Monitoring Survey

Make quick, informed decisions with actionable insights.

Make real-time decisions with real-time solutions.

Construction sites can be busy places with a lot of equipment and assets at work. You need accurate information about the condition of your assets, and be aware of potential maintenance requirements.  Keeping on top of these issues can save you time and money in the long run.

Catch the problem before it becomes a problem with AAM’s monitoring survey services.

AAM’s monitoring survey services go beyond just providing the raw data.

Our expert team of monitoring surveyors will help you understand the data so you can derive actionable insights from it.

Our efficient and live delivery and reporting of results allow for all stakeholders to identify areas that require attention, make real-time and well-informed decisions and chart the next best course of action.

“A very successful imagery capture – the limited shadow in particular was exactly what we are after (the parameters of which would be ideal for all future captures). The colour temperature and overall quality of the mosaic is also excellent.

Expert survey insights to help you mitigate risks and identify potential problems before they occur

Accurate monitoring surveys lead to proactive management and maintenance of your assets.

AAM’s high quality and accurate data insights can help you identify potential maintenance problems and mitigate their effects before they occur. Our monitoring surveys identify which areas of your asset or object are moving. We can even formulate a plan to track and confirm future movement.

This proactive approach to problem-solving minimises risk and potential repair issues, leading to long term cost savings and increasing the life of the asset.

Prevention is better than cure. Spatial data, if gathered accurately and understood properly, underpins the success of asset management.

Work with an experienced team of monitoring surveyors for precise results - every time

Monitoring surveys are a precise science. High quality survey work and data can save you time and keep your budget in check. Get it right by choosing a skilled and knowledgeable survey team.

At AAM, we are at the forefront of survey techniques and technology. Our expert team will set up a stable and reliable monitoring network using high precision survey equipment and sensors that allow for sub millimetre measurements.

With our extensive survey experience, we know exactly what questions to ask in order to scope your project well. This allows our monitoring surveyors to devise the best possible solution and deliver fit-for-purpose information that may be vital to your successful project

Whatever your monitoring needs – settlement, compression, deflection, vertical and horizontal movement or even construction tower shortening – trust AAM to get the job done with speed, accuracy and reliability.

Frequently asked questions about monitoring survey services

There are many factors that determine when we can fly to capture your LiDAR data which can impact cost, such as:
* Air traffic control restrictions
* Weather conditions
* Tidal flows
* Angle of the sun
* Availability of the right aircraft and the right sensor for the job

Other factors that affect the cost of your airborne LiDAR survey include:
* Size of the survey area
* Distance of the survey area from air base
* Terrain conditions
* Level of accuracy required (which in turn is influenced by how you intend to use your LiDAR data)
* LiDAR processing considerations: larger and/or more complex data requires more time, computing power and/or human intervention to process.

Like any flight, our departure times depend on the weather.

We must also factor in our current pipeline of work and equipment availability. But if you need your data urgently, we have different options to meet your need. Talk to us about your project and we’ll work out a solution.

With our efficient LiDAR processing system, you can get your data quickly . Most projects take a few weeks to a few months depending on how much data there is, and how many servers are needed to process the data. We can put more servers on the job if you need the data urgently. 

With UAV LiDAR, we can get up to 2000 points per square meter of resolution. With fixed-wing LiDAR we can get about 1-50 points per square meter of resolution, with an accuracy of <10cm. But your project might not need all the data we can get. The level of resolution and accuracy needed depends on the problem you need to solve and how you plan to use your LiDAR data.

We can supply these formats:

TIFF, ECW, RAW (full list coming)

We can translate the data to any format so if your required format is not listed here, get in touch. We can probably deliver in the format you need.

When deciding on whether UAV/drone technology is needed for a project, we consider the location, the size of the area being surveyed, and the resolution required. Some projects don’t need the type of clarity achieved through UAV. Some projects benefit with fixed-wing AND drone LiDAR. What we recommend, depends on the problem and the result you need.

Yes! Geocirrus (link to store) is our catalogue of premium geospatial data. In addition to LiDAR data we have aerial imagery, 3D models and mesh.

We supply the data under AAM’s license or to our clients’ IP.

Once our clients have received and accepted our priced proposal for their project, we initiate a formal project handover. A dedicated project manager talks to our client to clarify that both sides understand the aim and scope of the project. We schedule the appropriate aircraft and sensor to start gathering data, whilst sending regular updates to our clients as each major milestone is reached. Once all the data is captured we send it to our processing team. We process and translate the data into our client’s preferred format, then deliver it via a cloud-based platform or hard disk drive.
