The benefits of aerial surveys
This innovative use of aerial surveys helps to locate pipe leaks efficiently over large areas. It also helps water companies to target the efforts of ground teams to where they are most needed, making it a time- and cost-effective solution.
Aerial surveys can cover large, remote or inaccessible areas with very little disturbance to people or wildlife, avoiding the need to secure permission from landowners to access their land. In addition, because aerial surveys cover large areas quickly, they can capitalise on optimum weather windows.
The maps we produce can be held in GIS and a series of surveys can show changes over time. The data generated by the surveys can then be used for other projects and for health and safety assessments on subsequent ground visits.
