2D AERIAL

DRONE MAPPING

One of the main use cases for a 2D Aerial Survey is simply to get an updated view of a large area of land or building. Google Earth is helpful, but often the imagery is outdated. Your new project could be finished, new construction projects could be underway, or the landscape could have changed from last satellite images. Documenting a project is also very important and having that data can be invaluable. This is where we can help.

Capture

We Capture RGB, thermal or multispectral images with our cameras. We can also use a drone, automate flight and image-data transfer.

Digitize

We transform these images into real time orthomosaic maps ready for your inspection and annotation. 

Control

Assessing and improving the quality of your project. The quality report gives a preview of the generated results, calibration details, and many more project quality indicators.

Measure & Inspect

Measure distances, areas, and volumes. Extract elevation profile data and perform virtual inspections.

Collaborate & Share

Streamline project communication and teamwork. Selectively and securely share project data and insights with your team, clients, and suppliers.

What Is a 2D Survey / Orthomosaic Map?

Our 2d Surveys produce what is called The term orthomosaic map and they can be used in many different industries.

But what is an orthomosaic map, and how are people actually using them in the field?

An orthophoto, orthophotograph or orthoimage is an aerial photograph geometrically corrected (“orthorectified”) such that the scale is uniform: the photo has the same lack of distortion as a map. Unlike an uncorrected aerial photograph, an orthophotograph can be used to measure true distances, because it is an accurate representation of the Earth’s surface, having been adjusted for topographic relief, lens distortion, and camera tilt.

Put simply, an orthomosaic map is a detailed, accurate photo representation of an area, created out of many photos that have been stitched together and geometrically corrected (“orthorectified”) so that it is as accurate as a map.

How are people using orthomosaic maps in the field?

Construction

Orthomosaic maps can help provide detailed updates on the progress of a construction project, since they allow you to zoom in and see different parts of the building(s) under construction, as well as related resources.

Here is an image taken from an orthomosaic map of a hospital that is under construction:

Conservation

Orthomosaic maps can help conservationists in their efforts in a number of ways by providing a detailed, accurate map of the conditions in a given area.

Mapping forests and their growth, sand dunes and their movements, or the level of water in an area that houses a protected species of birds—these are all examples of how ortho maps are being used in the field when it comes to conservation.

Demolition

Demolition companies are using otrhomoszaic maps to better evaluate projects

  • Mapping building and areas to help better plan how to carry out a safe demolition.

  • Being able to access hard to get to areas and obtain data that would have been previously impossible or extremely cost prohibitive.

  • Mapping can decrease the hazards that are taken when surveying and mapping a demolition, a drone can see and map a building that for example is fire damaged without having to use cranes and scaffolding..

  • Being able to map and keep track of a demolition over a period of time. Allowing for better time management and valuable project documentation.

Police and Fire Departments

Police and fire departments are using orthomosaic maps in several ways:

  • Mapping highly frequented locations in cities, such as shopping centres and public buildings. In the event of an emergency incident, fire, or other disaster that would require an evacuation or some kind of response, these maps can help responders better understand the specific situation they’ll be facing when they arrive on the scene, and prepare themselves accordingly.

  • Documenting crime scenes. Sometimes there isn’t enough time to fully comb a crime scene in person, and even if you do, you might miss something. An orthomosaic map allows investigators to look back over a crime scene after they’ve left.

  • Mapping after disasters. Orthomosaic maps can provide detailed accounts of the damage in a given location so that responders can understand what they are walking into, and accurately assess the damage done to the infrastructure and surrounding area.

  • Mapping the scene of an accident allows investigators to see an aerial image at the time of the investigation and also being able to work with a fully measurable highly detailed map.
