We create precise and accurate geo-referenced aerial models of construction and development sites

Queensland Drones creates precise orthographic maps and 3D models of construction sites and development sites using high definition aerial imaging (photogrammetry) and precisely geo-referenced ground control points. We are not surveyors, but we use survey-grade positioning and can work in collaboration with your surveyors or engineers to deliver fast, low-cost survey data for site planning and measurement.

For construction site managers we can deliver precise cut-and-fill volume calculations and measure changes in volume over time to validate the contractor costs for earthworks. We can also provide 3D models to import into your BIM and CAD systems to fast track the design process.

Precision aerial mapping can be delivered in a matter of days, at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. Our aerial inspections are fast, safe and don’t require expensive elevated work platforms.

Precision aerial mapping supports precise linear measurement, volume measurement of stockpiles, measurement of embankment slope and breaklines and more. Precision aerial modelling of finished projects supports detailed comparison of as-built structures to architectural plans.

Precision 0.25m aerial contour map of an in-progress development site near Springfield, using drone-based mapping

Queensland Drones specialises in precision aerial contour mapping of greenfield and in-progress development and construction sites, providing accurate topographical mapping and modelling at intervals of 0.25m, 0.5m or 1m even on steep and heavily treed sites.

We are not surveyors, but we use survey-grade positioning and provide extensive accuracy validation for our models. We can work with your surveyors and engineers to ensure our results are fully certified for use in your development applications, planning, design and compliance processes. We use industry-standard survey tools to ensure the accuracy of our surveys to as little as 15mm horizontal and 30mm vertical. We can also incorporate your existing survey marks and produce outputs to local projection coordinates and standard geographic or UTM coordinate models.

For urgent projects, Queensland Drones can usually create quick contour maps of most locations in South-East Queensland based on our library of existing aerial data. These economical quick models can typically be delivered within 2-3 working days, have an accuracy of about 30cm horizontal and 50cm vertical and are useful for broad planning and preliminary design purposes. They can be calculated even on inaccessible, heavily vegetated or rugged development sites.

Farmers at our UAV agriculture services demo day in Laidley

Growers gather to watch our specialised fixed wing agricultural UAV run its survey grid over horticulture fields at Laidley

Queensland Drones works with farmers, growers, agronomists and crop consultants to develop high-value crop management and farm infrastructure management packages that meet the needs of a modern, progressive agricultural sector in Queensland.

While NDVI crop health mapping is still at the core of our service offering, we can now assist growers to better understand more than 10 layers of critical data impacting the health of crops and the land’s capacity to deliver better harvests and productivity, including soil structure, yield prediction, plant counting, water flow modelling and erosion control modelling.

We can even provide ground-based precision soil conductivity mapping and soil characteristic mapping using state-of-the-art EM38 MkII sensors pulled by low-impact lightweight quad bikes to minimise compaction. We have the skills and experience to conduct EM soil mapping with crops in-place in most cases and to provide physical soil sampling and testing to ground-truth our results.
