At Spalding DeDecker, we use our UAV (drone) for aerial videography and photography to complement our traditional surveying and laser scanning workflow. The UAV data can help facilitate various projects including construction staking, as-builts, real estate, site documentation and mapping. It also helps access areas that are unsafe for field personnel.


Why Use UAV

  • Safe – Much safer alternative than traditional methods
  • Certified – FAA approved for commercial uses; licensed, trained pilot on site
  • Insured – Liability policy on UAV
  • Fast – High Definition Photo and Video Capture in minutes


Various UAV Applications

  • Inspection
  • Site planning
  • Construction documentation
  • Stock pile volumes
  • Asset Management


Available Deliverables

  • Raw Video/Photo
  • Point Cloud Data
  • 2D line drawing
  • Volume Calculations

We take great pride in the work we do. With over 65 years of experience, we ensure that our clients receive accurate survey information and get requested plans and drawings on time.
