Cardno shares how clients benefit from UAV technology at 2017 New Zealand Esri User Conference

Cardno’s Spatial and survey team is proud to share how our clients benefit from UAV technology at the 2017 New Zealand Esri User Conference from 14-16 August in Auckland, New Zealand.

Cardno’s spatial and survey team in New Zealand delivers projects using the industry-leading AscTec Rotary Falcon 8 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with great results. UAVs have become more commonplace in recent years. However, many industries are still only just beginning to tap into what the technology can be utilised for.

UAVs can be a crucial business tool for surveying, asset inspection and GIS. They can provide quick and accurate photogrammetric data to planners and engineers on major infrastructure and development projects. This can be utilised at concept stage right through design, construction to final completion. Whether it is to obtain initial site data for planning purposes, monitor road construction, data capture for volume calculations and as-builts, conformance reporting and monitoring for geotechnical/stabilisation works, UAV technology provides a revolutionary way to capture critical data.

Operating safely is the number one priority for Cardno. Our New Zealand team will explain how to deliver projects while strictly following Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand rules and exceeding necessary risk assessment, pilot training and device maintenance requirements. The team will be in the conference exhibition area at booth 21 so be sure to check it out if you are there. For more information on Cardno’s geospatial, mapping and survey services, click here.
