Taylors are early adopters of technology and have been for many years. When GPS became available in the early 1990’s, Taylors were quick to embrace the technology and incorporate GPS in to our standard service offering.

Similarly, when robotic total stations became available, Taylors jumped at the chance to make our field parties more efficient and cost effective. In more recent times Taylors have used drone technology to deliver surveying services.

What is Drone Mapping?

An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot on board. Its flight is controlled either autonomously by computers in the vehicle, or under the remote control of a pilot on the ground or in another vehicle.

Taylors complements our traditional surveying services with aerial surveying using drones, delivering orthorectified imagery and digital elevation models in all common CAD and GIS formats.

Drone technology has a variety of applications including;

  • Topographic survey
  • Infrastructure Mapping
  • Waste Management

  • Disaster Management
  • Stockpile Surveys
  • Asset Management

  • Vegetation monitoring
  • Safety Assessment
  • Many more

Key benefits that a drone solution can provide are;

  • Flexibility – The drone technology can be applied to a number of surveying projects.
  • Scale – Drone technology is well suited to large scale projects due to its ability to cover large areas in a relatively short time compared to traditional survey techniques.
  • Safety – Drones are a fantastic technology for surveying inaccessible, dangerous areas remotely and autonomously.
  • Fast Response – Quick and easily deployment compared to deployment of a fixed wing aero plane.
  • Turnaround – DEM and orthophotography in hours or days, not weeks.
  • Imagery – A key benefit of a drone solution is the provision of high resolution digital imagery as well as highly accurate survey data.
