UAV Surveying

UAV / UAS / Drone Mapping & Surveying

TAA & BAA Compliant

Fabre Engineering has been using UAV aerial mapping & surveying since 2017 to enhance our civil engineering design. We now offer standalone UAV mapping & surveying services using advanced UAV technology and software. Our drones use high accuracy PPK GPS systems that deliver 0.1’ to 0.2’ vertical accuracy. 

LIDAR and photogrammetry solutions are available. LIDAR is used for sites with trees and vegetation.

The aerial orthophoto is a straight-down view of the site. It is a high resolution aerial photo that provides excellent detail for use in survey, planning, engineering, and construction. We consider it an essential part of almost every civil engineering workflow.

Services include

  • Aerial Data collection
  • Topographic Surveys
  • GIS Mapping
  • Software processing to create orthomosaic aerial image
  • 3D point cloud
  • Translation to new or existing survey coordinates

Sites up to 200 acres can be done. Larger sites possible – contact Fabre Engineering for details.
