RPAS Australia provides Local Scale Mapping & surveying to assist in Environmental Impact Assessment Statements (EIS) and Development Control Plans (DCP).

Since our UAV's fly so low (less than 120m) the resolution is significantly higher than a commercial satellite or plane. On average one screen pixel represents 3-5cm on the ground!!!

RPAS Australia can map, model & survey:

  • Quarry lease extensions,

  • Properties, even single paddocks

  • Corridors & rights of way

  • Roads and rails routes

  • Cliff and Coast line

  • Parcels in the sub 10km2 size - we also coordinate mapping of larger parcels in the 100's of square kilometres if required.

We foster building relationships with Environmental Consultants and likeminded environmental stakeholders. Through RPAS Aust, they can leverage our services to developing winning data rich proposals, strategies and assessments. These projects may be single assessments or ongoing Monitoring, Evaluations and Reporting (MER) projects.
