Aerial Drone Survey

Property Development Aerial Drone Survey Example #1

Recon Aerial conducted a property development survey for a client wishing to submit an application for rezoning a large lakefront property. The aerial drone survey was taken at approximately 250 feet, comprised 1146 photos, 162 acres and the GSD was approximately 20 mm. The RSME without ground control was 1.8 ft. The client exports included:

    –  georeferenced orthomosaic,
    –  elevations (GeoTIFF, raw elevations, and Contours .dxf/Contours .shp @ 1,2,3,5 feet)
    –  digital terrain model (GeoTIFF, raw elevations (DTM), and Contours .dxf/Contours .shp @ 1,2,3,5 feet)
    –  3D Model (.obj)
    –  3D point cloud (.las, .xyz)

The results imported into AutoCAD to create various outputs for planning purposes to show, setbacks, property lines, the highwater marker, roads, docks, structures, walking paths and more.

Land Use Planning Aerial Drone Survey Example #2

Recon Aerial conducted a property development survey for a client. The aerial drone survey was taken at approximately 300 feet, consisted of 581 photos, 218 acres and the GSD was approximately 25 mm. The RSME without ground control was 2.4 ft. The client exports included:

    –  georeferenced orthomosaic,
    –  elevations (GeoTIFF, raw elevations, and Contours .dxf/Contours .shp @ 1,2,3,5 feet)
    –  digital terrain model (GeoTIFF, raw elevations (DTM), and Contours .dxf/Contours .shp @ 1,2,3,5 feet)
    –  3D Model (.obj)
    –  3D point cloud (.las, .xyz)

The results imported into AutoCAD to assist the client to realign the land use with changing business priorities.

Real Estate Sales Aerial Drone Survey Example #3

Recon Aerial conducted a property development survey for a client wishing to submit an application for rezoning a large lakefront property. The aerial drone survey was taken at approximately 325 feet, comprised 764 photos, 325 acres and the GSD was approximately 23 mm. The RSME without ground control was 2.5 ft. The client exports included:

    –  georeferenced orthomosaic,
    –  elevations (GeoTIFF, raw elevations, and Contours .dxf/Contours .shp @ 1,2,3,5 feet)
    –  digital terrain model (GeoTIFF, raw elevations (DTM), and Contours .dxf/Contours .shp @ 1,2,3,5 feet)
    –  3D Model (.obj)
    –  3D point cloud (.las, .xyz)

The results imported into AutoCAD to create various outputs for planning purposes. The properties were set over the orthomosaic and the structures laid out for planning purposes.

Build Planning Aerial Drone Survey Example #4

Recon Aerial conducted a property development survey for a client wishing to submit an application for rezoning a large lakefront property. The aerial drone survey was taken at approximately 250 feet, comprised 1221 photos, 29 acres and the GSD was approximately 18 mm. The RSME without ground control was 2.4 ft. The client exports included:

    –  georeferenced orthomosaic,
    –  elevations (GeoTIFF, raw elevations, and Contours .dxf/Contours .shp @ 1,2,3,5 feet)
    –  digital terrain model (GeoTIFF, raw elevations (DTM), and Contours .dxf/Contours .shp @ 1,2,3,5 feet)
    –  3D Model (.obj)
    –  3D point cloud (.las, .xyz)

The results imported into AutoCAD to create various outputs for planning purposes. The drone survey was used to situate a large home on the property in relation to the setback limits and other conditions outlined within the condominium agreement. Additionally, given the drone survey, the planned road had to be significantly altered to account for the steep grade to the proposed build site.
