Landform’s Aerial Operations Team aims to partner with your marketing efforts and provide stunning imagery. Our team is able to capture detailed shots and beautiful, panoramic photos. This allows your company the ability to show your site in meaningful and creative new ways.

Our drones not only offer photography services but video footage as well. Our team can fly our drones around your site, with the ability to create seamless videos and a time-lapse of your project. This is not only valuable for the aesthetics but allows your company and clients to see the progression of the project through real-time, high definition photography.

Our team is able to use the drones as a tool to fly over a site and create high definition and extremely accurate, real-time aerial photography for a survey of large, underdeveloped sites or farmland. Our drone survey services are different from regular survey suppliers because we integrate drone data with experienced survey professionals and accurate survey-grade equipment to provide more efficient work without sacrificing accuracy.

Landform’s Aerial Operations Team can work with your company to save significant time on your project. Our drones offer the opportunity to quickly and accurately measure stockpile volumes, track earthwork throughout your site, and create grading as-builts more quickly and accurately than traditional survey methods. Our team links drone ground control points (GCP) to our survey-grade equipment to ensure our drone data is reliable and accurate. Our drone work brings efficiency to your project by no longer needing two separate companies for drone and survey work, as all of our survey crews are also FAA Part 107 certified commercial drone pilots. We can also ensure the accuracy of our drones because these experienced surveyors are the ones running the flights.
