Aerial Mapping

Aerial Mapping and Survey

Project Controls utilizes small efficient fixed wing single engine aircraft equipped with the latest camera hardware and software for our aerial mapping service.

We are able to provide an economical way of gathering the aerial data to the customer at a fraction of the price compared to traditional aerial mapping methods, allowing customers such as aggregate/gravel operators to excavation contractors the benefits of aerial mapping and survey that otherwise would have been cost prohibitive.

Data

Volume

Volume reports are created with the use of the point cloud information that provide accurate data and image of the stockpile or borrow site.

Digital Terrain and Surface Models

The DSM (Digital Surface Model) is a model of the mapped area that includes objects such as buildings. The DTM (Digital Terrain Model) is a model of the area after filtering out objects such as buildings and structures.

Orthomosaic

The orthomosaic is a 2D map. Each point contains X, Y and color information. The orthomosaic has uniform scale and can be used for 2D measurements (distance, surface). Orthomosaic uses

  • Asset Management
  • Up to date image analysis
  • Environmental Planning
  • Google Earth Overlay

Densified Point Cloud

The Densified Point Cloud is a set of 3D points that reconstruct the model. The X,Y,Z position and the color information is stored for each point of the Densified Point Cloud and provides a very accurate background for distance, surface and volume measurements.
