THERMAL SURVEY

Bluesky operate a state-of-the-art airborne thermal sensor alongside the Optech Galaxy LiDAR. The LW640 sensor is specifically designed to pick up emissive heat from buildings and the ground to measure heat loss. The resulting data is used to analyse the thermal efficient of individual buildings or entire cities, and can be used for urban heat islands studies

Using Bluesky’s innovative online portal, cross-referencing of airborne survey results against your organisations existing geographic, economic, demographic and environmental data can be undertaken, and findings summarised to produce a targeted output identifying properties that should be engaged for insulation grants, energy consumption advice and guidance on renewable and sustainable energy products and services.

THERMAL MAPPING

Applications

Specification

The thermal mapping from Bluesky is an intelligent thermographic spatial information source for deriving property-level building heat-loss maps, used to identify poorly insulated buildings and illegal dwellings.


Bluesky provide an end-to-end thermal mapping solution, offering a cost-effective airborne thermal survey service measuring building heat-loss levels across an entire city in just one evening.  Thermal Mapping can also be used in forestry studies to identify individual diseased or infested trees.

  • Advanced GIS analysis and interpretation

 

  • Provides a visual statement showing local energy use

 

  • GIS ready seamless raster digital image

 

  • Relative heat loss values for all buildings across a town or district

 

  • Compatible with other mapping

 

  • Thematic classification of heat loss scores for use in GIS

 

  • Heat loss values can be connected to clients address database

  • Helps report on National Indicator targets

 

  • Target homes suitable for roof insulation improvements

 

  • Identification of "Beds-in-Sheds" illegal dwellings

 

  • Forestry disease and infestations studies

 

  • Locate hard to treat homes

 

  • Assists CO2 baseline mapping for Local Government

 

  • Urban Heat Island Mapping

IDENTIFY HEAT LOSS

 

Derive property-level building heat-loss maps, used to identify poorly insulated buildings and "Beds in Sheds" illegal dwellings.

Optech LW640 Thermal Camera

(integrated with our Optech LiDAR system)

used for a range of applications including; building heat loss, forestry, pipeline monitoring & pollution analysis.

ONLINE THERMAL PORTALS

 

Bluesky can securely host, and manage both the thermal imagery and your chosen auxiliary datasets to enable clients and stakeholders across multiple offices to maximise the value of this web-mapping tool.

Bluesky's web-based services can be used to assist energy and environment teams within your organisation measure energy usage trends at neighborhood level. The portal can also be adapted to provide a public facing web-page, allowing effective community engagement and promotion of energy efficiency strategies.
 
Bluesky will provide a service to assemble, securely host, and manage both the thermal imagery and your chosen auxiliary datasets to enable clients and stakeholders across multiple offices to maximise the value of the web-mapping tool.
 
Flexible licensing can be provided to cover usage from a single-seat to full corporate level.
 
Information provided by Bluesky's web-mapping service can other data such as include:
 
· Property level relative heat loss values derived from thermal survey.
· Geo-demographic data 
· Energy consumption data
· Building classifications by type and land use (e.g. residential, commercial etc).
· Mapping
· Address Information

Data to be provided by customer.

Results from the survey can be connected to addresses and energy consumption data to discover energy usage trends at neighbourhood levels, helping support energy strategies, local campaigns and responding to National Indicators.  They are also widely used to identify illegal dwellings (Beds in Sheds) in conjunction with Bluesky's LiDAR system. The easy-to-use thermal maps give you the confidence to pinpoint buildings, out-buildings and pipelines radiating excessive heat, enabling you to quickly and effectively target your problem areas. Bluesky's thermal surveys are conducted with state-of-the-art sensors under optimum conditions, in order to provide the most vivid and clear heat-loss results.
 
By using the Bluesky Thermal Mapping Web Portal (our organisation-wide web-based heat-loss mapping tool) organisations can easily analyse data from multiple sources and share the results more easily with colleagues, partners and members of the public. The portal is designed to help local authorities and utilities target their resources and efforts to improve energy efficiency.
