Drones mounted with magnetometers for magnetic surveying can provide fast and reliable data for large areas, and are used to scan a terrain in which it is otherwise difficult or dangerous to operate. The magnetic data is provided by two or more simultaneous recording sensors located underneath the drone, so the system is less sensitive to ambient noise. Data from the recordings is processed into colour maps, which give an accurate picture of any magnetic deviations and metal objects in the area.
