Aerial mapping or surveying using RPAS (drone ,UAV or UAS) is cost effective, accurate and efficient way of generating mapping products. 


3DroneMapping, formally established in 2013,  has been supplying high resolution, accurate aerial services to professional such as land surveyors, engineers, farmers, quantity surveyors and developers.

Using RPAS(drones) for mapping, reporting and inspections is becoming a global trend. Clients are realizing the power of an aerial perspective and the associated data collected. Such a efficient retrieval of “big data” is fast understood as a snapshot in time that can be used for a wide variety of measurements and reporting functions. This is all done at an affordable, efficient, safe and accurate manner.

3DroneMapping specializes in large scale surveys in hard to reach terrain in Africa. From linear features such as roads, pipelines and power lines, to areas of thousands of hectares. 

All our aircraft carry high resolution commercial grade survey sensors (cameras, LiDAR & INS), professional photogrammetry survey software suite and centimeter accuracy GNSS hardware.

Our flight ground crew handle all functions from flight plan preparations, control & QA points, flight operations. Post processing of data is handled by our survey office, housing GPU prioritized photogrammetry servers, GIS and CAD software to produce our end mapping products such as topographic AutoCAD drawings, contours, classified point-clouds, DTM and orthophotos, volumetric reports.

We also offer GIS services and photogrammetry processing for those who prefer to do the data capture themselves.
