Aerial Topographical Surveys
Using aerial imagery, Safedigging can capture and process large-scale topographical surveys significantly quicker than conventional methods. Aerial surveys are also invaluable for sites where access is restricted due to safety considerations or continuing works which will otherwise be disrupted by the work of a ground surveyor.

Unlike many companies, our processing is generally done locally so that we can capture errors and optimise quality of outputs. Information security is also assured.

Surveys can be delivered in any industry standard format including:

- AutoCAD .dwg
- DXF geo-referenced mesh
- LAS/LAZ point cloud

Aerial Topographic Survey

Using state-of-the art drone survey and processing, Safedigging can provide detailed measurements and observations across your site.

Asset Inspection
Using drone data, we capture high-resolution images, of your building, identify action points & capture measurements to construct and annotate a 3D model, viewable in a standard web browser. Reports can then be generated to pass on to stakeholders & contractors.

Building & roof inspections usually require the structure to be cocooned in scaffolding after an intensive risk assessment. This is both time-consuming & expensive.

Regardless of how detailed a risk assessment is, working at height will always remain a headache for employers.

Safedigging want to change the mind-set - we can quickly carry out a detailed photographic survey, which saves time, is inexpensive and no-on need take a step off the ground.

Earthworks Analysis

Our integrated services reflect the growing demand for a professional, customer-focused partner able to deliver bespoke solutions designed specifically to meet clients needs.

Progress Imagery
Repeat aerial video and stills capture enables our clients to document the life of their projects from start to finish for both for internal reference and communications with key stakeholders. 

Extremely detailed aerial photographs can be taken  at very close proximity to areas that may be considered a high risk concern to you the owner, council or concerned prospective investors.

We deliver either raw imagery or fully produced video content as required. Time-lapse options are also available.
