From Conception To Completion And Everywhere In Between

Our Unique Approach

What makes SMG GEOMATICS unique is our full life-cycle approach, providing value to our clients by being involved in all aspects of the project. From the initial planning stage, through to the project engineering and construction, and beyond with integrity surveying we have the resources to get the job done. An added benefit is that this ensures data is captured, managed and stored systematically and consistently in customizable databases, improving asset management and tools for our clients – saving them time and money.

Unmanned Aerial Solutions

X, Y and Z made easy.

There are several reasons why land surveyors are increasingly adding drones to their portfolio of instruments. 

Firstly, using a drone can vastly reduce the time spent collecting accurate data. By acquiring raster data from the sky – in the form of geo-referenced digital aerial images, you can gather millions of data points in one short flight. 

Capable of receiving data corrections streamed from a base station or via VRS to achieve absolute X, Y, Z accuracy of down to 3 cm (1.2 in) – without needing Ground Control Points.

With collection made so simple, you can focus your energy on using and analyzing data, rather than working out how to gather it.

The requirement to have the locations of all buried facilities marked applies to the entire digging community, not just contractors. Plan to have locates done as a part of your project planning.

Line Locates

SMG provides a wide variety of locating services to meet our customers requests. Some include:
◦  Residential ◦  Farm ◦  Commercial◦  Industrial sites.

We want everyone to be safe while digging and you can achieve that with our services. We provide mapping of all locates performed. Photos are taken of all locates to show how the locate marks were placed on the ground.

Whether the ground disturbance is to take place on public or private land, the Occupational Safety and Health Code requires that ALL buried facilities potentially in conflict with the ground disturbance be identified & their horizontal alignments marked out before the ground disturbance begins.
