Accuracy, Resolution, Quality. How we go beyond your expectations.

High Resolution

The most important quality of imagery is resolution. Our standard processing is 0.25 meters per pixel with a 24 hour guaranteed turn-around time. With our high-resolution processing options, we have processed imagery down to 1 centimeter for drones and 3 inches (7.5 centimeters) per pixel for aircraft. 

Explore The Difference

No dataset is perfect and there are always challenges that need to be overcome when processing aerial imagery. There are three common issues when processing aerial imagery: alignment, ghosts, and artifacts. To minimize these our system uses different processing methods at different stages.

All Challenges

Individually these imperfections do not amount too much, but when they occur at the same time imagery becomes unusable.

Alignment & Accuracy

Alignment and accuracy go hand in hand. Depending on the project you may need something that prioritizing being visually appealing, but less accurate. 

The cause of these varies between aircraft, cameras, flying conditions, and the processing methods used. 

Often this occurs around the image seamlines over features above ground level which is more common among airplane imagery than drone imagery.

Ghosts

When you take images of dynamic scenes such as a road with moving cars or tall buildings, ghosting can occur.

These features will have duplicates and look semi-transparent.

Artifacts

When taking imagery of tall objects, buildings, trees, telephone poles, etc. if there is not adequate coverage you will get artifact lines around the features.
