Get a Birds-Eye View Through RTK GPS

Digital Elevation Models are generally done using drones (or UAVs). DEM via drones is best done when there’s a clear view of the site from above, in outdoors settings.

Surveying using lasers can be done indoors or when the terrain or tree cover is a problem for drones, otherwise RTK GPS topography mapping is the go-to choice for a variety of applications.

RTK GPS Topography Maps: Outdoor Surveying

Timbercraft Consulation uses our mapping drones to create georeferenced orthographic aerial maps – using our UAVs, RTK base station and rover, we can take high-accuracy images of terrain and then stitch them together into a mosaic. These orthomosaic maps are usually accurate to within 2.5 to 5 cm.
