3D Surface Models
Using advanced photogrammetry tools allows us to create a surface point cloud from our UAV imagery. This allows us to build a 3D model of just about anything that can be viewed from every angle.
From woodchip piles, log stacks, slope cut and fill to quarry stock pile volumes, the use of the UAV derived 3D models enable volumes and measurements to made in a timely and precise manner.
Live First Person Video
Live video from the UAV provides a unique perspective on operations. Monitoring …
Multispectural Vegetation Imagery
Multispectral near-infrared imagery allows calculation of vegetation indexes such as NDVI and EVI to manage monitor plant growth and survival.
Use of thermal aerial imagery after a forest fire allows targeted use of firefighting resources.
Out in Industry
“Use of UAV’s for quantifying our stock pile volumes has been a great step forward in a timely and more accurate process wood fibre management. Interpine have provided a innovative service that shows the usefulness of UAV’s in the forest industry”Richard Sherratt
“Fantastic use of UAV technology to deliver a timely and needed service for our quarries. Thanks to the Interpine team for introducing this technology to the Timberlands team, and we look forward to using UAV’s more in our forest management operations”Cheryl Hindle
Frequently Asked Questions
What safety measures are in place while operating UAV's over our operations?
Our standard operating procedures are focused on safe operation of any of our UAV craft. Pilots undergo rigorous training and certification to operate, and Interpine is CAA 102 certified for all our operations. Our craft are all fitted with emergency systems such as autopilot return to home functionality for any loss of signal between the UAV and the pilot. In the event of an incident our public liability, and aircraft insurance are endorsed for operating UAVs for all our operations.
What camera sensors are available on our UAV's?
We operate a range of normal RGB resolution cameras, as well as a thermal sensor and multispectral NIR.
