Aerial topography is the most cost-effective way to get detailed topographic information for large areas of land of 20 acres or more. Cinquini & Passarino, Inc. provides accurate aerial surveys using the latest technology, including LiDAR and Digital Mapping Processes. 

What is Aerial Survey Used For? 

Aerial topography surveys are best suited to identify land elevation, roadways, terrain and features for large acreages that would either be too difficult to capture using traditional surveying or would take a considerable amount of time to survey manually. They’re also an ideal solution for areas that are difficult to access, have minimal site obstructions as seen from the sky or have high traffic, such as busy streets that would be heavily impacted by being shut down. 

How is Aerial Mapping Done?

We provide aerial topography using several types of technology, including small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS), commonly referred to as drones. Once the data has been captured, it can be further processed to create the following deliverables:

  • Planimetric drawings in cad format
  • Geo-referenced models
  • Digital terrain models
  • Point cloud models
  • Thermal imagery 

Trusted Aerial Topography Services

Aerial mapping is best used for early planning purposes or large projects; however, it should be supplemented with ground topographic surveys to meet engineering design requirements. Our team will work with you to determine the most cost-effective surveying and mapping method based on your project size, terrain, and land use. With over 70 years of expertise and a proven history of providing accurate, timely surveys, you can rely on C&P to help make your project a success.
