With the Government placing NZ at Alert Level 4 this afternoon Aerial Surveys will be closing its offices and all flying and capture services will cease from Tuesday 24 March 2020 until restrictions are lifted. This is extremely unfortunate but clearly a necessary action to be taken to ensure the well being of all New Zealanders. Many of our non flying staff will be operating from home during this period to ensure that we continue to work and deliver the services and products that we can. We will provide further updates from time to time as necessary to keep you informed. Stay safe at this time.
Aerial Surveys capturing LiDAR over majority of the South Island
Friday, February 7th, 2020
Aerial surveys will be capturing LiDAR over a majority of the South Island over the next few years which presents an opportunity to consider your LiDAR requirements. This is a substantial program which is great news for Aerial Surveys and New Zealand. We will be deploying the latest Optech Galaxy LiDAR sensors on this program. In addition to LiDAR we will be capturing imagery where sun angles are suitable, which will provide an additional, current imagery dataset. Should you have any specific requirements for LiDAR or imagery please get in touch.
