Visual Aerial Survey and Mapping

One of the most regular tasks performed by Heli Surveys is survey and mapping. Using the latest technology, GPS-interfaced mapping systems and standard aerial survey equipment (transect bars), accurate maps and/or population estimates of anything from weeds to wild horses can be achieved. Additionally, using a sophisticated radio telemetry tracking system, radio collared animals including pigs, wild dogs, goats and spotted-tail quolls can be successfully tracked and located.

We view land management as a primary role of our business. As such, our knowledge and dedication to the environment is evident in our regular customer base, who range from private companies to universities and government land management agencies.
