My Goals are not your goals

After a difficult 2017 stranded In Pueblo,CO I have taken the advice of my childhood friend Mr."X". The goal is to follow the instructions that have been given to me and to stop listening to people who just want to make money from my direct involvement. My Goals are NOT your Goals! Allow me to repay your generosity and leave this drug infested corrupt City .

The fact that I'm not able to find a person who I can trust in the City of Pueblo,Colorado which includes the local Surveyors which  says a lot to the current state of affairs.

There are no members or boards here neither is the collaboration that one would expect after dealing with Government affairs and or subcontracting Survey work for over twenty years. I have never seen anything like this I will not contribute or donate or  share one once of anything with these people and the sooner I leave the better I will feel. When I look back to the time I have spent here...I can not think of any one time I can say I wasn't sick or upset or stressed. This is a third world nation existing in a fishbowl and it is by design.

JP Fonseca Land Management Services UAS-UAV systems are getting the job done


LOOK FOR OUR NEW "AIRNAV" SYSTEMS FOR GIS-geospatial  ENVIRONMENTS 2018  
 JP FONSECA LAND SURVEYING AIRBORNE SYSTEMS

I'm going back to design and prototype of my UAV concepts and UAS systems. I moved the office to Colorado Springs,Colorado  and kept the door open in Fairbanks, AK. The goal is for me to settle down in Fairbanks,AK  and not pursue project based or contract work with Govt. sites. I found a little piece of happiness here and I'm looking forward to sharing and maintaining my new found happiness. It's a refreshing experience to be with someone that
 I enjoy being with and able to find common ground..

I am continuing the 3d Scanning phase of my work and building 3d scanning platforms for the Hexacopters and Octocopters for the rest of the year . The main interest in Colorado Springs,Colorado  is in fact HDS and 3d Scanning but I can also say that they are extremely interested in UAV/UAS technologies for future projects in the City and or energy related sites...which makes this a very easy choice for me to stay Temporarily not to mention my new passion in my life to which I am very lucky to have met.



New Ground stations in Portable and mobile trailers. JP Fonseca Land Management  Systems can be on site anywhere in North America in a moments notice. satellite Trailers travel with our Ground pilots for real time data streaming for our growing subscribers.

Land Surveys is now fully operational with the latest innovation in surveying technology, claiming to become one of the first Australian surveying companies to offer an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) mapping service.


JpFonseca Land Management Services  operational  Land Surveys’ new UAV mapping systems will complement the company’s traditional UAS surveying services by providing rapid-response aerial surveying. Key applications include volumetric surveys and imagery for mining projects, civil construction and environmental, heritage and agricultural applications, and infrastructure for GIS base map updating.


The benefit of this technology is that digital elevation models (DEM) and orthophotos can be produced in a matter of hours, rather than days or weeks as is the case with traditional methods.


“We can capture survey and image data in a relatively short timeframe, without exposing operators to environments that are hazardous or inaccessible.”

JpFonseca Land Management Services has several UAV systems, each comprising a  DJI  UAV platforms, photogrammetric processing and surveying software, which can deliver orthorectified imagery and DEMs in all common CAD and GIS formats.


“Many of our clients are mining and engineering surveyors, engineers, environmental scientists and geologists who have rigid reporting requirements and are often working with outdated data,” Mr Wilkinson said. “To compound this, surveyors are usually working at capacity and sometimes struggle to deliver time-critical information such as end-of-month volumetric reports. Our UAV mapping service has given them the opportunity to address these issues.” within minutes of mission flight paths.

Pete Fonseca (Director of Aerial Land Surveying) : Our systems are operated by survey Technicians or photogrammetrists, specifically trained and qualified as UAV Operators. This gives our clients comfort in the knowledge that their data is being captured and processed by spatial data professionals.

“Those same professionals are also equipped to use additional surveying instruments such as GPS, total stations and laser scanners, so we can mobilize a single surveyor or two man crew with several tools, resulting in manpower cost savings.” through our network of existing clients of Land Surveying and Civil Engineering companies, strategically located through out North America.

Unmanned systems are comparable to traditional scanning capabilities, as both services are underpinned with similar data management and processing strategies. UAV is a rapidly developing technology being used for many other commercial applications including general aerial photography and infrastructure inspection work, cinema photography, agriculture, advertising, surveillance, amongst others.

Inspections can cover ranges  between 120km - 170km per day, a much larger area than a foot survey could ever achieve.

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) provide a very cost effective means of collecting geodata, primarily because they do not require very sophisticated image acquisition sensors on-board and also do not have to be piloted manually. Added to this, these battery-operated UAVs are environment friendly too.
UAV images need to be rectified and validated for accuracy using sophisticated software before they can be used for conducting any study or analysis. As one of the early providers of UAV image processing and data analysis services in the industry, Above Summit  allows you to put your UAV imagery to use for a range of commercial, environmental, and governance requirements. We use a combination of UAV post processing software and industry-standard photogrammetry software.


Our services include the following:
UAV data acquisition
Image processing
Orthorectification
Data modeling – DEM / DTM / DSM
3D feature extraction
In order to provide end-to-end support with respect to UAV image interpretation, SBL has entered into strategic tie-ups with various organizations that are competent in flying UAVs. Based on your industry and your requirements, we can help you identify the right kind of UAV and the most suitable UAV flight provider from among our strategic partners.

Waypoint Navigation
By using the DJI Waypoint Navigation, larger areas can be surveyed automatically. A notebook, netbook or tablet can be connected to the Mobile Ground Station to direct the flight system in a map. Matrix patterns can be set up with defined parameters for the generation of up-to-date maps or 3D reconstructions.



Visual Power Line Inspections by Helicopter
One of our core activities within our power line division is a detailed visual engineering inspection by air. This is carried out using trained overhead power line engineers, flying at low level.

This type of survey gives a unique birds eye view of the entire asset and allows assessment of:
·         Pole top rot
·         Insulator damage
·         Signing and guarding
·         ESQCR issues
·         Conductor damage
·         Steelwork
·         Vegetation



 UAS/UAV  AERIAL SURVEYS INCLUDE:

Radiological surveys "THE NEO" OCTOCOPTER
• Coastal erosion monitoring
Corona discharge inspections
Environmental studies
Electricity power line surveys and inspections
Lidar surveys
Aerial Mapping
Photographic flights
• Roads, rail and pipelines surveys


  thermal image inspections
Thermal image inspections have become the core service for predictive maintenance programs, as they can help avoid costly interruptions in supply. Jp fonseca land services  are the only thermal imaging UAS system located on the East Coast that can offer these services


Thermal imaging surveys including heat loss and insulation studies
• High Definition aerial surveys
• Live stock/animal surveys including Deer counting, sea mammal research and bird studies






The Airtopo data will be compared to published monuments that are published on D.O.T. website thru their GIS dept. The shapefiles that are used for underground utilities will be shared as well. 
 Access flights or "ride-along" are the ability to fly along and see what it’s like to be on board during missions. FPV is the correct description for these Access flights with one major difference Access flights are chances to fly along to do project RECON and that would be thru subscription only.
