High-resolution camera to collect 20 megapixel aerial photographs.
Aerial Drone Mapping
Mapping with Drones, aeronauts fly our drones (UAV’s) with a high-resolution camera to collect 20 megapixel aerial photographs for a wide variety of commercial photogrammetry mapping uses. We can measure and map hard to reach areas like, quarries, landfill sites.
The flight altitude and image overlap is determined by the type of industry and the results required. We fly at a consistent height in a lawnmower path with the overlap of images normally set at 75-80% for most jobs.
2D orthophotography can be used to measure real distances, because it is an accurate representation of the Earth’s geographic surface.
The overlapping geo-referenced aerial images are stitched together in the software to produce a 2D Orthomosaic – 2D photo-mosaic.
Using this information combined with additional oblique side images taken at 30° and 45 ° angles the software can also produce a 3D model that can be viewed from any side or orientation. These 2D and 3D maps can be compared to older and newer versions to record change and calculate length, area, volume, cut/fill, and elevation between two or more dates
