Environmental impact assessments

Using UAV Drones to support assessment data

Environmental impact assessment (EIA) with drones

Drone (UAVs) technology is certainly a suitable method for gathering highly-detailed imagery and environmental data to support your environmental impact assessments.


The ability of drones to survey large pieces of land including protected areas, agricultural sectors, development sites and even sites of scientific interest, cannot be underestimated.


From erosion monitoring, vegetation monitoring, measuring to species identification and animal counting, the list of workstreams that UAVs are being used for is lengthy and still continues to grow.  


Global Drone Surveys safeguards your project with, accurate, and quality aerial data


Environmental impact assessment requires constantly updated imagery often covering a specific geographical area.


Thanks to the excellent feature of preprogrammed UAV flight paths, it’s now possible to capture the most relevant data with highly accurate repeatability. The low-flying feature of drones is equally important to capture precise and detailed data down to 1.7cm/pix, thereby providing some of the most up to date accurate information available to support your impact assessments.


Combining the UAV technology and our mapping knowledge allows us to provide you with a very wide range of data and high quality imagery in a timely manner of your EIA.
