ORCA can provide state of the art aerial survey, using some of the best UAV/drone technology available.
We can provide our clients with a wide variety of outputs such as 3D mapping and models, volumetric calculations, thermal imaging efficiency, CAD compatible reports, topographical and visual aerial survey. Working with drone/UAV specific software suppliers, we can tailor surveying solutions for a client’s individual needs.
Utilizing fixed wing and multi-rotor Real Time Kinematic (RTK) GPS enabled drones, we can provide the most appropriate solution to your requirements.
Along with our two multi-rotors we also have a specialist surveying fixed wing Sensefly eBee which can cover larger areas such as quarries easily and has a flight time of up to 50 minutes. It is also RTK enabled and so this reduces the need for manual GPS measuring. We analyse all of our data using Pix4d to produce georeferenced 3D models, point clouds, orthomosaics, and orthoplanes, all of which can be directly edited within the software.
Our aerial technology is supplemented by a range of professional grade ground based survey equipment.
Hogan Aggregates dominate the North Wales quarrying market. As part of their operation they are required to regularly record stockpile verification. We are able to offer this service for Hogan’s remotely which eliminates the health and safety risks of the traditional method.
"In the industry safety is the driving concern. ORCA eliminated the risk to our workforce and at the same time reduced cost. They accurately measured stockpile volumes in a new way we hadn't considered before"
Jamie Hogan, Hogan Aggregates
Menai Science Park (M-SParc)
The Menai Science Park is a fantastic opportunity for us to be involved in an exciting ongoing project that will boost the promotion of Anglesey as the “energy island”. We were approached by M-SParc to provide bi-monthly progress videos of the site development which are being used to attract both public and business involvement in the site.
"M-SParc is pleased to have ORCA Principle working for us, both as they are a local company, and as they have a passion and enthusiasm which shows itself through their work"
Emily Roberts, Project Administrator, M-SParc
School Of Ocean Sciences
Aerial surveying is an extremely useful practice in Marine Science which can be used as a visual aid to monitor ecosystems over a period of time. We worked with Dr Davies mapping a Sabellaria alveolata reef and by mapping the reef remotely it minimised the disturbance caused to the fragile reef.
"Working with Orca was a pleasure. Their enthusiasm and reliability has helped my team dramatically improve our understanding of species distributions in North Wales"
Dr Andrew J. Davies, School of Ocean Sciences
