GeoSurvey provides UAV aerial mapping services to support our land surveying projects and our client’s aerial photogrammetric needs. Utilizing our DJI Phantom 4 Pro Quadcopter combined with Pix4d software, we are able to produce digital orthographic photographs and point clouds over small, medium, and even large tracts of land.
Our UAV mapping efforts are managed and performed by GeoSurvey employee, Miles Welch, PIC (Pilot in Command). Miles is a FAA Certified UAS Operator, having obtained his FAA license in 2018. Miles is a GIS graduate from Kennesaw State University and assists GeoSurvey with all of our 3D services, including UAV’s, point clouds, laser scanning, and other functions.
Equipment and Software
Through embracing UAV Aerial Mapping Technology, GeoSurvey provides the following services…
Land Surveys with Photograph Backgrounds
Our land surveys have always been very detailed. We are now able to bring them to life in vivid color by applying a photograph backdrop. Below are some examples of recently delivered surveys using an orthographic photograph as a background.

Point Clouds for Design and Mapping
In addition to providing rich color aerial photography for our projects, we are also capable of delivering 3d point clouds for most sites that are not wooded or otherwise obstructed. These point clouds (.las format) can be utilized by architects and other professionals for design purposes and by surveyors and engineers for contouring and volumetric measurements. The data is “controlled” by the use of survey grade measurements on visible targets that are registered in the aerial photographs. Through the use of Pix4d software, we are able to create registered 3d point clouds in .las and .rcp/.rcs formats. This data can also be blended with conventional 3d laser scan data to provide a complete 3d point cloud of existing buildings and structures. Below are few examples of 3d point clouds created through this process:

Marketing and Property Photographs and Videos
GeoSurvey also provides excellent photographs and videos of our sites we survey if requested. These photographs and videos are excellent for marketing brochures, websites, etc. Below are few examples of our site photographs:
