cost-effective method of quickly and accurately surveying, mapping and monitoring landforms and watercourses. Recon operates C-Astral UAVs, providing local expertise, training and support.
Recon supports a wide range of FARO equipment, with the Focus3D model line boasting world class accuracy, long-range scanning abilities, compactness, impressive scanning speeds and ease-of-use through intuitive touchscreen menus.
Along with a wide range of FARO 3D Scanning software, Recon is the New Zealand agent for Agisoft Photoscan, a powerful and user friendly photogrammetry package.
New Zealand Steel has been utilising Recon’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) mapping technology to accurately measure stockpile volumes on a regular basis at its Waikato North Head mine site. The technology has resulted in faster data acquisition turn-around times, as well as the elimination of survey staff from within potentially hazardous environments at the mines.
