RESIDENTIAL/COMMERICAL REAL ESTATE
Make your listings stand out with high-resolution, aerial images or ultra high-definition video (according to MLS statistics, homes with aerial images sell 68 percent faster).
Wow clients with 3D site & structure modeling.
Use geo-referenced, annotated maps to show potential buyers nearby features & amenities.
More affordable than aerial images from full-sized aircraft.
Safer/more efficient than using ground personnel for surveys/inspections/reports.
More frequent, complete and up-to-date data for project management/progress reports.
Generate architectural overlays, 3D site & structure modeling.
Volumetric measurements (useful for monitoring stockpiles of costly resources like gravel and sand).
4K ultra high-definition cameras provide more precise details (i.e. cracks/corrosion) from above.
Surveying and Aerial Mapping
Fully automated, safer, cost-effective inspections of pipelines, flare stacks, topside, under deck, splash zones, etc. (and no down-time/shut-down).
Oil spill measurements.
Insurance & Claims
Economical and safe way to do costly inspections for claims and risk evaluation.
Agriculture / Ranching / Environmental
Cut costs, increase yields with more precise, timely data via aerial mapping.
More accurately assess crop health/damage (near-infrared/NDVI).
Plan irrigation & drainage repair.
Crop scout to detect parasites, fungus.
Compile plant counts/analyze plant establishments.
Generate better variable rate prescriptions.
Safer, quicker, automated field inspections.
More precise, cost-effective assessment of maintenance needs.
LiDAR-generated topographic point cloud surveys for mapping out power lines.
High-resolution aerial imaging capturing the smallest risks in grid components.
Quick assessment of storm/disaster damage.
Thermal imaging detection of loose connections.
3D maps of nearby vegetation.
Tower inspections (LiDAR/topographic point clouds).
Network optimization ahead of large-scale events.
Military / Law Enforcements / First Responser
Search & rescue (thermal imaging).
