ADVANTAGES OF AN AERIAL VIEW IN PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT
Utilising drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to take aerial photographs of a site can have a number of advantages in all phases of property development. A view from above can assist in planning, capturing the progress and be used to create marketing material. Here is an infographic to show you how:
- An aerial photo captures the lay of the land
It will not only show the shape and size of a property, but it can also be used to highlight boundary lines and land gradient. An aerial photo will show you what you have to work with.
- An aerial photo captures the surroundings
As your development will either effect or be effected by the neighbouring properties (especially when it comes to view lines), it will be beneficial to capture these structures. An aerial photo can help with your initial planning.
- An aerial photo captures the environment
Depending on what environmental laws or policies you are dealing with, knowing where trees are located could be important to your structural plans. An aerial photo can help you plot your structures around the natural environment.
- An aerial photo captures the details
The potential buildings and landscaping possibilities can be plotted, to scale, on the aerial photo. An aerial photo can be helpful in the site layout.
- An aerial photo captures the big idea
Taking an aerial photo of the development site and superimposing an artist’s impression of the planned structure onto it will give an idea of the end product. An aerial photo can be used to create marketing material.3e
- An aerial photo captures the progress
Capturing the construction at regular intervals will create a record of the building progress. An aerial photo will indicate if construction is on schedule.
