Site Assessment Services

Rapid assessment of remote sites

When time is short, RFP auctions are due and you need to make rapid decisions about prospective site development, drone derived orthomosaic imagery can provide you relevant, timely and cost effective alternatives to on-site visits. A drone team can shoot up to 1000 acres in a day, enabling your team to assess large land areas very cost effectively.

Image 4 Google Earth Pro, or Google Maps, can easily lead an engineer to diagnose a tree as a rock - or the other way around. The ambiguity creates challenges that can generate unanticipated costs during construction and necessitate an onsite visit.

It's not just the details - it's how fast you can evaluate their impact

Generating a high resolution orthomosaic of a target site can be accomplished in an afternoon, while onsite evaluation can take a week or longer, depending on how soon you can get the right staff to the location and how completely they can assess the property. In an industry where a week can make the difference between profit and loss, why wait? We can mobilize a drone team to virtually any location within the US and Canada in as little as 48 hours.
