Topographic Survey - Case Study

Quarry Management Transformation

Montcliffe Quarry, Horwich, Greater Manchester


The challenge at hand was to modernise quarry management while ensuring safety, particularly in the context of a hazardous cliff that made traditional surveying methods risky and inadequate. The quarry sought a solution to optimize operations and improve overall efficiency.


To address this challenge, the quarry adopted drone-based surveying techniques. This innovative approach aimed to conduct comprehensive aerial surveys of the quarry, covering various aspects such as assessing the cliff’s fall hazard, stockpile assessments, and grade plans. The primary objective was to enhance safety, efficiency, and data accuracy in quarry management.


The transition to drone-based surveying was seamlessly executed. A significant advantage was the ability to launch the drones from a safe location, enabling surveys of the cliff and the entire site from up to 50 meters above ground. This transition was underpinned by three key aspects:

Frequently Asked Questions

High-Resolution Mapping with Photogrammetry & LiDAR

Our photogrammetry maps and survey data deliver exceptional detail, capturing features between 0.67 and 3cm per pixel (0.67 cm - 3 cm GSD). This data is transformed into detailed 3D terrain models, including Digital Surface Models (DSMs) and Digital Terrain Models (DTMs).

For unparalleled precision, especially in areas with dense vegetation, we offer LiDAR surveys. These surveys achieve an impressive horizontal accuracy of 5cm at 150m and vertical accuracy of 4cm at 150m.

While LiDAR excels in challenging environments, our standard 3D models and point clouds generated through photogrammetry demonstrate impressive accuracy as well. Their horizontal accuracy ranges from 15 to 30mm, and vertical accuracy from 30 to 70mm. Utilising ground control points can further enhance this accuracy for both photogrammetry and LiDAR surveys.

Aerial surveys offer several advantages, including higher accuracy, faster data collection, access to inaccessible areas, enhanced safety, and cost-efficiency. These benefits make them a superior choice for many projects.

Yes. Sky Scan Surveys holds operational authority granted by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to conduct commercial operations. Additionally, we maintain public liability insurance coverage of up to 5 million, ensuring peace of mind for our clients and the safety of every project we undertake.
