Our Services

We offer a number of services in advanced geomatics and geospatial technology.


TerraShift has spent thousands of hours developing an innovative project management dashboard, custom web map, market analyzer, and competition monitor.

Automated Drafting

Utilizing advanced drafting and GIS techniques we are able to automate the drafting processes for disposition applications, site planning, and various other tasks.

Remote Sensing

By bringing more data and powerful advanced computer modelling together, we are able to offer remote sensing analysis allowing our clients to make faster, more informed decisions.

UAV Surveying

We use drone technology to capture elevation data, aerial imagery, and vegetation data for mine sites, oil and gas operations, agriculture, forest and wetland studies, ESA's and more.

Geological Modelling

We have implemented advanced geological modelling techniques including geostatistics and automated drillhole analysis providing faster turnaround and more informative and accurate models.

Stockpile Volumetrics

We calculate stockpile volumes with greater accuracy, faster, and for less money than ever before using drone collected data. Paired with our sieve analysis, you get a true picture of your product.

Geo-Referenced Imagery

Up-to-date and high quality aerial imagery is captured using the drone and properly geo-referenced to provide a clearer picture of the current conditions.

Topographic Mapping

Contour maps of the existing conditions can be created to better understand material volumes and surface water flow paths.

Pipeline & Infrastructure

Drones allows us to provide companies with faster pipeline inspection surveys, right-of-way inspections, and well site surveys (pre and post construction).

Our Work

Below are some examples of our drone survey work

Wetland Assessment

Survey to delineate wetlands on private land

Aggregate Stockpiles

Volume calculation of stockpiles

Pit Drainage Model

UAV survey to build pit drainage model

Gravel Pit Reserves

Modelling gravel pit to determine reserves

Roof Assessment

UAV survery to assess roof integrity

Peat Bog Modelling

Determining tree cover and height on peat bog

Technology Development

TerraShift Alberta Aggregate Potential Layer (TAAP)

  • This layer identifies the aggregate potential throughout all of Alberta on a quarter section basis
  • Developed using existing geological models and surficial drillhole database of over 250,000 holes
  • Layer is able to estimate relative potential of aggregate deposists (high to low)
  • Identifies material types, qualities, gravel/sand thickness, overburden thickness, and stripping ratio

Alberta Aggregate Restriction Area

  • Collection of all regions and areas with limitations, restrictions, and moratoriums on aggregate extraction into one layer
  • Layer distiguishes each region with the reasons and time restrictions in which surface materials can be extracted
  • Allows aggregate developers to identify areas with problems before application and expending time and money
  • TerraMap users are able to access the layer online
