Topographical & Aerial Survey


Murphy Geospatial assembled an experienced team to complete this work. Ground based Topographical survey team worked in tandem with our UAV/ drone survey team to capture all the required geospatial data. This data was processed in the office by our BIM team in line with client requirements.



Early engagement was key to understand exactly what the client required. A detailed discussion and a full review of the specification was critical. Similar projects have been completed for this client in the past so Murphy Geospatial already had an excellent understanding of the scope and specification.


Careful planning was required to execute the site works. Access was arranged to the site as well as ATC permission for the UAV flight. Processing of data was also planned and broken down into stages in line with the client’s design schedule.


The works were executed within the allotted tender schedule time frame.


The following was delivered to the client:

  • 3D topo surface model of the site
  • Contextual Revit Model including buildings and site features.


Expectations were met and the client could proceed with the design stage of the project.


The aerial survey was carried out by a fully qualified IAA licenced pilot flying one of our phantom 4 RTK drones. The ground based topographical survey team used a Leica TS16 Total station and Leica GPS Base & Rover.
