Our team works with energy & utility companies to help convert their physical surrounding into digital data and offer real-world insights linked to asset planning & monitoring. With aerial surveys, many network issues can now be scoped from the office instead of requiring a physical visit. Aerometrex has executed various projects to solve real-world problems linked to regulatory compliance, vegetation management, utility asset mapping and management, etc. Another area where Aerometrex has worked extensively is the solar and renewables sector, where access to accurate geospatial information is critical to success.

With high-resolution aerial imagery forming the foundation of accurate base maps, you can manage your utility assets from your desk at any given time. These base maps help reduce field inspection linked safety issues, without compromising efficiency. High resolution orthoimagery can also assist in the identification of pole top defects which are more difficult to identify from the ground.

Aerial imagery is useful in planning access routes for logistics during construction and maintenance work at your sites. Accurate route planning can help deploy maintenance staff swiftly and safely during outages and emergencies, wherever they are needed the most.

Aerial imagery and derived elevation models are very useful in ensuring one of the most critical natural resources, water, gets to where it is needed. Tracking changes to waterways is challenging yet necessary to keep the supply flowing and aerial imagery can help manage the health of waterways.

Virtual 3D models can save time and effort while increasing productivity and hence are becoming invaluable within the energy & utilities sector. Irrespective of whether its electricity, water or gas distribution, an investment in the three-dimensional environment will guarantee accelerated growth and modernization.

- Network designers can use 3D modelling and surrounding landscape details to improve their understanding of the network in relation to a specific area

- Operators and owners can manage a network through design, construction, lifecycle and eventual demolition. All issues can be addressed in the initial design phase so that when construction begins everything progresses smoothly across all disciplines.

- Engineers can use the model to execute complex simulations and answer critical questions linked to reliability and accuracy.

- 3D environments enable cost-effective offshore training programmes, be it for plant familiarisation, standard operating procedures or for emergency drill training.

LiDAR is one of the Energy sector’s closest friends. In conjunction with aerial imagery, LiDAR can help collect planimetric information, contours, and right-of-way infringements to be used in route planning and electricity corridor mapping.

LiDAR provides network designers a higher granularity of survey points compared to traditional surveying methods. A high resolution LAS file can pick up transmission cables allowing a comprehensive desktop study to be made. These studies can be used to plan tree pruning exercises by locating areas where vegetation is too near power lines.

3D Point clouds from LiDAR can be overlaid in internal GIS to provide a visual representation of the network and assist in identifying and planning field work.

Integrate accurate and up-to-date aerial imagery with other utility databases to aid operations, engineering design, planning and decision support. Keep track of your supply network using our high resolution imagery inside your GIS application of choice. MetroMap provides unlimited access to aerial imagery that is updated up to 4 times every year and data archives that allow you to virtually travel back in time to see how things have changed.
