RP Environmental, LLC. is able to perform the following with the UAV (unmanned aircraft vehicle), specifically the eBee mapping drone: UAV / PROFESSIONAL MAPPING DRONE
  • Aerial Surveys and Photography 
    Up to 2,470 acres per flight (Maximum flight time is 45 minutes)
Captures accurate aerial imagery and transforms it into 
2D orthomosaics (maps) and 3D models for small to 
medium-sized sites
Resolution: can achieve orthomosaic/3D model accuracy of roughly 1.8 inches per pixel – significantly higher than current satellite and manned aircraft can attain
Input custom Ground Control Points to ensure the resulting digital terrain models are precisely geo-positioned
  • Mining 
    Stockpile Volumes and Management
 Cut and fill volumes
Up-to-date surfaces for optimized blast designs
 Pre and post- blast data
Exploration Planning
Measure extraction volumes
Topographic maps, contour elevation intervals 
up to two feet
  • Agricultural 
    Drainage evaluation and water management
Apply algorithms, like Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), to create a reflectance map of the crops
Select a band from the Near Infrared (where high plant reflectance occurs) to calculate the NDVI
Biomass Indication
Growth Monitoring
Crop Discrimination
Chlorophyll indication
Use the images captured to create high-resolution maps to show which crops need specific treatment and require closer examination, rather than ground scouting. Eliminates possibility of over-treating and unnecessary chemical applications (good for cost savings and the environment)
Crop Damage Evaluation
  • Environmental Management 
    Water elevations
Control/management of equipment during construction projects
Water flow mapping
Contour intervals for topographic maps
  • Why Choose RP Environmental, llc. 
    Cloud cover is not a limiting issue due to the altitude at 
which the drone typically flies
No hassle with manned aircraft services
Safety
Eliminate unnecessary potential for injury in dangerous terrains
Quick response time (time from assignment of project to 
delivery of data to client)
