Recon is at the forefront of UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) or drone technology, for aerial mapping a wide variety of landforms, offering hundreds of hours of experience utilising this fast, cost-effective data capture technology. Our comprehensive UAV mapping service provides full consultative service for clients; assessing survey requirements, planning flight missions, operating our fleet of UAVs and obtaining and delivering required data to clients quickly and efficiently.
The required survey data can be collected without the need for any personnel to set foot in a potentially hazardous environment. This is especially useful when measuring stockpile volumes on active sites, surveying steep or inaccessible terrain, or mapping 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.
