Drone surveying supports the preparation of site development plans, estimates, and specifications. It also meshes with the plans of architects and landscape architects, construction projects, commercial and residential real estate, marketing and promotion, legal documentation, and others. It provides data for plats, surveys, topography, mapping, wetland flag and critical area designations, inspections, tying aerial images to survey coordinates, helpful monitoring of site earthwork, scanning farms for crop yield, and more.
This type of aerial videography and photography uses the latest in radio-controlled and high-tech state-of-the-art aircraft, known as ‘drones’ or ‘UAVs,’ equipped with high definition cameras that are able to capture videos and photos in detail. With multiple drones and the latest production technology, an efficient and versatile Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) is created, each with its own specialized capability and purpose.
The FAA requires that all pilots have a Remote Pilot Airman Certificate and that any drone over 0.55 pounds must be registered with the FAA. The pilot has to know the drone inside and out, how to operate a surveying drone that is designed to carry specialized equipment, and learn how to fly it well as you learn how to shoot marketable videos and photographs so that you can be hired for filming assignments.
Red Barn Engineering Inc. serves a variety of clients with the latest advancing technology in a local focus on drone surveying Seattle, Washington, but also throughout the Pacific Northwest. Their team consists of developers, civil and geotechnical engineers, drafters, and those who employ drones to do various types of surveys using technology in order to enhance knowledge of the sites.
Red Barn’s Survey/UAV Hybrid approach was designed by their own certified FAA UAV pilot and licensed surveyor. It is easy to learn how to make a drone fly and make money from the technology.
Their Civic Group works with government agencies and schools on engineering packages which are part of a public bid process that also require schedule management, design documents, and a budget.
