UAV/Drone Remote Sensing

Use Unmanned Aircraft Sytems to monitor progress on your construction site, obtain accurate surveys and Orthomosaics. Using Ground Control Points, GPS and computer technology we now can achieve survey grade maps. Below is the McKenzie Interchange project in Saanich, BC

VAP in cooperation with a certified British Columbia Land Surveyor we work with to assist in achieve great results for our customers.

There’s a lot to keep track of on your job site — project progress, the location of equipment, the volume of materials left — and an aerial view makes it all a lot easier. 

You may also monitor site safety issues. Our UAV multi-rotor and expert pilot makes Remote Sensing more simple and in less time.

Analytics by Drone?  Aquire rich, high resolution topographic mapping, generating current and accurate 2D/3D models and their associated high resolution imagery.

From aquiered datasets we can provide critical information for detailed engineering design, drainage analyses, and volumetrics for a variety of engineering applications in land development and management.

Next Generation Features for Aerial Mapping

Complex Data Collection. Simplified. Better Data in way less time.  Instant Inspection Analysis.

Whether you’re doing inspections with a UAV a new building or investigating an insurance claim, it’s important to capture accurate data quickly.

See how to use the elevation toolbox from drone maps here

Drone mapping is a powerful new tool for inspection — allowing you to safely and easily capture a high-resolution aerial view and orthomosaics of a site in minutes.

The UAV Helps Verify Earthwork at Hospital Construction Site. See Case Study

Back in the office, or out in the field, it’s easy to analyze high-fidelity reconstructions of sites, make measurements and share comments to help you make better and faster decisions.

UAV survey by aircraft for mapping

Accurate topographic modelling, with DSMs and DTMs. We are now partnering with Drone Deploy https://www.dronedeploy.com/construction.html

Customers can also use Drone-Generated 3D models to compare actual earthwork to site plans, estimate digs, tactics, work specifics, equipment requirements and more.
