Aerial Inspection

Using aerial drones for the inspection, inventory, and maintenance of utility assets & infrastructure

Aerial Drone Inspections

Drones offer safe and efficient operations to significantly reduce inspection times, save on labor costs, and increase the safety of field crews and inspectors.  Aerial inspections using drones are ideal for inventorying and assessing the condition and state of:

  • Power Lines / Cell Towers
  • Wind turbines
  • Solar Panels
  • Road/Rail Transportation Networks
  • Distribution Lines
  • Construction Projects

Advanced Sensors & Data Collections

Aerial drones are equipped with multiple sensors designed to capture high quality data and provide valuable information in support of asset visualization, inventory, maintenance, planning, and issue resolution.

  • High Resolution Color imagery
  • High Resolution Video
  • LiDAR
  • Thermal Imaging
  • Multispectral


Identify Utility Faults & Issues

Drones are ideal for identifying utility asset faults and detecting fine damages and issues from afar reducing the risks to personnel and their equipment. The detailed and accurate data delivered by a drone inspection enables inspectors and utility assset managers to proactively identify defects and plan for issue resolutions.

Post Processing & Data Deliverables

GISonLine specializes in offering services to process and prepare data
collected from drone aerial surveys to meet your inspection and business needs.




Digital Terrain Models

Integrate high-resolution orthophoto imagery collected during drone surveys to produce digital orthophotos and mosaics. An orthophoto is an aerial photograph that has been geometrically corrected so that the scale of the photograph is uniform and can be used to measure distances.

Take advantage of LiDAR sensors to produce a 3D model of your project or inspection site. LiDAR is a method used for creating point clouds, digital terrain Models (DTM), and digital elevation models (DEMs).

Georeferenced Photos



High-Resolution Video

Capture high resolution photos and georeference them to their location and coordinate system. Integrate the data and photos with your geospatial mapping tool to visualize each point on the map tied to an asset image.

Cameras on today's drones can capture high resolution video producing large amounts of data. GISonLine has the experience to edit and process the drone video feeds and integrate the data into your business operations and products.
