Ground Modelling

Another area of UAV surveying is the ability to provide data to enable parcels of land to be accurately modelled from the air without site access restrictions.

From a completed flight over a particular parcel of land, the data recorded can be processed to provide a topographical survey with images of the site. Relief of the ground can be obtained easily and models produced can be colour rendered to show general ground heights.

Mounds or depressions are shown using various colour processes and volume calculations can be provided from the model. High resolution colour photographs are also provided to capture material and ground types for inspection purposes.

This method of data capture/cad modelling is becoming very popular. Please contact Survey Operations to discuss your requirements.

Ground Modelling Surveys

Ground modelling surveys, also known as digital terrain modelling or digital elevation modelling, offer significant benefits across various stages of construction, planning, and environmental management. These surveys create detailed 3D models of the terrain, providing a comprehensive understanding of the land’s features, including its contours, elevations, and slopes.

One of the primary benefits is the ability to conduct accurate and efficient site analysis and planning, enabling architects, engineers, and developers to make informed decisions regarding design and construction. Ground modelling enhances the assessment of potential environmental impacts, optimises earthwork calculations, and facilitates flood risk analysis by accurately representing water flow and accumulation areas. It also supports infrastructure development by aiding in the design of roads, drainage systems, and other utilities, ensuring they are appropriately integrated with the natural landscape.

Furthermore, ground modelling contributes to reducing project costs and timelines by identifying potential issues early in the planning process, allowing for adjustments before physical work begins, thus minimising the need for costly revisions during construction.
