The Puketormiro Pa Site lies in the Kopurererua Valley, Payes Pa, Tauranga. Tauranga City Council wanted to change the status of Puketormiro Pa Site to an Historic reserve.
The first step in this process was to conduct a survey of the site. The idea was to survey the extent of the features in order to determine boundaries of the proposed historic site. We used the Phantom 4 RTK drone and flew at 80m. Apart from having to wait for a few rain showers, everything went smoothly.
An aerial image was sent to the client and an exact location of the proposed boundaries around the Pa site was determined. We then prepared a scheme plan for the historic site. Ultimately the client was happy with the new boundary.
