Aerial Videography and Photography
Visual inspections can be in the format of either aerial videos or aerial photos. The drone will be flown either manually or automatically over an area, creating imagery along its way. This can be delivered as a video, photos, or can be shown live on screen when on site. This is perfect if you want to check for border security, identify cracks or leaks, inspect infrastructure or monitor progress of a project, etc. By using a Perspective Media drone service, you will be able to clearly and easily see your point of interest, significantly reduce man power and save time, effort and money.
3D Interactive Models
Our modelling service provides invaluable aerial data to industries, such as creating 3D models of cities, construction sites, agriculture, mining, forestry, etc. The 3D models can be seen on a computer or through VR goggles. Compatible with CAD/REVIT. Able to be exported in the following formats: 3D Model (.obj, .las, .xyz) and PointCloud.
The 3D model service uses photogrammetry; the science of making measurements from photographs. By taking anything up to 2,000 images (3 acres requires approximately 500 photos), a realistic model is produced which is great for allowing the client of a multi-million pound project to be able to interact with the progress of the construction.
Aerial surveys are being used increasingly more by consumers as it is easier, safer and faster to use a drone rather than physical manpower. Drone surveys are accurate to within 1 metre (or 1cm, depending on the type of survey) and have the massive potential to save companies money. They are much more efficient than traditional surveying techniques.
A 2D Map service could simply be a bird’s eye view shot or multiple images stitched together, all images taken with 20MP quality. We can then measure lengths, areas and volumes of any portion of the map. This is accurate to within 1 metre. Able to be exported in the following formats: Orthomosaic: GeoTIFF, JPG or PDF.
Elevation & Contour Surveys
By utilising the DroneDeploy software (based in California, USA), we pre-program the area to be surveyed. The drone then gets airborne and flies the pre-programmed route taking photos and surveys the area as is travels. Elevation maps within DroneDeploy are created using standard geo-referenced information embedded into our drone photogrammetry. This is perfect if you want to check for cracks in roads, pavements, taxiways or runways. A massive advantage of these aerial surveys is you can monitor the change in surface health by identify cracks forming and surfaces sinking or rising; meaning you can be pro-active, and not reactive. Great for saving considerable sums of money per annum.
We can clearly identify which crops are healthy and which are unhealthy. Then, we can work out its volume, thus allowing the farmer to know which crops need to be replaced in order to maximise revenue. Rather than using man power, taking hours, or even days, to visually inspect the crops, this can be done in a matter of minutes. A drone survey also saves on time, effort, money and does not damage the crops by walking around the land.
We identify what the client would like to see on the roof or chimney, then fly the drone around the structure. We can take either videos or photos to give to the client so they can identify the damage and thus what work needs to be done. Alternatively, we can show this roof live on a screen and follow the directions of the client to move the drone up or down, left or right, until they are satisfied that they have enough information about the roof or chimney for that specific job.
