Bluesky has an experienced in-house team of skilled photogrammetrists, allowing us to undertake high-end mapping and data creation to detailed specifications. 

Topographic mapping and CAD/GIS in particular play a vital role in the decision-making processes in an ever-increasing sphere, in areas as diverse as transportation, urban planning, environment, resource management and health.  The users of topographic and CAD/GIS data are just as diverse as its many uses, including local and national government, emergency services, security, military, agriculture, forestry, utilities, telecommunications.

Products can range from topographic CAD drawings to richly attributed geodatabases populated with TINs, rasters and vector data with topological rules enforcing data integrity allowing for numerous complex analysis to be performed, producing outputs to help solve diverse geospatial queries. Your project can be delivered in a variety of different formats too, from AutoCAD (DWG) to the latest version of Civil 3D and specialist GIS formats. We can utilize your specific CAD template and build Civil surfaces, streamlining your workflow. Other formats include LandXML, SHP, SDF, DGN & DXF.

Bluesky’s experienced photogrammetrists, enable us to undertake high-end mapping and data creation to your own specifications created from up-to-date high resolution aerial photography. Even the photography can be flown to your own specification. 

Topographic Mapping

Using high resolution digital stereo aerial photography, our team can produce topographic mapping to a scale and specification commensurate with your project requirements. We can undertake updates to your in-house topographic maps commensurate with OS (and other) standards, or create high detail mapping up to 1:500 scale for engineering and infrastructure projects, dependent upon the availability and resolution of the base data required.

Further services include: -

Airport Mapping

  • We have specialists with many years of experience of the detailed mapping and surveying of airports, from small local airfields to international airports, they all require detailed mapping in order to maintain a high level of safety and adhere to both local and international legislation

Utilities & Asset Mapping

  • Accurate mapping of our utility networks is critical, and using a combination of aerial photography and LiDAR, Bluesky can create accurate maps that identify and locate some of our most important electricity, water and gas assets. Full PLS-CADD mapping can be undertaken, or clients can provide a bespoke specification for our team of experts to work to.

Land Use Mapping

  • Using our National aerial photography and Colour Infrared (CIR) imagery, we can undertake detailed analysis to identify specific land use and levels of land cover. Extracted information is provided as GIS ready layer, and we can undertake the mapping to either National Land Use Database (NLUD) specification or to a client supplied brief.
