Wetland Surveys Ireland has undertaken a number of UAV eco-drone aerial surveys as part of ecological, development and monitoring projects.

Benefits and advantages of eco-drone surveys:

  • Obtain a comprehensive and accurate bird’s-eye view of development or survey area
  • Ability to survey inaccessible areas or sites where health and safety issues are present
  • Assist with habitat mapping and monitoring projects by collection of geo-referenced high-resolution photographs and video footage
  • Substantial time saving when mapping larger sites
  • Cost savings to clients

We have undertaken aerial surveys for the following sectors:
