Why Should You Use Drones?


“Drones are a buzz word in the survey sector, they’re an invaluable tool that clients often outsource. Instead of having boots on the ground, drones provide a highly cost efficient solution when collecting data on large sites.

We can also look at combining data sets from laser scanning and drone imaging to create a homogenous data set which provides a complete survey solution for clients”.

– Simon Judd, Precision Air Surveys.


“We had such large data sets that needed capturing, and it wasn’t possible with our manpower, so we turned to drones as a solution to allow us to take on far larger projects. The accuracy was also far better, to the point where it could decrease the number of surveying visits greatly, presenting a far more time efficient solution.

The repeatability was also a large draw, as projects which require longitudinal surveys, require incredibly accurate repetition over an extended time which drones provide”.

– Chris York, Buckingham Group ltd.
