Protecting UK’s Coast with Comprehensive Data Collection
What Is A Coastal Survey?
A coastal survey is a process of gathering data and information about the coast, including the topography, geology, and other physical features of the area. This data is typically collected using a variety of tools and techniques, such as drone photography, satellite imagery, topographic maps, and field measurements.
Coastal surveys are used to assess the condition of the coast, identify potential hazards or risks, plan for coastal development, or monitor changes over time. They can also be used to inform policy decisions related to the management and protection of the coast.
Economic Advantages of Using Drones for Coastal Surveys
Cost-Effective and Efficient Shoreline Data Collection
We believe that using drones for coastal surveys provides significant cost savings compared to traditional methods. Our drones are equipped with high-quality cameras and sensors, allowing us to capture detailed and accurate data in a fraction of the time it would take using ground-based GPS or aircraft-based LiDAR.
Not only do drones save time, but they are also more cost-effective for surveying large areas, particularly when specialised sensors such as multispectral and sonar are required. Our drone surveys are also highly responsive, allowing us to quickly gather data in response to changing conditions or emergencies.
By using drones for coastal surveys, we are able to provide our clients with cost-effective and efficient solutions that support informed decision-making and cost-saving measures.

Environmental Benefits of Drone Coastal Surveys
Our coastal survey services provide numerous environmental benefits for coastal management. By collecting dense data coverage with the accuracy and precision needed for comparison with other datasets, we are able to increase our understanding of coastal erosion processes and localised erosion impacts.
This contributes to a broader understanding of coastal change in the UK, and supports the reporting on climate change adaptation and mitigation targets at both the local council and national levels.
Our drone surveys can also be used to quickly demonstrate the effectiveness of mitigation measures and their impacts on the surrounding coast.

Improved Data Collection Safety with Drone Surveys
Our Drone Surveys Keep Environmental Surveyors Safe
We prioritise the safety of our team and clients. By conducting drone surveys, we can significantly reduce the need for ground-based activity in hazardous areas, such as steep cliffs, which reduces the potential risk of injury or death.
In addition to improving safety, our drone survey services also offer the benefit of effectively communicating information to public stakeholders through the use of easily digestible maps and images. These visualisations can help to convey complex scientific data to non-technical audiences and improve understanding of various issues.

Superior Aerial Data Capabilities
Understanding Coastal Processes through Drone Surveys
Accurately Mapping Sediment Transportation and Beach Repair
Our drone coastal surveys can provide detailed and accurate data on the rates and extents of sediment deposition and beach repair, which is important for coastal managers to understand in addition to measuring damage and loss. The data collected from drone surveys can also be used to map the movement of sand and gravel deposits.
These features are often dynamic and important habitats, and the high-resolution data from drone surveys can be used to monitor changes in their condition. The data collected from drone surveys can also be used by academics and conservationists to understand the causes and drivers of changes in coastal geometry and assess the ecological condition of these areas.

Data Management and Processing for Coastal Surveys
As UK’s leading provider of drone coastal survey services, we understand the importance of accurate and reliable data management and processing.
During a survey, our drones collect large amounts of data, including photos and points, which are then calibrated and processed to create a dense point cloud. This point cloud is then referenced using ground control points to ensure accuracy. The resulting data is used to generate digital elevation models, which can be exported into GIS software and rendered into 3D models for visualization.
Our team is dedicated to ensuring that all data is properly managed and processed to provide our clients with high-quality and reliable results.
Transforming Wildlife Monitoring
Coastal Drone Wildlife Monitoring
Drones offer a transformative approach to observe and monitor wildlife populations in coastal areas, presenting a wealth of valuable data for conservation endeavors. By utilizing drones for wildlife monitoring, we gain unprecedented insights into the behavior, distribution, and population dynamics of coastal wildlife species.
The aerial perspective provided by drones allows for efficient and non-intrusive observations, minimizing disturbance to sensitive ecosystems. With high-resolution imaging capabilities, drones capture detailed images and videos, enabling researchers and conservationists to identify species, track movement patterns, and assess habitat quality.
