Harris Kocher Smith is certified and licensed to commercially operate Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs, also known as “drones”) to supplement client surveying and mapping needs, and to support project progress monitoring and marketing team efforts.
Our UAVs can be immediately deployed by one of our licensed pilots in most situations, and can be an indispensable asset for obtaining current, accurate imagery for progress monitoring and as underlays to CAD drawings and plans.
The 20MP camera and full rotating gimbal of our UAVs can acquire high-resolution images and stunning aerial-based 4K video from any angle. The images are processed by trained HKS staff to generate near-survey grade digital surface/site models, orthorectified imagery registered to project coordinates and more.
Oblique aerial photographs and 4K video showcase projects from an exciting, new perspective that enhances marketing efforts and captivates viewers.
UAV services include:
- Volume analysis
- Digital terrain/site modeling
- Construction progress monitoring
- Orthorectified imagery registered to project coordinates
- Oblique aerial photographs
- 4K aerial video and fly-throughs
