Technology We Use

The process of laser scanning comprises: survey planning, field data acquisition, data preparation, data registration, data quality control and analysis, data modelling and extraction of information, and delivery of product.

Although the type of UAV selected for the mission is important, it is Seisland’s complementary services that distinguish us from the competition. Other UAS providers are newcomers to surveying and mapping; at Seisland, it’s our core business.

Here is some basic information on each aircraft type and other technologies Seisland's surveys utilize and benefit from:

microdrones md4-1000 multi-rotor UAV

microdrones md4-1000 multi-rotor UAV

  • Configuration: Miniaturized vertical take-off and landing quadrocopter
  • Manufactured in Germany
  • Flies by remote control or by GPS waypoint navigation software for pre-planned, automated flights
  • Airframe: Carbon fibre
  • Overall size: 1.03 metres from rotor-hub to rotor-hub
  • Top speed: 12 metres per second
  • Standard endurance: 45 minutes
  • Maximum payload: 1.2 kg
PrecisionHawk Lancaster fixed-wing UAV

PrecisionHawk Lancaster fixed-wing UAV

  • Configuration: Fully autonomous, fixed-wing aircraft with single electrically-driven propeller. Launched by hand.
  • Manufactured in Canada
  • Field-swappable plug-and-play interface to accommodate various payloads
  • Wingspan: 1.5 metres
  • Surveying altitude: 50-300 metres
  • Top speed: 22 metres per second
  • Standard endurance: 45 minutes
  • Maximum payload: 1.15 kg
MicaSense RedEdge 3

MicaSense RedEdge 3

The UAVs are equipped with either a high-resolution camera or a MicaSense RedEdge 3 multi-spectral camera. The multi-spectral camera’s capabilities include:

  • Spectral bands: narrowband blue, green, red, red edge and near-infrared;
  • Effective pixels: 12 megapixel (1,290 x 960); and
  • Ground resolution: 6.8 cm / pixel at 100m;

 

The camera’s five separate narrowband filtered lenses enable capture of specific data that can then be processed through various algorithms to provide specialized mapping that identifies specific conditions, such as crop damage or drought stress;

MicaSense Atlas

MicaSense Atlas

Following data capture, we use MicaSense Atlas. This powerful tool lets us process, store, manage, present, and perform analytics of our multispectral camera data, including generating accurate and meaningful orthomosaics and vegetation index maps along with quantitative information that can be used to properly interpret and understand crop field and vineyard conditions;

Pix4D mapping software

Pix4D mapping software

We use Pix4D mapping software to convert UAV-captured data into a variety of mapping products, including 2D and 3D maps, digital models and NDVI maps;

3D Laser Scanning

3D Laser Scanning

This is a highly useful complement to our UAVs. Our short-range and long-range 3D laser scanning units enable us to create highly accurate 3D surveys of large outdoor sites as well as oilfield facilities. Our 3D laser scanners provide great back-up to our UAVs, enabling your scheduled survey to proceed even in the event of high winds. Learn much more about 3D laser scanning here;

Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
