A safe and accurate way to collect data for a rock face or quarry wall, turn to us at Volatus Aerospace

Although there are many ways you can capture vertical face data, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or Drones, are a very accurate method for this purpose. Our inspection services are a much safer and cost-effective alternative to standardized methods. We can provide you with the footage and 3D models you need to quickly and safely survey cliffs and break lines, without the need of sending professionals into potentially hazardous situations.

Our Drones can capture resolutions of a few millimeters with easy, giving you the most refined and precise CAD replication of your point of interest. These models can then be tied into known locations, which can project your data spatially within a couple centimeters! Models can be shipped in any format to work with the CAD or 3D model editing software of your choice. Drone data is much cheaper than a Lidar Scan and provides the colour for your points, mesh, and textures, instead of blank lidar data points. These types of scans can be performed on any vertical surface, whether it be a rock face or a building facade, so long as there is sufficient legal airspace to do so.


If you would like to know more about our aerial imaging services and why our methods will help you create a successful rock face survey, please reach out to us at Volatus Aerospace today. We look forward to hearing from you and to meeting your aerial image and data collection needs.
