Elevation Mapping


NZ Drones can help monitor your site for up-to-date measurements and continued analysis, for more efficient earthwork management and stock pile surveys.

These services offers many benefits compared to old technics beyond cost and time saving. A single drone is able to survey a vast area keeping men out of harms way and allowing a site to continue operating undisturbed.

Using our UAVs we are able to create GPS referenced point clouds, 3D meshes, DSM/Orthomosaics, agricultural health surveys and more. Understanding the client’s needs allows us to produce the correct outputs to make the needed calculations. We are able to make calculations for the client and/or produce the surveys in file formats compatible with software being used by the client such as AutoCAD for in house use.

Output Formats Include:

  • Point Cloud: LAS, LAZ, PLY, XYZ

  • 3D Textured Mesh: PLY, FBX, DXF, OBJ, Zipped OBJ, 3D PDF

  • Orthomosaic: GeoTIFF, Google Maps Tiles, KML, Mapbox Tiles

  • Raster DSM: GeoTiFF

  • Grid DSM: XYZ, LAS, LAZ

  • Contour Lines: SHP, PDF, DXF

  • Reflectance Map: GeoTiff

  • Variable Rate Prescription Map: SHP


We are able to make 2D/3D measurements for any purpose with accuracies in line with the clients needs.

GPS reference DSM/Orthomosaic images

When Google maps is just not enough resolution or the area you require is not up to date than this is for you. An Orthomosaic is a collection of aerial photographs stitched and geometrically corrected such that the scale is uniform: the resulting image has the same lack of distortion as a map. Unlike an uncorrected aerial photograph, an Orthophotograph can be used to measure true distances, because it is an accurate representation of the Earth’s surface, having been adjusted for topographic relief, lens distortion, and camera tilt.

Precision Agriculture

NZ Drones can survey large areas of agricultural in high detail using our UAV’s. We are capable of creating high resolution analysis of vegetation and crop health. Utilising this service can allow for a much better understanding of how to manage your resources in the field which results in many cost saving benefits and higher plant yields.
