Aerial surveys offer an advantageous perspective on disasters and their effects. By gathering data and information aerially, disasters can be monitored and assessed safely and quickly. Using advanced equipment, Leading Edge can provide accurate data to help you monitor damage, mitigate further risks, plan for rehabilitation, and prepare for future events.
Leading Edge understands there are situations that require quick mobilization and collection of data.
During the New Brunswick 2009 Flood, Leading Edge quickly mobilized to provide rapid response support to the New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization (EMO). Leading Edge and EMO worked closely in an effort to acquire imagery of affected areas, as the flood waters moved through more than 1,500 linear kilometres of rivers, tributaries and lakes.
Following acquisition, the directly georeferenced Orthoimagery was processed and delivered to the EMO within 36 hours. This rapid response continued for seven days, with Leading Edge acquiring more than 7000 km² of aerial photography for the Province of New Brunswick.
Leading Edge will work with your specific needs to provide the most accurate data in the shortest turnaround possible, providing you with critical information in the face of a disaster.
Aerial surveys can offer an accurate interpretation of the current hydrological scheme.
Potential water level rise studies can be supported by means of highly accurate 3D vector(s), and topologically corrected contours are individually inspected. Leading Edge’s coastal mapping products surpass the industry standards, and illustrate hydrological and terrain states.
Conducting coastal mapping surveys before and after natural occurrences allows for easy monitoring of changes and preparation for future natural occurrences.
