Aerial Visual Intelligence for GIS
“GIS relies upon access to content. Flightline Geographics’ use of UAS to capture, process and deliver GIS content in near real time is a real game-changer.” Esri President Jack Dangermond
Join us for GIS Day at Williamson County (Round Rock) November 19, 2014. Presenting on UAS for GIS. Flight demonstration, weather permitting.
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)
There are many types and sizes of UAS on the market, ranging from small quadcopters to large, long-endurance fixed-wing models. For mapping, it is best to have UAS designed by GIS people, for GIS people. The entire system is performance-tuned to allow for easy project planning, capture and processing, providing the highest quality results for GIS. That is what we do. Let us help you!
HD Imagery for GIS
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS or UAVs) used to be exclusive to the military and law enforcement. That is changing. Recent advances in auto-pilot and ground control systems have made UAS a viable alternative to more expensive manned platforms. As a result, smaller projects become cost-effective and can be repeated affordably. Turn-around times are hours, not weeks or months. Since they can fly much lower, UAS can capture HD imagery for GIS.

3D Point Clouds for GIS
In order to visualize terrain, man-made features and to perform volumetric calculations, 3D geospatial models are needed. Recently, both aerial and ground-based LiDAR have provided 3D content for GIS. Now, high resolution 3D geospatial point cloud data can be captured by small, inexpensive UAS. The resolution of the 3D data rivals ground-based LiDAR at a fraction of the price.

Flightline Video for GIS
More than just moving pictures, Flightline Video is a completely new medium for geospatial analysis and visual intelligence. Captured from either manned or unmanned aerial platforms, Flightline Video provides realtime on-demand content for a variety of applications in GIS. The resulting Flightline Video not only provides realtime situational awareness, but is also a revolutionary new data capture tool for GIS!More about Flightline Video for GIS
On-Line & Cloud Delivery
Traditional data delivery on hard drives and other physical media is still standard, but web-based image services and the Cloud make delivery faster and more convenient for many users. GIS can directly access these on-line services on the desktop or in the field via mobile devices including iOS and Android tablets and smart phones. You CAN take it with you!
