Our commitment to innovation has us diligently seeking new technologies and processes. As in all new things, our first step of research involves a determination as to the viability of a solution as it applies to what we do. With unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), we found that the technology is proven and gives us the ability to efficiently collect an impressive amount of data in a very short span of time. We are able to produce deliverables in a multitude of varies formats, depending on your specific application.
- High-Resolution Aerial Orthophotography (mosiac/tiled)
- Full Motion Video with project-specific vector overlays
- True Aerial LiDAR and/or photogrammetric sensors
- High-Density LAS Point Clouds (raw and/or classified)
- Sub-meter Contour Generation in CAD & GIS formats
- Digital Models (DEM/DSM/DTM)
Publicly-available sources for aerial photography and terrain data are a great resource. However, they are often outdated and with insufficient resolution to be actionable for many of today's infrastructure projects. Conversely, boots-on-the-ground can be cost-prohibitive and excessive for certain applications. To provide the best customer value, Topographic utilizes authorized, experienced and safe UAV operators, in the gathering of timely date to ensure the highest quality deliverables that meet our client's exacting requirements. Our success is based on a client-centric approach that's focused on detailed communication, mutually-understood expectations and the realistic application of the technology in the end product. We have the skills and expertise to properly assess UAV viability and when to recommend manned-systems. New technology is great, but if a traditional approach makes more sense, we can help you with that too.
