Why every landscape tells a distinct story

The changes to the features of a landscape tell a story that anyone can see but telling that story accurately requires solid expertise, according to a land, engineering and aerial surveying supplier that has been operating for more than 30 years.

Landair Surveys managing director Erik Birzulis understands the distinct advantages of aerial surveying and uses his 20 years of surveying experience to ensure the best outcome for his clients.

Landair Surveys’ skills in analysing aerial photography are a vital part of any large or small-scale development project.

Aerial surveying provides benefits for projects covering large areas and subject to ongoing changes. A single flyover captures the layout of a site and provides a more economical way of surveying a large area than a traditional ground survey.

Once aerial photos are gathered, then plans and 3D models can be produced to help build an accurate picture of each site’s complexities.

Aerial surveying also enables stockpile volumes and volumes between epochs to be calculated, providing a distinct advantage in telling the story of each individual site and how it can influence each project.

Aerial surveying is a fast, efficient and cost-effective way to instantly capture large sites.

For roads and other large-scale infrastructure projects time and accuracy are important. Being able to quickly and accurately assess the layout of a site – especially over a large area – is a necessity.

Combining aerial photography with state of the art computer modelling provides timely and accurate information about the unique features and challenges of each site. This ensures the best information for planning at all stages of construction, before, during and after.


The quarrying and mining industries have utilised aerial surveying expertise to stay informed of the ongoing changes to each site.

The nature of quarrying is such that alterations to the topography of an area are a feature of each site.

Aerial surveying is the best way to accurately capture these changes at an instant and calculate available stockpiles and volumes that have been removed.

Furthermore, aerial photography does not require site access, so the necessary information is captured without disruption to day to day operations. The data gathered from aerial surveying can be used to produce accurate 3D models that provide a clear idea of the layout of a site. The aerial photograph can also be used as a background for traffic management plans, site safety plans, underground services plans and more.


By accurately calculating how much volume landfills take, aerial surveying technology helps local councils and private operators make informed decisions about future developments of landfill sites and the volumes of space required.

The 3D modelling developed from the aerial photographs provides the best way for the unique features and challenges of a particular site to be seen. The information provided based on aerial surveying gives the best base from which to build accurate plans for future needs. Aerial snapshots can allow for the history of a site to be glimpsed in an instant and provide a much richer picture of the overall story of a particular area.

The benefits of aerial surveying are keenly recognised by Landair Surveys, a company whose commitment to precision and accuracy has seen it embrace new technology and develop existing methods, to best suit each situation. This makes Landair Surveys the first and best choice for companies or organisations, large or small, working with infrastructure, roads, quarries and landfills.
