Like so many sectors, drone surveys are helping to change the way that maps and surveys are conducted.

Whatever type of infrastructure or land development project you may be considering, drone surveys can provide accurate topographical, 3D modelling, LiDAR, Thermal and video/photography inspection data for your land development site.

To highlight the benefits of using drone surveys for your land development project, here are five of the biggest advantages of using aerial drone surveys for your project needs.


Time is money as they say. Whether you are operating on a tight timescale or have to conduct surveys in narrow weather conditions, Balmore can provide a rapid response drone survey service in the time schedule that you require.


While time is money, money talks and the REAL cost savings of drone surveys makes them the ideal solution for tight project budgets. As a valued partner for many construction firms, architects and landscape developers, we are the ideal partner to work alongside you on land development surveys.


Land development projects can often take place on uneven terrain with limited vehicle access. Aerial drones can simply fly over this to conduct the same high quality aerial drone inspection time and time again


Once a project has begun, it can be difficult to see the hills from the trees as from a ground based point of view, the development is a sea of trucks, stockpiled building material and other ‘chaos’ as part of the construction process. Drone surveys can see through all of this to provide regular updates on project progress. Invaluable for shareholders and financial backers.


Once the new land development project has been completed, it is time to market the development. Till now all you may have had is architecture drawings, sketches and illustrations. But now with aerial drones we can take video and photography that can be used for all sorts of marketing material from brochures to online marketing on social media.
