Shape your environmental future with aerial photogrammetry, supporting comprehensive analysis and reporting. We have extensive experience with nesting turtles, their tracks and offshore scrums, dugongs & ocean birds statistics & mapping.
Real-time insights, real-world impact: Gain access to real-time aerial data, by combining expert statistical observation with advanced mapping techniques to deliver actionable marine insights.
Ultra-high resolution ortho-photomosaics and digital surface models will be used to derive summary mapping products. Following aerial survey, imagery product generation, and track section identification, a set of geospatial processes will be performed using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software and algorithms.
Using marine life identification data, automated track direction and georeferencing will be calculated using the track directionality recorded the operator, and by using the ground slope observed in the Digital Elevation Model (DEM), resulting in establishment if the track was ‘Up-slope’, or ‘Down-slope’
Detailed data reported for each capture will include, area in square metres, date flown, perimeter, quantity of up tracks, quantity of down tracks, sand area, nesting area, nesting area per turtle, beach length per turtle at the berm crest, vegetation area, average and maximum vegetation height, percent of island that is vegetation, and the average near track distance. The statistical variations in density between island and cay features may provide useful insight to help characterise or observe differences in islet geomorphology or turtle behaviours, and also that observation of track clustering may provide insight into nest distribution patterns between similar sites.
Highlighting and counting of bird species and rubbish identified during digitisation process. We will count all rubbish identified on the islands and attempt to count all bird species if requested.
We offer comprehensive accuracy reports, including baseline captures
Our dedication to safety extends beyond the minimum requirements set by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, with the company making extensive investment in the ongoing upgrade to modern avionics, autopilots, and navigation systems including real-time satellite tracking.
Using aerial imagery to observe and document marine life, including turtles, dugongs, marine mammals, birds and other aquatic species, for research and conservation purposes. This includes species ID, fauna counts, direction & qualifiers.
Monitoring coastal areas to assess erosion, shoreline changes, and coastal infrastructure impacts, helping with coastal management and disaster preparedness.
Identifying and monitoring oil spills and pollutants in marine environments to facilitate rapid response and minimize environmental damage.
Providing tailored data analysis, GIS (Geographic Information System) services, and comprehensive reports to support scientific research, conservation efforts, and decision-making by government agencies and industries.
Comparing current survey data with historical data to assess long-term trends and changes in marine environments.
Conducting assessments to evaluate the potential impact of human activities, such as construction projects or offshore energy installations, on marine ecosystems.
Collaborating with marine scientists, conservationists, government agencies, and industries to provide valuable data and insights for various marine-related projects.
We're committed to environmentally responsible practices. Our aerial surveys minimize disturbances to marine life while providing crucial data for researchers and conservationists. Join the ranks of marine researchers, conservationists, and explorers who rely on our aerial survey mapping expertise. Together, we can protect and conserve our oceans for future generations.
