Our business is all about mapping.

Maps communicate multi-dimensional information in a way that can be simply understood by almost everyone. We’ve been doing this for over 28 years developing expertise in geophysics, meteorology, photogrammetry and geomatics.

We’ve always embraced new technology and found innovative applications that can help our clients solve their problems.

3D Laser Scanning

TerraDat’s aerial capability was borne out of our terrestrial LiDAR capability. We’ve had a close relationship with a leading manufacturer of geomatic survey equipment for over 15 years meaning we have access to cutting edge technology and support.

For our clients, this means accurate, reliable 3D survey data and models.
All our field surveyors have many years of experience delivering accurate, reliable results. This is backed up by state of the art office processing software and hardware.
When accuracy counts, we can deliver verifiable results for monitoring deformation in large structures or natural sites. If a faster, more general overview of a site is needed, we can offer significant cost savings.
TerraDat maintains links with academic organisations and hardware manufacturers. This helps us access the best in technology as well as researching novel applications such as automated 3D monitoring of stockpiles or tailings dams.
Our clients include Arup, Mott MacDonald, South Wales Police, English Heritage, Channel 4, BBC Wales, Redrow Homes and many private commissions.
