Reasons Why Surveying & Mapping Services Are Important

Land surveying is the process of mapping and marking land using mathematical concepts and techniques. The survey data comes in handy during the inspection or development stage of the land.

Surveying and mapping services make it easier for investors to learn about a piece of land before investing in it. One of the primary factors that affect the price of the land is its topographical features. Surveying and mapping via drones help investors look at the topographical features of the land in detail to get a better idea about the condition of the place. 

A detailed Surveying and mapping analysis of land before development can provide you with useful insights when doing development works. Developers can use the results gathered from Surveying and mapping to come up with the right design ideas for landscapes, buildings, and structures that they want to develop. 

Land Sterling has a fleet of advanced drones and licensed drone pilots who handle the entire surveying and mapping process for you. With our surveying and mapping services, you can get accurate data regarding land, faster than manual surveys.

Aerial Surveying

Our aerial survey drones include built-in or attachable cameras and sensors. They are equipped with RGB cameras that take pictures of the land from the nadir and oblique angles. The built-in computer stores the images with geo-location information so that all images will have the geo-referenced metadata stored.

We use high-resolution cameras and LiDAR payloads on our aerial survey drones. And we operate them using a Smart Remote Controller to fly and record video. Aerial Photogrammetry Software facilitates the creation of applicable three-dimensional models that can be manipulated and put to other use.

Aerial Mapping

Surveyors prefer aerial mapping with drones because it is faster, easier, and more cost-effective than ground mapping. GIS Drones use multispectral or RGB cameras and essential LiDAR sensors in every Aerial Mapping project.

Photogrammetry is a method used by drones equipped with RGB cameras to take several images of the ground from various perspectives.

It is possible to use aerial survey drone software to tag each photograph with its coordinates. Then, the photos are stitched together from various viewpoints to create 2D and 3D maps with high detail and accuracy.

Marine Habitat Mapping

Drone bathymetry surveys tell you about the water depth and underwater features and give a picture of habitat patterns. This information can help fishing and habitat conservation.

Maritime Industry

Drones survey provides vital information about the safest route and possible shifts in current, tides, and water patterns.

Oil & Gas Industry

Smooth operations in the oil and gas industry depend on the timely detection of any spill or malfunction in the processing units. This prevents the downtime of Oil & Gas operations, saving millions of dollars.

Security Industry

Drones are like your eyes in the sky. You can keep constant surveillance on your facilities from anywhere in the world.

Mapping, Modeling & Digital Twin

Add an extra dimension to inspection and data visualization. Land Sterling uses a GIS Drone that relies on industry-standard UAVs with a high-resolution camera capable of collecting 20-megapixel aerial images for commercial photogrammetry mapping. We stitch the data together to create a 2D map or a 3D model using still photographs and geo-located metadata to establish their positions and angles.

GIS Drones also offer a digital twin to generate a detailed picture of an object or process. A digital twin is the virtual representation of a system or object prepared using simulations and machine learning from real-time data.  A 3D model of the interior and exterior is simply one part of the whole picture of a digital twin.


This is a top-down map survey built by stitching hundreds or thousands of digital photos collected by drones. GIS Drones have high-resolution cameras that help capture detailed, centimeter-accurate geo-referenced maps.

We use cloud-based drone mapping software to produce 2D photomosaics in the form of geo-referenced Orthomosaic. 2D orthophotography is used to measure actual distance because it accurately represents the earth’s geographic surface.

Advantages of 2D Mapping

  • It’s faster 
  • Can easily access difficult areas
  • Measurements and models created are more precise and accurate.
  • Production of high-definition aerial pictures
  • Helps in the navigation of large areas
  • Can be used in tracking the before and after of a project, e.g., Construction


A combination of the 2D Orthomosaic and 2D Photomosaic with additional oblique side images leads to the production of a 3D model. GIS Drones use 3D modelling to show topography and the exact landscape contours.

3D modelling is becoming an integral part of day-to-day operations, progress monitoring, and volume measurement of materials.

Advantages of 3D Modelling

  • Offers quick, easy, and immediate results
  • Offers accurate visuals
  • Elimination of field interference 
  • Spot unseen errors
  • It saves money and time

    • Used to inspect intricate assets and operations.


Digital twins are high-quality representations of real-world objects. In addition, it provides real-time data on how the system is working. Virtual representation has commercial uses because it combines the digital and real worlds. Their in-depth data enables you to make smart, real-time judgments.

Digital twins make it easier for organizations to work together, anticipate issues before they arise, reduce downtime, and open up new possibilities. In addition, using digital twins enables you to simulate a problem and test a solution on a computer rather than in the real world. Similarly, computer software can simulate a variety of prototypes rather than building a physical one. As a result, financial resources and the workforce are conserved.

GIS Drones use aerial survey sensors to collect real-time data and rely on leading machine learning software to generate digital twins of any object or process of your preference.

Advantages of Digital Twin

  • Component level – focused on a single, highly critical component within the manufacturing process.
  • Asset level – creating a digital twin of a single piece of equipment within a production line.
  • System level – using a digital twin to monitor and improve an entire production line.
  • Process level – looks at the whole manufacturing process from product and process design and development to manufacturing and production. It also applies to distribution and the use of the finished product by customers/patients throughout the entire life cycle and for the development of future products.
