Aerial mapping

This consists of all the geo-referenced images taken during the flight being stitched together to create one large image.

Precise Geo-referenced Orthomosaic

This can be beneficial to clients who require up to date aerial photos of a site or location. These images are supplied with a ground resolution of up to 3cm per pixel which is considerably more detailed than standard purchased aerial images which are often 12.5cm per pixel resolution. This is often due to the flight altitude at which the images were taken. Our maximum operating height is 400ft (121.92m) compared to images commercially pre-flown where the operation height is often as high as 4000ft (1219.2m). These images are often out of date especially when an area is under development.

Oblique Imagery

The eBee was designed for mapping missions but it is also capable of capturing oblique images. These oblique images can be taken to complement a mapping project or it can simply be an amazing shot of a target/ point of interest located within the same area as the flight plan. These images can be taken with up to 45º inclination from the chosen photo target and all of this possible without the need for a camera gimbal.

Practical applications of aerial surveys

  • Land & Mineral – quarries, open-cast mines and landfill sites
  • Energy – wind farms
  • Agricultural – forestry, crop and bog monitoring
  • Infrastructure – roads and waterways
  • Environmental – contaminated and flooded land monitoring
  • Architecture – urban planning
