Why Use UAV?
UAV survey has the ability to overcome the difficulties of accessing rock face or landslip inspections, site survey of areas of instability and also as a proxy for conventional survey work. HD Geo uses proprietary software for creating, interpreting and manipulating digital surface models (DSM) created based on photogrammetry from aerial photos giving us a technological edge in our industry.
Our Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) part 102 certification provides us with exemptions that have not previously been granted in New Zealand. This reflects our well-documented systems, our processes for flight planning, and the skill and training of our pilots. We incorporate planning and risk assessment/management into each flight, tailored to the particulars of each situation.
