Landfill UAV Survey Program


Project Summary

Challenger surveyed numerous landfill disposal facilities across Western Canada using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) to support our client’s volume calculations and annual reporting for regulatory requirements.

Survey controls were established at each site for ground truthing and to ensure maximum possible accuracy.

Flyovers were conducted at each location to capture orthophotography and bird’s-eye-view photos for comparison with the original site plan, and to make updates to key plans as needed.
