OUR FEATURED SERVICES
Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) is a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to image subsurface areas. Applications include utility locating, concrete scanning and GPR reporting.
Subsidence monitoring (SMM) provides a wide-area overview of surface movements to identify non-predicted "hot spots," derive historic surface movements and generate extraordinary point density measurements.
Verde, an Airbus product, provides first-class analytics for next-level precision farming. Verde can be used for anomaly detection, field scouting optimization, irrigation, seeding, fertilization and crop protection.
WorldDEM™ Streaming is a commercial web service that provides viewing access to global digital surface models (DSM) with unprecedented quality, accuracy and coverage within the existing GIS software package.
OUR SERVICES & BROCHURES
Lidar is a method of remote sensing that uses a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth.
Hyperspectral imaging collects the spectrum for each pixel of an image with the purpose of finding objects or identifying materials.
Satellite imagery, also known as spaceborne photography, uses satellites around the world to collect images of Earth or other planets.
Thermal infrared imagery depicts heat in the form of grayscale pictures that indicate differences in temperature and object emissivity.
A GIS is a framework for gathering, managing and analyzing data that organizes layers of information into map-based visualizations.
Lidar provides highly accurate elevation models, and when combined with orthoimagery, supports bankable feasibility studies and detailed mine planning.
Southern Mapping has surveyed power generation sites and power line routes worldwide. The results of these surveys are used for a variety of applications.
Lidar technology captures the topographic data required by engineers to design infrastructure, such as new roads, railways, pipelines, power lines or dams.
Southern Mapping offers all agriculture clients normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), yield estimation and crop stress products through various solutions.
Solutions for environmental sectors are available through access to high-resolution multispectral satellites and hyperspectral and lidar systems.
ONE HUNDRED SOLUTIONS.
Our mission is to provide our clients with the geospatial information required to meet their needs by combining and adding value to datasets accessible to and/or collected by us. We deliver this high-quality information in a timely fashion, according to the agreed-upon scope, with an unconditional guarantee and supported by registered professional staff.
In 2012, Southern Mapping was awarded an Air Service Licence and Air Operating Certificate under SACAA part 135. Soon after that, in order to control the maintenance of our three aircraft, we bought an approved maintenance organization (AMO).
We operate out of Hangar H at Grand Central Airport in Johannesburg, and we have the resources to hangar and maintain a number of different aircraft. Andy Watson, responsible for maintenance, has over 40 years of experience maintaining aircraft.
The AMO offers maintenance services on Pratt and Whitney PT6 (small and large) engines and the full range of Lycoming and Continental engines. The AMO also covers the following airframes:
- Cessna 100, 200 and 400 series (incl. Riems 406)
- Piper 28, 31,32, 34, 36
- N46 Partenavia P68 series
Southern Mapping is an authorised reseller of SPECTRAL EVOLUTION spectrometers, spectroradiometers and spectrophotometers. These state-of-the-art UV-VIS-NIR-SWIR full-range instruments are used to measure electromagnetic energy, spectral radiance and irradiance, as well as capture and evaluate colour. Users receive qualitative analysis results, usually in the form of wavelength data.
Spectrometers, spectroradiometers and spectrophotometers can be laboratory based or handheld and portable. They can be used for a wide range of qualitative applications that range from vegetation, crops, soil and agriculture to water, snow, ice and atmospheric and climate studies. Additional uses are for pharmaceuticals, food identification, consumer-related applications, geology and mining exploration.
The instruments can be equipped with various accessories to provide the user with a system suited exactly to their needs. Accessories include backpacks for field use, leaf clips, contact probes, field of view (FOV) lenses, reflectance panels and much more.
