Surveying and Mapping with DJI M300 RTK  ZP1 or DJI Z L2 LIDAR

DJI M300 with P1 cmaera for survey work victoria bc


 Since 2013 VAP has the right drone solutions for your business.

 As of 2024 we employ the new DJI Z L2 LiDAR and partner with BCLS  


 Using RTK (Real Time Kinematics) and the new ZP1 45 MP full framed survey camera payload, 3 cm accuracy can be achieved without GCP corrections! 

Reliability is key. Precision and quality control for orthomosaics and land survey mapping is extremely high. Quality deliverables cannot be achieved with typical smaller consumer grade drones. See video below... (DJI Mavics/Phantoms/Minis/ Airs and so on). 



Our M300 RTK with ZP1 survey camera and/or LIDAR payloads achieve superior results! Our RPAS survey data acquisition has received great reviews from clients such as BCLS crews and engineers.


Who we work with?

► VAP works with qualified BC Land surveyors, government officials, land developers and engineers who benefit from drone data. Our hardware systems are continually proving to be powerful tools, simultaneously providing leaps in efficiency and safety. 




► What is a drone survey? 

A drone survey is mostly an autonomous, computer controlled flight in which a survey conducted from overhead using a drone (RPAS).

RTK RPAS Surveying is the new precise science of determining the positions of, and the distances between, points in 2D and 3D space.

More examples:

►  When surveying challenging terrain, drones make it unnecessary for human operators to physically access and measure points in hazardous or difficult-to-reach locations.

►  Additionally, while traditional surveying methods require meticulous measurement, preparation, and planning, the right M300/P1 RPAS flown skillfully, can capture comparable CM accurate data in dramatically shorter time frames. 

  Using our drone services with the RTK M300 with ZP1 produces quality results quickly, and adds to profitably/low cost! 


► What kinds of deliverables can you achieve with drone surveying? 

With our PRO grade Sensors and surveying software, P1surveying can produce Orthomosaics, Contour DXF (AutoCAD), RAW Elevation Value (DEM) 3D Models, LAX Files, Point Clouds, Contour SHP (Shapefiles),  Stockpile Analysis, and a host other supported exports formats, layers and many other files types by request. Possibilities are endless!
