Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Aerial Photo Technology

September 6, 2012
Beca's Wellington Geospatial team is investigating the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for capturing aerial photos for mapping, visualisation and investigation work. UAVs are ideal for use where it is potentially hazardous to place staff on the ground, such as swamps, unstable ground, mine operations, roads and transmission lines. They can be deployed from an area as small as a football field and is ideal for use in remote areas within New Zealand and also overseas where the cost of relocating a traditional aerial survey aircraft is prohibitive.
