Photogrammetry

Photogrammetry

Photogrammetry refers to the process of recording, interpreting and measuring from photographic images. At Landair Surveys we use aerial photography to prepare plans and maps. The maps are used in planning and design of infrastructure such as highways, dams, windfarms, mines, quarries, landfills and for development projects.

The advantages of photogrammetry over traditional ground surveying are that it is the cheapest and quickest way of mapping a large area, there are no site access issues, the photogrammetric map is a record of features and levels at an instant in time; this is especially useful in rapidly changing sites such as mines, quarries and landfills.
