Whether a drone LiDAR survey or mapping via a manned-helicopter, the required survey data can be collected accurately, efficiently and without the need for personnel to set foot in potentially hazardous environments. This is especially useful when measuring stockpile volumes on active sites, surveying steep or inaccessible terrain, or mapping roads, rail, watercourses and coastlines.
The data we obtain through the aerial mapping process can take various forms or formats, depending on what our clients require. These formats include:
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.
