WHY CHOOSE mdMAPPER1000DG?

ELIMINATES YOUR NEED TO INSTALL GROUND CONTROL POINTS (GCPS)
while meeting the most precise data requirements.

ALLOWS YOU TO PERFORM CORRIDOR MAPPING
thanks to an on-board IMU that measures orientation angles. RTK, PPK, and conventional aerial surveying methods do not measure these angles so corridor mapping becomes a major operational and logistical challenge.

DRASTICALLY REDUCES TIME SPENT 
on post-processing and data collection, thanks to an impressively decreased side lap and many other elements.

FURTHER IMPROVES YOUR EFFICIENCY
with industry-leading flight times and resilience against harsh environmental conditions.

REDUCES OVERLAP AND SIDELAP
With other methods, 80 x 80 is a must. With DG, you can achieve 80 x 40 overlap and 60 x 40 sidelap. Translation: it slashes the time you spend on projects.

ALLOWS YOU TO MEASURE
the 6 parameters necessary for image georeferencing, whereas conventional surveying methods (RTK and PPK) rely on computing all or some of these values. DG reduces time, effort, human error and cost, while improving accuracy.

LETS YOU COMPLETE YOUR PROJECTS WITH LESS 
people, time and equipment.

CAN COVER UP TO 198 AC
(80 ha) in one flight.

ALLOWS YOU TO CONFIDENTLY BID ON INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS.
With international projects, there are bound to be challenging unforeseen constraints that impact access. DG lets you rise above and protect your investment in the project.

LETS YOU CHECK YOUR WORK FOR QUALITY CONTROL PURPOSES,
which isn’t possible with RTK and conventional surveying methods.

Important Safety Information

  • You must operate this aircraft in your line–of–sight in daylight. Do not let it get too far away from you.
  • You must not fly closer than 30 metres to vehicles, boats, buildings or people.
  • You must not fly over any populous area, such as beaches, other people’s backyards, heavily populated parks, or sports ovals where there is a game in progress.
  • If you are in controlled airspace, which covers most Australian cities, you must not fly higher than 400 feet (120 metres).
  • You should not fly within 5.5km of an airfield.
  • It’s illegal to fly for money or economic reward unless you have an Remotely Piloted Aircraft Operating Certificate (ReOC) or are flying in accordance with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) guidelines (More info: CASA Commercial RPA Use).
