What are the advantages of drone thermography?

In the case of a thermography taken from the ground

  • The color palette is wider because of the sky, being very cold. It is more difficult to detect small temperature differences that may correspond to anomalies.
  • The operator must take several shots while moving to cover the entire structure.
  • The thermal camera captures the direct reflection of the light, the quality of the infrared shot is deteriorated.

In the case of a drone thermography

  • It eliminates the sky from the image, the color palette is more restricted. It is easy to visually identify anomalies
  • The operator takes exhaustive shots in record time without ever putting himself in danger.
  • Drone thermography improves the quality of infrared shots because the camera can always be positioned perpendicular to the surface, which corresponds to an optimal angle.
  • This makes it possible to benefit from the maximum emissivity of the profiles, even at high height and to minimize the errors due to reflection.
  • In addition, the drone can fly close to facades, therefore the thermal image benefits from a greater level of detail.
