Verified View Montages (VVMs)
Many development projects, particularly those of large mass or height can have a major impact on the surrounding visual environment. For this reason, planning authorities often demand that the visual impact of the development is modelled using a combination of rectified photography and accurate field surveying – Verified Views.

Dimensionally Accurate Site Survey
With our survey heritage we are able to get highly accurate point positioning on both the camera location, and various reference points within the specified views. Generally, the client photographer will go to site first, and will supply us with high definition digital photos of the views and mark the camera location on the ground. We will then visit the camera location and provide an accurate OS related, co-ordinate of this point. These points, when combined with the surveyed locations of any landmark reference heights within the photos, allows the photos to be geo-referenced and the proposed development modelled within the photographed views.
Latest Survey Technology
Warner Surveys use a combination of the latest High Definition 3D Laser Scanner, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and conventional reflector-less survey equipment to survey this information accurately and efficiently.
In addition to the field work we have the in-house expertise to produce the dimensionally accurate before and after Verified Views of the built environment for planning purposes. This is carried out through a combination of 3D CAD models, surveyed points, camera and lens data and data on the proposed development.
To date Warner Surveys has worked on a variety of Verified View projects for many high-profile clients across London, the UK and Europe.
