Using state-of-the-art UAVs equipped with high-resolution cameras and sensors, we capture detailed imagery and collect accurate measurements from above. Our drone surveys provide a bird’s-eye view that traditional surveying methods simply cannot match. By accessing inaccessible or hazardous areas with ease, we save you time, costs, and potential safety risks associated with manual surveys.

By choosing our drone survey services, you can unlock valuable insights for various applications. Whether you need topographic mapping, land surveying, infrastructure inspection, or environmental monitoring, our expert team tailors each survey to your specific requirements. We deliver accurate and actionable data that enables you to optimize project planning, monitor site progress, identify potential issues, and make informed decisions swiftly.

Our commitment to excellence extends beyond data collection. We utilise advanced data processing and analysis techniques to transform raw aerial data into meaningful deliverables. Our comprehensive topographic surveys, 3D models & fa├žade condition surveys empower you to visualise and interpret the survey results effectively. We strive for the highest level of accuracy, ensuring that you have reliable information at your fingertips.



All our UAV & Drone surveys are carried out in accordance with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) specification. All our Drone pilots have the permissions to fly in densely populated urban areas.


Are drone surveys legal and regulated?

Drone surveys are subject to legal regulations and guidelines set by aviation authorities. In many countries, commercial drone operations require proper licensing, permits, and compliance with specific rules. These rules are in place to ensure safety, privacy, and responsible drone usage. Our team at Michael Gallie stays updated with the latest regulations and ensures full compliance during all drone survey operations.

How can you benefit from drone surveys?

Drone surveys offer tremendous benefits across various industries. In construction and engineering, drones can provide aerial mapping, site monitoring, and progress tracking. Real estate professionals leverage drone surveys for property inspections, virtual tours, and showcasing landscapes.

How accurate are drone surveys compared to traditional surveys?

Drone surveys provide highly accurate data, comparable to traditional survey methods. Modern drones are equipped with advanced sensors, GPS technology, and high-resolution cameras, enabling accurate measurements and detailed imagery. However, accuracy can vary depending on factors such as the quality of equipment, flight planning, and data processing techniques. At Michael Gallie, we employ industry-leading drone technology and follow stringent protocols to ensure the highest level of accuracy in our surveys.

Can drone surveys be used for mapping large areas?

Drone surveys are exceptionally well-suited for mapping large areas efficiently and cost-effectively. Traditional survey methods often require significant time, resources, and manpower to cover vast regions. Drones, on the other hand, can swiftly capture aerial data, providing a comprehensive view of the entire area. With advanced flight planning and data stitching techniques, our team at Michael Gallie can map large areas accurately, saving you time and resources.

Are drone surveys more cost-effective than traditional surveys?

Traditional surveys often involve labour-intensive fieldwork, manual measurements, and extensive equipment setups. In contrast, drone surveys require fewer resources, minimize the need for manual labour, and provide efficient data collection and analysis. This streamlined process translates into reduced costs and faster project turnaround times. By choosing drone surveys from Michael Gallie, you can optimize your budget and allocate resources more effectively.
