Aerial photography

The company MagneticOne Municipal Technologies offers aerial photography services by means of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Description of the service

Aerial photography is one of the most productive methods of collecting spatial information, the basis for creating topographical plans and maps, construction of 3D models of the land and location. Aerial photography allows you to obtain static images of a large segment of the surface of the earth in the form of an aerial photo. That is why it is irreplaceable during geographic and hydrographic exploration, land and forestry works, construction and agriculture. If traditional mapping photo shoot creates an image of the land gradually (“from point to the point”), the aerial photography uses aerial images that are fully automated.

 

Stages and results of the aerial photography

Aerial photography includes aerial photography, photo laboratory periods and field photogrammetric work. In order to get a complete photo image of a plot of land, the aero photo shoot is performed on straight-line parallel routes with a partial overlapping neighboring aerial photography of one route (longitudinal overlap) or adjacent routes (transverse overlap), which allows determining spatial coordinates of the land points.

The aerial photography is an intermediate stage in the creation and provision of source information of cartographic and GIS materials and allows getting the following spatial data:

  • topographic maps and plans in scale from 1:500 to 1:5000;
  • digital relief models with an accuracy of up to 0.5 m;
  • high-resolution orthophoto maps, layers for geoinformation systems and corresponding thematic loads of different formats;
  • virtual (3D) topographic models created on the basis of the combination of the above data.

Use aerial photography results for the development of construction projects, land surveying and cadastral works, environmental research, geological exploration and assessment of real estate status. Get unique opportunities for intensifying works and optimal usage of human and material resources.
