Aerial Mapping for Roads and RoW Corridors

Queensland Drones delivers precision aerial road mapping surveys across short or long corridor areas, using European-made PPK drones with centimetre-accuracy, enhanced with optimised ground control points (GCPs) for levelling across longer corridors.

Our road mapping and corridor mapping services using PPK precision drones is ideal for rapid surveying and inspection of road projects, railway lines, oil and gas pipelines, transmission lines and linear right of way corridors.

Road Mapping Using Drones

Precision road mapping with planimetric feature extraction

Road mapping outputs include DEM with terrain contours and planimetric feature extraction

Our precision road mapping services help councils, transport agencies and civil engineering companies to quickly and accurately create precise large area linear maps and surveys of road reserves and existing road corridors by implementing proven aerial imaging and post-processing models and delivering a range of precision data types that go well beyond traditional ground surveys.

We work with council staff and contractors to ensure safety is our number one priority. We operate a comprehensive Job Safety Assessment system and develop a Safe Workplace Method Statement for each client and project. Our operators are CASA-Certified and carry full PPE kits and $20 million in Public Liability Insurance.

Our client deliverables include full corridor orthographic imagery, DEM/DSM/DTM with terrain contours, decimated point cloud, thinned and smoothed TIN mesh and more, all in CAD or BIM ready formats to suit your design systems.

We can work with your surveyors or ours to achieve the precision you require for your design and engineering needs.

Corridor Mapping Using Drones

Long corridor mapping with drones

Our PPK precision mapping drones are well suited to long and very long corridor mapping projects

Our precision corridor mapping services help infrastructure developers, rail operators, power companies and oil and gas operators to manage the compliance workload associated with right of way permits including mapping vegetation encroachment, PLS-CAD mapping of power line clearance distances, monitoring landholder encroachment, checking fences and signs, monitoring siltation of water crossings and even corona or gas leak detection as required.

Our PPK-equipped survey drones can deliver precise results with few surveyed ground control points. If required, we can work with your own surveyor we arrange certification of survey results by our own surveying partners.

Precision UAV mapping can deliver a range of cost-effective, timely and workflow-optimised outputs including:

  • High resolution orthographic images
  • 3D point cloud, mesh or TIN
  • Breaklines for roads, structures, slopes and other features
  • Digital Terrain Model (DTM) or Digital Surface Model (DTM)
  • Classified point cloud
  • DEM and elevation contours
  • Water flow modelling
  • Volumetric measurement for cut and fill
  • As built comparison to design models
  • Outputs customised for your specific needs
