Aerial Topographic mapping
Topographic mapping is a routine task for solar plant design and construction projects. Above’s aerial topographic mapping service captures a high-resolution site map at the fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods. Using a combination of both aerial and ground-based methods, Above delivers a high-resolution map of the site including accurate elevation data.
Visualise your solar plant project using high-resolution aerial data
A highly accurate and detailed top-down 2D orthometric image of your entire site. Provided in
a geoTIFF format.
Digital Surface Model (DSM)
A full digital elevation model of your site showing the elevation of every pixel. A useful tool for
confirming terrain profiles.
Above provides linework of your site, including contours and labelled layers of important features. We can also perform ground-based surveying of specific features if required.
Examples of important features:
•Water (lakes, rivers and ponds)
•Roads and tracks
•Buildings and structures
•Other obstacles that may be a potential source of shading or obstruction
Above Linework and orthomosaic details site features such as powerlines, vegetation and other potential obstructions. This example illustrates a combination of drone data and ground-based data.
Interactive panoramic images are a great tool to understand the context of your site and sources of potential far shading (e.g. mountains).
Providing observations on-site regarding access, soil-type, potential hazards or obstructions.
Raw imagery and 3D project files
The raw imagery from the service and 3D projects files are available as an additional deliverable.
