UAVs (unmanned Aerial Vehicles) offer an exceptionally cost effective method of performing detailed and accurate aerial surveys of small areas. Often budgets do not allow for the deployment of a full survey system over a target area; UAVs offer an ideal solution.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (otherwise known as UAS or Drones) are often associated with covert military reconnaissance during combat. This technology is now beginning to be adopted for more peaceful and commercial activities such as aerial survey. Using this technology Bluesky can survey small areas (up to 5 sq km) frequently and accurately for a fraction of the time and cost.
Using the latest, most innovative UAV technology, Bluesky are able to offer up-to-date, on demand, accurate digital stereo aerial photography. Using a UAV we overcome the issues associated with traditional aircraft to produce a more flexible and cost effective solution. The resulting imagery is in stereo and is accurate, allowing for traditional photogrammetric uses such as DTM and 3D modelling.
We can produce fully orthorectified, high resolution data that can easily be integrated into any GIS ready for mapping and analysis or can be simply viewed in a variety of off the shelf software. We can map and analyse the data for you as a complete solution. There is even an option to produce Colour Infrared Imagery for crop monitoring.
