Our Drone Mapping Services

Refract Media has clients across many industries, including commercial, residential, and industrial clients. We’ve been providing drone services, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles
(UAVs), for a long time and are confident our services will give our clients exactly what they
need.

What is Drone Mapping?

Drone mapping, or drone surveying, is essentially a method of data collection using aerial images gathered through repeated drone flights. Drones allow land surveying on a whole new level and can give much more detail than conventional methods, like satellite and ground surveying.
When we use drone mapping to survey areas of interest, we take many aerial images and adjust and collate them into a single large image through a process called orthomosaic imaging. We can also extract the 3D information from these images, creating a 3D model of the area through a process called photogrammetry.
The drone flies in a specific pattern to ensure that everything in the area of interest is photographed. These photographs must overlap to ensure that the software can recognize common features called ‘tie points’. The geotagged images are then compiled into one image.

When are Drone Surveying Services Used?

Drone mapping is requested by many of our clients across different industries. It can be used for many purposes, including
  • Measuring material availability, which can be useful for mining and aggregate professionals
  • Cut and fill measurements for contractors looking to calculate how much earth is being removed
  • Progress tracking to see your project at every stage
  • Creating 3D site models
  • Improving scheduling and efficiency
  • Producing topographical surveys of areas of interest
  • Visualizing projects
  • Improving worksite safety by travelling over hazardous terrain and calculating measurements like height and slope
  • Creating a library of company sites
  • Surveying land for potential sites
  • For use by 3D artists
