VFR Studios carries out mapping and survey work for a number of industries and locations where a permit to work at height would normally be required. Complex or hazardous environments such as industrial sites can be inspected from the air, and inaccessible terrain can be covered quickly and efficiently saving valuable time on the ground.

  • Thermal imaging used to show a range of information.
  • We use GCPs (Ground Control Points) and RTK GPS alongside UAVs

A drone topographical survey provides a point cloud containing hundreds of millions of points. Each point has its own unique latitude, longitude and elevation.

You will be assigned a professional drone pilot ...
... to work with you to inspect and survey a range of sites including:

  • Quarries and open mines
  • Construction sites
