Titletown Drones offers a variety of drone mapping services. We can provide high resolution orthomosiac maps, viewable on nearly any PC, Mac or tablet equipped with an Internet browser. Our pilots are FAA certified, insured and experienced.
How can aerial mapping help increase efficiency?
Ground level analysis is labor intensive, time consuming and lacks the detail which is often required in large projects. Aerial photos can can provide a better perspective but they too have their shortcomings. Aerial photos generally depict a panoramic view of land parcels. Panoramic photos may be useful in providing a general overview of the land but lack fine detail which can reveal topographical features such as depressions, drainage problems, stressed crops, streams and erosion.
An aerial map provides much greater detail than a panoramic photo. This is accomplished by using a drone to take hundreds of images of a predefined area. The drone is autonomously piloted with the use of sophisticated software which precisely executes the mapping mission. The drone will take hundreds of high resolution photos, each one embedded with GPS data. At the conclusion of the flight the photos are uploaded to a server where they are analyzed and assembled into one contiguous image. This image is called an orthomosaic map. As a client you would be provided a highly detailed map in standard file formats such as GeoTIFF, JPEG and PDF.
The GeoTIFF file retains geographical information that was recorded when the photos were taken, making it possible to identify the exact location of features and details on the map. It is also possible to utilize web based tools to measure the distance between points and create annotations. You can import the GeoTiff file into standard tools like Arcmap, allowing you to view and and overlay the image onto ArcGIS systems.
Using Orthomosiac maps to assist in wetland delineation
Wetland delineators can expedite their work by using high resolution aerial maps to refine their analysis. If you are conducting this sort of analysis, you’ll detect ares of interest more easily. This will allow you to assess land more quickly and more efficiently. Aerial maps can provide valuable information in addition to your ground level analysis.
