Aerial Photography

CK Aerial Surveys operates high-end digital aerial cameras which are integrated with the company's airborne LiDAR systems.

For most mapping applications, the cameras used are 100-megapixel iXU-R1000 cameras produced by Phase One in Frederiksberg, Denmark.

For applications in forestry, agriculture and environmental assessment, the 80-megapixel multispectral RCD30 is used which is produce by Leica Geosystems in Heerbrugg, Switzerland.

The images from these medium-format cameras are overlaid on the DTM produced by the airborne LiDAR systems. Through the processes of aerial triangulation and ortho-rectification, high-resolution orthophoto mosaics are created at very high spatial accuracy and integrity.
