Aerial Surveying & Mapping
We provide aerial imagery and videography that gives you a unique perspective to enrich the value of traditional maps. Our high resolution data can be used as a stand-alone product or coupled with additional analysis you get even more information than meets the eye.
Sometimes a low angle video perspective is needed to capture a sense of the survey area and surroundings. High definition video up to 4K is available that offers clear, crisp views of the landscape.
Overhead image overlays taken at 20-100 m and stitched together provide an excellent high resolution map at a scale that is superior to LandSat and other imagery.
All of our surveys and data are georeferenced into the standard WGS84 grid system. With geolocations your data can be imported into GIS platforms to use in other applications.

Why Use Imagery?
Some industries require the use of maps to display data or manage large tracts of land in some form or another. In many cases imagery can add significant value in saving time to make informed decisions that can affect your bottom line. Our aim is to deliver meaningful imagery for our customers in agriculture, surveying and environmental assessments.
Our field is growing rapidly as new technologies in camera sensors and drone capabilities come on line. These technologies coupled with sophisticated analytics are giving small to mid-sized industries access to data that was previously unaffordable.
What is Remote Sensing?
The definition lies in the name. It consists of using methods to acquire data or information without coming into physical contact with the object you are observing.
A simple photograph is an example of remote sensing in which the image of an object is captured without touching that object.
More sophisticated applications usually consist of images taken of the Earth from a satellite, airplane or drone.
Multispectral imaging is a form of remote sensing that uses the visible and some of the invisible part of the spectrum.
Why Use Remote Sensing?
Images provide spatial information that individual points cannot, thus allowing the user to understand regional trends or variations in a particular parameter (such as water leaks, plant counts or even the distribution of contaminants. Certain sensors can also record information that is invisible to the human eye.
Imagery can help boost the bottom line.
Imagery contains more information than meets the eye, especially when using multispectral data.
Each part of the visible spectrum is reflected by different plants under different conditions. The intensity of different colors is determined by how much water or nutrients have been absorbed by the plant.
Water, for example, absorbs the red and infrared (IR) part of the spectrum more than blue light which causes water to heat up. If a plant absorbs too much infrared light, internal water will heat up and stress the plant.
