Aerial Mapping Services

Aerial mapping using a drone is gaining in popularity for a wide range of applications. At Networx3 UAV we have both the right Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's) and the expertise to create 2D or 3D drone maps whatever the application, situation and now, whatever the weather with our new Sky Mantis drone.

Aerial mapping using drones is undertaken using photogrammetry, using a series of still photographs rather than moving video. Photogrammetry is the science of creating measurements from photographs, and the result is normally a map, 2D or 3D model of a building, structure or object. The process of creating the map or model is done using specialist software and accurate measurements of things like length, area and volume can be derived from the map or model.

There are numerous applications of aerial drone mapping. They include in the construction industry when assessing the progress of a development, or in the water industry when mapping and sizing a water reservoir. Aerial mapping with UAV's is also ideal when inspecting a solar farm where we can use aerial maps to spot any issues with the solar panels using infrared cameras.

Main advantages of aerial mapping using a drone:

  • Significant time savings are created using AUV's
  • Costs of planning and preparation time are reduced considerably
  • We can provide the exact footage and images the client requires

Our new Sky Mantis drone is the perfect tool to provide an aerial mapping service as it can operate in all-weather conditions including wind and rain, and still get great results. Fitted with mapping equipment, the Sky Mantis is a highly effective drone that can create internal or external maps of any structure or building.

The savings of time and effort, planning and preparation, to create these maps using drones, is huge compared to the human activity required for the same work.

In addition, we are unique in the UK in having our mobile ‘command centre’ where our customer can direct our pilot to fly the drone wherever they wish and view the flight live in real time. This gets great ‘first time’ results.

As part of our continual development and training, we can now offer Orthomosaic drone mapping at Networx3. What is it? In simple terms, an orthomosaic map is an accurate and detailed photo representation of a particular area. It is created by ‘stitching’ together and geometrically correcting a number of photos taken from a drone, so that it is as accurate as a map.
