Drone Technology

GPCL have been developing expertise in the new technologies and features available from Drones in recent months. We have successfully implemented drone technology into our projects for the collection of point cloud and topographical data for slope assessments, photogrammetry and general site reconnaissance.

We are excited to extend the use of drone related technology into our projects and develop innovative solutions for our clients. The images below are taken from a slope stability assessment which presented significant access challenges.

Drone technology was used to undertake a point cloud survey allowing for the development of topographical mapping and the recording of discontinuities within the slopes exposed rock faces. The data gathered was used to generate topographical contoured plans, which were then successfully used in our slope stability assessment assisting in the development of our recommendations on remedial measures for the slope.
