Aerial mapping can quickly and efficiently provide a means to assess the health and condition of a wide range of vegetation types and identify invasive species. The maps are a powerful tool for agronomists, farmers, growers and vegetation management teams to locate areas of concern quickly and allow ground-truthing to determine the problems and remedy the situation in much quicker time and make significant cost-savings.
Visible-spectrum images captured by the drone can be used to produce plant health maps using the Visible Atmospheric Resistant Index (VARI). Used in conjunction with a high-resolution ortho-mosaic this enables a snapshot of the health and condition of a wide range of vegetation types to be obtained in relatively short time. Plant health maps can be exported as several file formats, including shapefile (.shp) for use in agricultural software; GeoTIFF for GIS and JPEG for general viewing, for use in:
Forestry & woodland management
Site investigation – surface and shallow contamination affecting plant health (phytotoxic metals and substances)
Identification, localisation, control and eradication of invasive species
GeoAccess are currently working in partnership with Kraven Enterprises at www.kravenenterprises.co.uk to provide aerial detection and ground management of invasive plant species, including Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and Himalayan Balsam.
Our Principal Pilot has successfully completed a dedicated drone mapping course given by an ex-Royal Air Force aerial imaging and spatial analyst with 25 years of knowledge and experience in this highly specialist field. We can offer 2D mapping (ortho-mosaics) at various levels of resolution, with high relative accuracy and export the finished...PRODUCT DETAIL

Once the preserve of traditional remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), GeoAccess can now offer underwater inspections, photography and video with our submersible drone, the Chasing-Innovation Gladius V2. We strongly believe that we can offer a cost-effective, comprehensive underwater inspection service, providing high-resolution photography and 4K vid...PRODUCT DETAIL
GeoAccess are always ready to embrace new technology and innovative designs, to that end we have recently acquired a collision-resistant cage for our DJI Phantom 4 Pro by DRONECAGE at www.dronecage.io to enable us to safely conduct inspections in locations that are difficult to access, and certain types of confined spaces.PRODUCT DETAIL
GeoAccess can offer a stand-alone UAV inspection service and also integrated UAV plus rope-access teams, depending upon the requirements of the inspection. Our flight-crews and rope-access technicians are from similar professional backgrounds, have shared knowledge and experience that allows them to work together seamlessly and efficiently.PRODUCT DETAIL
