Good afternoon,

I am just about to launch a new small business called Ground Control Surveys.

I live in Sydney, Australia.

The business will offer both UAV Mapping and Processing. 

Having read a whole lot of forums over the last few years, I have seen that there are a large number of people who want to take advantage of UAV's for mapping, but who don't have the time to experiment with all the processing software/s. 

For those local to my area, I can fly the drone (Licensed CASA pilot) and process the images.

But for those who may be interstate or overseas; I am more than happy to process the imagery that you may have taken.

I can also discuss the flight planning, ground control placement, camera settings etc with you, to ensure the imagery is of sufficient quality. 

I have refined the process over the last 2 years and have found that Photoscan allows for the most customisation, which, done correctly, leads to the most accurate results; however, if you require the imagery processed in similar software, that can usually be arranged. 

If anyone would like to know more, I can share with you my past projects and the accuracy analysis.

I can also assist with the analysis after the processing is complete eg. categorising the point cloud, creating a bare-Earth model, generating contours and exporting them as a DXF, creating a 10 x 10m grid and sampling heights at these locations etc.

Don't hesitate to ask any questions, I'm happy to share some quick tips on this or any related topics (QGIS, GlobalMapper etc).

Kind regards,

James Wallace
