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

Check out some of our recent news & publications on the topic of unmanned aerial imagery for GIS
Come visit see us at these upcoming events!
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. That is what we do and we would love to help you!More about UAS for GIS
HD Imagery for GIS
UAS used to be exclusive to the military and law enforcement, but that has all changed. Since drones can fly much lower than manned aircraft, they can capture GIS-ready HD imagery. Resolution of 1-2" is easily obtainable and turn-around time is now hours, not weeks or months, as is the case with manned aerial photography.

3D Point Clouds for GIS
To visualize terrain, generate elevation contours or perform volumetric calculations, 3D geospatial models are needed. 3D point cloud data is a by-product of the ortho-imagery process of UAS aerial photography. The resolution of the 3D data rivals ground-based LiDAR at a fraction of the price and the results are simply stunning.

Flightline Video for GIS
More than just moving pictures, Flightline Video is geospatial content captured from either manned or unmanned aerial platforms. The resulting 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
GIS users and others can directly access image services from the desktop, or while in the field via wireless tablets and smart phones. Non-GIS professionals can access the imagery via web-based map viewer. So yes, you CAN take it with you!
