Data Acquisition and Management

Baseline survey data can be pivotal to progressing plans and development.  Likewise, monitoring can be pivotal in determining if you are on the right path.  But you don’t want it to be expensive.

Preston Consulting is able to complete state-of-the-art survey and monitoring at competitive rates using our new relationship with a specialist provider of unmanned aerial survey vehicles (UAVs) and geospatial analysis.  We will project manage your data capture and analysis to deliver maximum value.

Combining UAVs with ultra-high resolution imaging and positional accuracy, we capture the data, mapping and images that provides convincing evidence and information upon which you can rely.  Each flight is planned and completed according to visual line of sight (VLOS) rules or extended visual line of site (EVLOS) rules approved by CASA.

Our operators plan and prepare for data capture and processing in an integrated service that can deliver:

  • Point clouds with up to 10,000 points per square metre
  • Digital Elevation Models
  • Digital Terrain Models
  • Topographic or contour maps
  • Geo referenced aerial photography and videography
  • Percent cover, vegetation condition and vegetation change assessment
  • Erosion monitoring (land and shoreline)
  • Coastal condition assessment
