AERIAL VIEW MAP
An Aerial View Map is helpful to see a straight down vertical view of a property. The size of the property, determines the altitude it will be shot. For small sites a drone will do the job. Drones can fly parallel flight lines scanning the the property until all of it is covered. Then the data is processed in a cloud based program to analyse and assemble the final image. The individual images are captured with a predetermined overlap on the front, sides and rear of each image and each is stitched to the next until you have one seamless mosaic. The stitching process aligns each pixel from the next image. This is done with each image until all the individual images are stitched together seamlessly into one mosaic. Drones can capture such images from very small sites to several acres at which point it gets too large for the tiny drone to handle because of limited power resources on board the drone that may need several battery exchanges to do the entire job. Drones are slow and labor time consuming but inexpensive to operate. Therefore for much larger sites of several square miles and more, an aircraft is used much the same way as a drone. The aircraft is faster and can cover much larger areas with less time and many times less expense in man hours on very large areas. The aircraft images are also captured the same way with an aerial mapping camera as a drone and processed the same with aerial mapping programs to produce an Aerial View Map mosaic.
