Finding and Mapping Gopher Tortoise Burrows

More Accurate, More Detailed, and Much Less Time

Drone Vision Aerial provides the most efficient way to map Gopher Tortoises using UAV, or commonly known as Drone, technology. We use LiDAR and Thermal (Infrared) sensors to detect Gopher Tortoises and their Burrows, which also assists with the relocation process. This will allow you to budget your project and provide you with a location map that is required to obtain your permit. We provide the most accurate results and the most detail in a third of the amount of time compared to traditional methods.

This amount of data we provide may be more than what is required to obtain your Gopher Tortoise permit, but the extra data can further help with your project. Because it is so detailed, you will be able to see each Gopher Tortoise Burrow on the provided map. You will no longer be taking your contractor’s word for it which could cost you thousands of dollars in unnecessary expenses.

Nearly Any Location

We service all states where Gopher Tortoises reside, states such as Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. We can map nearly 99% of all locations nationwide, even in wooded areas. In the event that a property is located in a flight-prohibited area, we may have to obtain special permits or airspace permissions from the FAA. It is somewhat rare that we cannot map a property due to airspace and/or being unable to obtain special permissions.
