Aerial Drone Surveying

We are able to survey most areas without any inconvenience and at a cost that won’t break the bank.

At Tide Solutions we now offer remote aerial surveying, using drones or UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles). Our aerial surveys use the latest, most up-to-date drones and imaging technology and are a safer, faster, cheaper, and – quite simply – better alternative to costly manned aircraft or heavily limited ground-based surveillance teams.
Drone surveying is the perfect solution for industrial, archaeological, architectural, topographical and building surveys, particularly those that involve working at height, such as aerial inspections of roofs, chimneys, wind turbines, solar panel and so on, as well as for environmental monitoring, mapping, maintenance inspections and commercial insurance claims.

Why Use a Drone for your Aerial Survey?


Take off and land almost anywhere. Reach previously inaccessible locations. Negotiate complex obstacles and terrain, with the aid of our skilled and experienced pilots. Operate above ground level at altitudes of up to 400 feet (approximately 120 metres) – a range otherwise inaccessible for both ground staff and manned aircraft.


Easily access angles and perspectives otherwise unavailable to human surveillance teams. Be used safely within environments and situations dangerous and potentially hazardous to human personnel.

Quality Imagery

Shoot precise, detailed, high-resolution images and video. Drones can be fitted with a range of first-class cameras and imaging equipment, including thermal sensor technology – perfect for identifying areas of high energy wastage. Carry out accurate inspections and surveys with a previously unheard of level of detail


Deploy quickly and efficiently. Quickly detect maintenance issues and send ground based staff directly to the problem, as opposed to having them waste time attempting to locate it themselves. Survey a large scale project in days, that could otherwise take weeks, or even months

Accuracy & Detail

Provide a full, unbiased record of the inspection for future use on almost any computer, as well as a live feed to be studied in real time. Record objective, high-quality imagery and data, ideal for insurance claims and other potential disputes. Perform repeatable flight paths for consistent data and measurable comparisons


Reduce downtime and costs incurred by human error. Minimise costs with real time inspections. Be used to manage repair and maintenance personnel more efficiently and accurately. Cost a fraction of the price of a remote aerial survey carried out by a manned aircraft.
