Thermal Imaging and Building Inspections

Thermal Imaging has many applications and the construction industry is beginning to harness its potential by using it during both construction and renovation processes to find faults and to establish compatibility with environmental standards. Roof inspections are a key component of this and the attachment of the thermal imaging camera to a drone or UAV makes these possible with minimal setup, safety risk, or danger of [...]

Drone Uses at Solid Waste Disposal Facilities

Drone flights over solid waste landfill sites are fast becoming accepted as an efficient way to conduct surveys over terrain that is often difficult and/or dangerous to navigate on foot. Couple this with the fact that you can put a drone in the sky for a lot less of a financial outlay than an airplane and making the most of this relatively new technology just makes good commercial sense. [...]

Drones and Water Leak Detection

Drones offer the potential to be of great assistance in the UK when it comes to fighting the increasingly expensive war on water waste through pipe leakage.  Anglian Water alone estimates the cost of water lost through leakage in their area to be in the region of £60 million so there is a strong financial as well as environmental incentive to cut the losses as fast as possible. A [...]

Drones and Flood Water Management

Drones can prove to be a valuable tool in flood management, an increasing concern in the UK after the spate of flooding across the country in recent years, assisting both with standard and thermal imaging. UAVs can provide real-time imagery for fast and accurate reactions to a flood situation.  Also, each drone flight is tailored to the exact customer requirements so you can be sure that you will receive [...]

Old 1950 Landfill Site Thermal Imaging Inspection

The build-up of gases such as methane in landfill sites is a common problem for councils & landowners, particularly if the land is identified for development. Drilling boreholes to relieve the gas build-up, along with 'flash burning' the methane is a significant undertaking, so the identification of the heat spots and potential underground fires is critical. The use of drones to complete the survey and land inspection using thermal [...]

Country House Roof Inspection

Country House Roof Inspection Our client asked us to survey a roof that was leaking, and with our Zenmuse z30 high powered zoom we were able to help identify the problem. The work took a couple of hours and a handful of flights, on a showery day. Using the software from Scopito we were able to complete a full report with detailed images [...]

Thermal Imaging Colour Palettes

Thermal cameras don't actually detect colour at all as they operate outside of the range of visible light, but the thermal info is recorded and displayed in colour formats to make it easier to interpret. The most common palette is the so-called Iron one where black represents the colder areas through red, orange and yellow the mid-range temperatures and white for the hottest [...]

Aerial Photography and Boundary Disputes

Aerial Photography and Boundary Disputes The Land Registry defines a property boundary as ‘the invisible line dividing one person’s land from another’s. It does not have thickness or width and usually, but not always, falls somewhere in or along a physical boundary feature such as a wall, fence or hedge.’ Problems however can arise where these property divisions drift over time.  For [...]
