Aerial Mapping Service

Using our Cessna aircraft with our specially modified camera pod and two bellymounted camera systems (or our drones), we can provide  2D or 3D maps of virtually any location with accuracies as high as 1 inches per pixel.  Using the latest photogrammetry software we can provide interactive 3D models that are georeferenced to existing ground features.  With advancements in technology and software, aerial mapping has never been more affordable.

Oblique aerial photos are stitched together into a georeferenced map. Using this we can provide interactive 3D maps of any geographic location with photorealistic texturing. Perfect for sharing and online visualization.

Vertical aerial photography can be one of the best ways to obtain detailed maps.  Imagery can be obtained with resolutions as high as 1 inches per pixel, exceeding the resolution of satellite imagery.

Overlapping aerial imagery can be georeferenced to existing ground features.  Using Pix4D, an advanced photogrammetry software,  the images are stitched together to create professional orthomosaics maps.  Orthomosaics are more accurate than traditional photo stitched imagery because they correct for uneven terrain for a more accurate image.  For more information about Orthomosaic mapping, click here

Using our equipment we can safely and legally access hard to reach locations such as near airports, restricted airspace, downtown locations, etc.   We can get a closer and far superior view than conventional ground or other aerial methods. We are fully insured and licensed.

GIS Aerial Maps

Using a Sony a7r IV cameras, we can obtain  jaw dropping 61 megapixel imagery.  Each photo is geotagged with the GPS coordinates and altitude data.  Additionally, the cameras is stabilized correcting for pitch, roll and yaw.

Drone Mapping

We offer drone mapping as a great way to obtain low cost aerial imagery for smaller rural projects.  For larger projects especially over the cities, manned aircraft are usually a much better solution. (FAA regulations prohibit drones from flying over people and moving cars, making it hard to fly over cities)
