Building an extension for my mother-in-law

I love my mother-in-law but I never planned on living with her permanently. I have been enjoying her living with us now that we have kids but I feel like we all need some extra space so I am getting a granny flat built at the back of our block. This should allow us to have some extra space to make sure everyone has the privacy that they need whilst we can still be a family. This block has some tip on the process of building a granny flat including how to choose a contractor and how to get the council approval for the build.

Why You May Need 3-D Drone Scanning for Your Land Survey

by Chloe Cooper

Land surveying is expanding into technological options that many people may not be aware of. For example, some land survey companies are now moving to the use of drones for their operations. These drones offer various advances in surveying. One of these advances is the ability to offer 3-D drone scanning. If you will be needing a land survey for your property, here are some reasons you may need a 3-D drone scan.

High Resolution

One of the key benefits of obtaining a 3-D drone scan from a land surveyor is the quality of the image. The image taken from a drone can show your property in high resolution. This means the topography of the area is clearer, even for items that may not show up as detailed or defined on other map options. 3-D models of buildings and other areas are also shown on the survey. 

Accuracy of Survey

There are several reasons a 3-D drone scan for your property may have a higher accuracy than traditional options. With many drones, you can enter in more information including latitude, longitude and other specific data. By entering in this data, the drone will go to the exact spot and measure according to the data placed into the device. When the scan of the property is taken the map scan will show the data exactly as it was entered. This ensures the accuracy is on point and human error is reduced. 

Time Constraints

Many times you may be facing time constraints to get the property survey done as quickly as possible. If this is the case, a 3-D scan may be ideal. The scan can be completed and printed within a few hours to a day. This is mainly due to the fact that a survey team is no longer needed for the task. The drone needs a drone operator and the set-up for the drone is as simple as inputting the data and sending the drone off. This reduces the time greatly compared to the traditional team methods. 

These are just a few of the reasons you may need a 3-D drone scanning from your land surveyor. If you are ready to move forward, contact your local surveying company today. They can help you decide on which drone services may be ideal for you. They can also answer any questions you have regarding the process or fees related to your request. Contact a land surveyor for more information.
