Aerial Volumetric Survey

Job type

Aerial volumetric survey


Palmer Birch Ltd


Taunton, Somerset, UK


Our client needed to work out the volume of a lake on behalf of the Environment Agency. We were tasked with delivering accurate volumetric data and created a 3D spatial model from individual photographs taken by our long-range eBee drone.

We used Pix4D to process the data with the resulting 3D film showing the area in relation to surrounding land features. This helped our client to achieve a detailed and comprehensive view of the lake in the context of its location.

By comparing images of the same features from various angles, we can create a 3D model that allows the viewer to explore and interrogate the landscape, focus on specific features and make clear decisions. Volumetric data calculated by drone imaging is a fast, accurate and cost-effective way to analyse map features.
