Drones are powerful tools and can be used to map areas in high detail. PacificUAV provides a variety of RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft System) mapping and imagery products and training in a variety of areas relating to drones.
Mapping imagery is typically georeferenced and incorporates Ground Control Points (GCPs) and/or RTK GPS to maximize absolute accuracy. These spatial data products can be integrated with existing geographic information systems (GIS) and other spatial information layers.
- Surface elevation, slope and aspect analysis
- Stockpile volume calculation
- 3D Models for visualizing area of interest
- NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index)
Photography and Video
- Photography – top down, oblique, lateral and panoramic aerial photographs
- Video – fly-bys, rises, laterals, pan shots, reveal shots and more
One-on-one or group training sessions are available in the following subject areas:
- Summary of current Canadian drone rules and regulations
- Drone applications, benefits and challenges for First Nations
- Mapping with drones – applications, tools and procedures
- Integrating drone-collected information with Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
- Photography and video best practices
- Flight training
