We provide aerial mapping & photographic/videographic services using UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System). This technology allows for additional and more detailed perspectives than ever before.

Our UAS services include:

  • Aerial topographic survey including accurately georeferenced digital terrain models (DTM) and digital surface models (DSM)
  • Measurable and accurate georeferenced 3D models and point clouds
  • Volumetric surveys of assets
  • Orthographic maps
  • Contour maps
  • Multispectral imaging

These methodologies help our capable field teams to coordinate their excavation strategies, as well as assisting our Survey and Built Heritage teams to record features and structures in a cost effective and efficient manner.

We possess Operational Authorisation from the CAA to undertake UAS work in in a safe manner as well as all the relevant EC785/2004 compliant insurances. Our Drone Operator Ryan is experienced and fully qualified (GVC and A2 CofC).


Photographic images are an invaluable part of the excavation recording system, post-excavation reports and publications. Our professional photographer records images of every aspect of the archaeological process using 35mm, medium format and digital cameras.
