Orthophoto ( scale-corrected and geo-referenced mosaic)
Aerial mosaic with coarse geo-referencing and no scale correction
Contours at required density down to 0.20 m contour interval where ground conditions permit
High definition video footage that can be tailored to suit your needs. Costs can be kept to a minimum where you do not require much video editing.
All pricing is subject to applicable taxes.
As we are approved to fly in the Province of Ontario by Transport Canada, we do not normally spend time in dealing with TC issues for a flight. A minimum of one hour should be anticipated for any flight for mission planning and safety.
Generally, as long as the site is less than 20 hectares (50 acres) in size, we can conduct an aerial survey with our fixed wing drone in one flight.
For a typical project, a client may want an aerial mosaic and video. This would be considered two flights with a base cost of $1,000 plus field and processing time.
In some instances, we can image the ground for a mosaic and obtain a video using our multi-rotor quadcopter which would constitute one flight.
Generally, orthophotos cost more as we must bracket the site with ground targets and geo-reference them with satellite positioning equipment. For a small, open and accessible site (less than 5 hectares), we would anticipate spending 1-2 hours placing and geo-referencing these targets. Additionally, there is more user-intervention with software to process these targets which can add several additional hours to the processing time.
