Aerial Photography & Drone Filming (UAV)

Surveys of your home and surrounding area

One of the main benefits of an aerial survey is the ability to view a large property from above including the surrounding area, which enables us to consider any potential risks to your build and the impact on any neighbouring land. GEC offers aerial photography services using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Often known as ‘drone filming’, we partner with licensed and experienced operators, who are also qualified surveyors. We would carry out a detailed geological survey, mapping the site and access points, as well as assessing any land movement. Using a high definition camera, we can produce stills and video footage of your property.

All the operatives we work with are fully qualified, CAA approved, and all hold permission to fly UAVs commercially.

Construction Surveys

  • Construction Progress: Our UAV partners can record progress from the pre-build stage, throughout the development, right up to final completion.
  • Site Analysis and Land Survey: Our UAVs can record imagery from ground level up to 400ft, vertically displaying elevated imagery.
  • 3D Modelling: A 3D model can be created using accurate photogrammetry data to extract measurements for potential building areas, to understand and evaluate the existing topography of the land.

Land Surveys

  • Orthomosaic Land Survey: An orthomosaic land survey provides images which have the same lack of distortion as a map. Unlike an uncorrected aerial photograph, images are combined as a mosaic producing a clear image of a large area. An orthophotograph uses georeferencing to measure true distances and creates an accurate representation of the terrain.
  • 3D land Modelling: UAVs can carry out aerial drone surveys of land and river basins to produce an interactive 3D Model.
  • Site Photography: A UAV can provide elevated photography portfolios for potential development land, which can accompany planning submissions or can be used for marketing purposes.
