UAV Photography & Mapping

UAV Photography and Mapping Services

First Alert Locating Ltd provides UAV photography and mapping services. This emerging Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) technology is not only impressive but also allows us to provide an affordable and fresh approach to mapping, imagery, and locating services for our clients. We have obtained Special Flight Operations Certification (SFOC) from Transport Canada that lets us work closely with our suppliers and clients.


There are countless applications for UAV in our industry. Some of the more common ones are:


  • Crop monitoring
  • Water absorption of soil

  • Management of weeds and pests


  • Communication and broadband services
  • Tower inspections

  • Training videos

  • Satellite augmentation systems
