Serving contractors, developers, property owners, engineers, other land surveyors, local municipalities, and state and federal governments.

If you need a large area of land surveyed, contact Cinquini & Passarino, Inc. for aerial topography in Oakland. Founded in 1954, Cinquini & Passarino, Inc. offers comprehensive surveying services, including aerial surveys, ground topography, hydrology, and construction staking. Once we understand your project, we’ll work with you to determine the most cost-effective survey and mapping method. Our team uses conventional mapping methods as well as state-of-the-art technology like LiDAR and Digital Mapping Processes.

What is Aerial Survey Used For?

Aerial surveys are land surveys that are conducted from the air, typically using an airplane or drone. They’re typically the most cost-effective way to survey a parcel of 20 acres or more. However, they are also an ideal solution for surveying areas that could be dangerous or impractical to survey using conventional methods. 

Some common uses for aerial topography include:

  • Base mapping for infrastructure, transportation, and construction
  • Monitoring construction and site development progress
  • Volumetric calculations for stockpiles, landfills, and bulk earthworks
  • Disaster and environmental monitoring
  • Hazard assessments
  • Identifying problems that arise during the construction phase

Once the data is collected, it can be used to create the following deliverables:

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

How is Aerial Mapping Done?

We use several methods to conduct aerial topography, including sUAS drones. Drones are an ideal way to collect data for large sites as they can take high-resolution aerial photography. 

Most aerial topography surveys in Oakland can be completed in a single flyover. This makes them a fast, efficient way to survey a large area of land. In addition, there’s little to no disruption to the site or the general public.

Trusted Aerial Topography Services

Aerial mapping is best used for early planning purposes or large projects. However, it must 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. We’ll take into account your project size, terrain, and land use. With over 70 years of providing accurate, timely surveys, you can rely on C&P to help make your project a success.
