We survey the natural and built environment using traditional land survey techniques, 3D laser scanning, close range photogrammetry and LLAP (Low Level Aerial Photogrammetry).
We record buildings, landscapes, structures, artefacts and monuments by imaging techniques which include gigapixel and immersive imagery, and HDR, panoramic and traditional photography.
We communicate what we survey and record through the creation of digital 3D models, historical reconstructions, visualisations, animations and augmented reality. Our work helps to inform today and preserve for tomorrow.
McCreadie and Associates surveys and records objects in the built and natural worlds from carved stones to modern street art, from archaeological digs and iron-age hill forts to ancient castles and cathedrals, and from abandoned villages to intricate alter cloths.
We select the capture and imaging techniques appropriate to a project and its budget. These range from the traditional to state of the art. Modern photogrammetric technologies provide cost effective solutions for a wide variety of survey and measurement tasks.
WHITE CASTLE HILL FORT
LLAP : Topographic Survey
Using LLAP a highly detailed surface terrain model was created of White Castle Hill Fort in East Lothian, Scotland to record the site and locate the possible positions of by past round houses.
Hi Resolution Record Photography
The interior of the cathedral was recorded using gigapixel immersive imagery and orthophotography to provide a detailed record of the internal architecture, memorial stones and Bradford’s renowned alter cloth.
Our digital outputs meet the needs of architects, archaeologists, tourism and heritage organisations, environmentalist, conservationists – in fact anyone who has a need for precise, highly detailed, 3D data, or a requirement to communicate, through 3D digital data, the past, the present or the future.
We have links internationally to like-minded professionals and academics who contribute, when appropriate, their own particular knowledge and expertise to the data we provide.

Close Range Photogrammetric Survey
Laser scanning and close range photogrammetry were used to record and accurately model Victorian grave monuments in the Glasgow necropolis. These were suffering from significant erosion.
