Drone-Based Surveying


Enord is an industry leader of using aerial mapping drone technology to collect data in place of traditional surveying strategies. Our ability to provide comprehensive results while meeting even the most aggressive timelines is what sets us apart when aerial surveying.

Our survey-grade drones can vastly reduce the time spent collecting accurate data. By acquiring raster data from the sky – in the form of geo-referenced digital aerial images, with resolutions as sharp as 1.5 cm (0.6 in) per pixel – we can gather millions of data points in one short flight.

Many of Enord's surveying customers say, for example, that large jobs that once took weeks can now be completed in just a few days, and that a week’s worth of traditional data collection is now achieved in just one day of drone mapping.

Last but not least, less time spent on the ground means that staff safety is improved by minimizing risk to the surveying teams when measuring sites such as mines, unstable slopes and transport routes.

Our Postflight Terra 3D Professional photogrammetry software

will transform aerial imagery

into 2D orthomosaics and 3D models with centimeter-level accuracy.

Horizontal Mapping

Horizontal Mapping

This mapping method uses a ‘bird’s eye’ flight pattern for topdown area mapping

missions. Key mission parameters utilizing preferred ground resolution and our flight motion software create flight lines and set GPS

waypoints automatically.

POI Mapping

Point of Interest Mapping

This mapping method automatically centers our flight path around a

specific point of interest. Once the resolution/distance required has been set, our flight motion software automatically programs the

image capture points to create a 3D model of an object.

Custom Mapping

Point of Interest Mapping

This mapping method is used to guide

our drones through complex mission environments or to complete several mission blocks in a single flight, linking them with custom
