Murphy Surveys & UAV

Murphy Surveys paves the way forward with technology integration

Combining a highly experienced team of surveyors, pilots and processors, innovative methodologies and the latest technology, Murphy Surveys are consistently delivering surveys from multiple platforms in an efficient and cost-effective manner to meet our clients’ expectations and specifications.

Our approach to topographical surveys in both the rural and urban environments now combines multiple technologies to provide a quicker and more comprehensive service to our clients.

We believe that this combined approach using the technologies best suited to meet our clients’ needs is the way forward for the survey industry in Ireland. This together with our collaborative approach means we can provide a more tailored solution to the client and ensure we meet the requirements and specifications of every project we undertake.

UAV / Drone Surveys

  • Reduce Risk: The UAV can access areas which may otherwise have been deemed too hazardous with traditional methods of inspections while also increasing safety
  • Increase Productivity: The UAV is a mass data capturing tool which can cover vast areas of land mass in a fraction of the time of traditional inspection methods
  • Outputs: The high-resolution imagery obtained from the UAV can be converted into a point cloud to facilitate modelling into Revit or AutoCAD 2D and 3D DWG files

Road Surveys

  • Latest Technologies: The survey of roads using the Trimble SX10 laser scanner reduces the need for traffic management and time on site
  • One solution: Combines surveying, imaging and high speed 3D scanning in one revolutionary solution
  • Cost savings: The advanced technology allowed us to complete the project in a shorter time-frame, thus saving costs for our clients
  • New standard: The SX10 scanning total station sets a new standard for accuracy, capability and performance

N4 Collooney to Castlebaldwin Road Realignment Scheme

Sligo County Council is planning the re-alignment of approximately 14.7km of the N4 National Primary Route between Collooney and Castlebaldwin in Co. Sligo. The council required the topographical survey to provide the necessary information to facilitate the detailed design and preparation of contract documentation for the project.

Murphy Surveys carried out the survey using a multi-disciplined approach combining GNSS, total station, laser scanning and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) survey techniques.
