2D Mapping

Drone 2D Mapping Services

2D mapping creates a top-down map of a survey site, or asset, built by stitching hundreds or thousands of digital photos – collected by the drone – together. Drones and high-resolution cameras can help to build detailed, centimetre-accurate georeferenced maps. If you would like to know more about our services, you can contact us by email at info@lensmen.ie, give us a call at +353 087 986 8226 or +353 087 258 4388, or you can contact us by clicking the button below and filling out the form.

Common Applications of Drone 2D Mapping

Drone surveying and mapping is such a powerful tool that all industries can greatly benefit from. This is just a list of the most common applications of 2D mapping that we have encountered:

  • Undeveloped land for property developement
  • Home renovations and real-estate
  • Factories or Large Plants
  • Historical Monuments

How Does Drone 2D Mapping Work?

The map contains points, each with x and y-axis coordinates. The map is uniformly scaled and is used to accurately measure distance and areas between points chosen on the map. Elevation is not shown on these 2D maps as the view is from the z-axis.

Benefits of Drone Surveying and 2D Mapping

Surveying and mapping with drones has many benefits when compared to the more traditional methods, including the time saved, the reduced costs and the safety of the surveyor. Find out more about these benefits and what drone 2D mapping can do for your company below.

Key Benefits of Drone 2D Mapping


When mapping out and surveying a site, accuracy is vital. Having to repeat work you already performed due to inaccurate results is a waste of time and money. With cutting edge drone technology the risk of inaccuracies is eliminated. High quality photographs combined with industry leading software guarantee that your property or site will be mapped with precision and accuracy. 


Many sites that may need mapping such as construction sites, highways or railroads pose a great number of risk to those who have to survey and map them. With drones this risk is completely eliminated, while not compromising on quality. Not to mention the time and costs required to perform the survey and mapping are greatly reduced when compared to traditional methods. 


Our drones use high quality 4k images to create the 2D mappings of your site, allowing for unmatched quality and detail. A high quality and accurate 2D map is essential and with DroneViews you are guaranteed to be left satisfied with the results. High quality images are especially important when communicating with other parties or clients.
