Data Processing

Using next generation aerial imaging processing software from Pix4d we can generate map accurate, fully orthorectified and mosaicked aerial imagery and Digital Surface Models with LiDAR-like 3D precision for 3D models!

Individual images are available on site as soon as flying is completed and fully processed outputs are available within a couple of days.

Output formats include ECW, GeoTIFF and KML, which we can project to WGS84, OSGB or other projections.
