We were instructed to document an archaeological excavation at the former North Street Car Park in Belfast city centre. The archaeologists were up against an extremely tight deadline to produce their final report to the Department of Infrastructure. They came to us to map out the site rather than hand draw the various findings. The drone survey proved to be invaluable to the client as the inspection was carried out in less than 1 hr with photos issued by the end of the day. The client was able to use this information to append to their reports allowing them to focus on the written aspects of their findings. The drone photographs were also well received at the Department of Infrastructure.
