Advantages of surveying with a drone
A quick return on investment
Due to its speed of execution, the drone helps us reduce man-hours. Therefore, it takes much less time than when data are collected by a technician on the ground.
An accurate and efficient data gathering
Drones gather information through aerial photographs. Surveying with a drone offers a high-quality and detailed report of the situation.
A supervised practice
Our technicians have all the required certifications to control this type of device. A land surveyor entitled to the project owns the expertise that allows him to interpret the collected data and translate them into readable information which gives you a real portrait of the situation. Furthermore, Ecce Terra holds all the required authorisations from Transport Canada in order to operate a drone and gather data.
Examples of data collecting using drone
Since 2009, quarries and sand pits operators must pay back a fee to the municipality in which they exploit. Drone surveying is a cost-effective and precise solution for everybody concerned in order to obtain an accurate volumetric portrait.
In the surveying field, a drone is also used for mapping topographical plans. For example, land surveyors at Ecce Terra use it to measure field elevations for planning new housing developments.
