Drone technology is the latest innovation in surveying and mapping, enabling detailed and real-time data to be captured and visualised in an instant.
At Drain 247, we’ve invested in drones and we have deployed our new drone surveying and mapping services across a variety of applications and sectors. These drones can capture and record high-definition footage from an aerial view without the expensive costs of hiring specialist aircraft.
The great thing about drone technology is that it can be deployed almost anywhere and the use cases are limitless.
Wherever you may need a visual inspection, whether it’s assessing the extent of a flood, checking on the conditions of derelict holding tanks, or even inspecting the gutter pipes on high-level buildings, our drones can handle all of this and more.
Drain 247 are specialists in surveying and mapping and we stay at the forefront of our sector by continually investing in our teams of engineers and also the equipment that they use. Our drones enable our engineers to carry out drone surveying and inspections in real-time. Utilising drone technology is a much quicker and safer process for surveying land, infrastructure, riverbeds, culverts, and more.
All of our drones are equipped with high-definition cameras that have the ability to rotate and pan footage in real-time. This gives us more control over the camera and enables our engineers to carry out inspections in greater detail. These drones are also equipped with powerful motors and GPS technology, enabling them to cover long distance surveying.
As a result, we can capture more data and create better visualisations for our clients.
Drones are highly versatile equipment as they can effectively replace manpower with technology. In situations where you wouldn’t be able to fit a person into a confined space or if there is a hazardous area, drones can fly in instead and the engineers will be able to carry out the inspection through the drone.
As our drones have a very small footprint, they are able to access all types of confined spaces, hazardous areas, and infrastructure that may have been too high or too risky to inspect.
Here are some of the applications where we can carry out drone surveying:
Culverts are often a source of potential health and safety risks, particularly culverts that haven’t been maintained or looked after. One of our most popular services is culvert inspection with drones.
We’ve found that many culverts may not have had in-depth surveys carried out because of the health and safety risks involved. As a result, there may be vital data that is missing from the drainage plans.
In situations where culverts are blocked, partially blocked, or a fault is present, drone technology can be deployed to safely navigate through the culvert in order to carry out visual inspections and identify sources of problems.
Drain 247 are market leaders in drone surveying and inspection services for an array of applications. We provide our clients with fast, detailed, accurate, and comprehensive data from the high-resolution images captured from the drone.
Our specialist engineers are fully trained and qualified in utilising drone technology to carry out comprehensive surveying and inspection services. Most drone surveys will only require one qualified and trained engineer with all of the relevant licenses on-site which saves time and money.
We pride ourselves on the quality of data that we can gather using drones. Using the latest drones to carry out inspections enables our engineers to thoroughly capture every inch of the infrastructures, buildings, land, culverts, holding tanks, and many more.
We always strive to provide our clients with the detailed and high-quality data they need to make informed decisions.
Here are some of the benefits of our drone surveying & mapping services:

To answer this question, we first need to understand what factors can affect the accuracy of a drone survey. Perhaps the most important factor is the quality of the drone itself. If you’re using a lower-end drone, it’s likely that your survey won’t be as accurate as if you’re using a high-end drone. This is because lower-end drones tend to have less sophisticated sensors and cameras, which can lead to inaccuracies in the data they collect.
Another important factor is the experience of the person conducting the survey. This is because experienced drone surveyors know how to account for factors like wind, turbulence, and other potential sources of error in order to achieve accurate results.
Taking all of these factors into consideration, we can say that drone surveys can be quite accurate. However, it does depend on the equipment and the experience. At Drain 247, our drone surveyors are fully trained and we use the latest drone technologies.
Yes, drones can be used for roof surveys. In fact, they can be a very effective tool for this purpose. Drones can provide a bird’s eye view of the roof, which can be helpful in spotting any potential problems. They can also help to identify any areas that may need repair or replacement.
As long as the drone is used according to safety guidelines and is operated by experienced surveyors, drones are highly effective at surveying high-level areas where it may otherwise be very difficult to reach by a person.
Prices for drone surveys can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the size of the area being surveyed, the level of detail required, and the experience of the operator.
If you need something more comprehensive or detailed, then prices can increase. For example, if you need high-resolution photos or video footage, or if you need the survey data to be processed and analysed by a specialist, then you will be looking at the higher end of the price range.
Ultimately, the cost of a drone survey will depend on your specific requirements. But if you are looking for a quick and easy way to gather data about a particular site or location, then drones are definitely worth considering.
