3D Model of Aerial Drone Mapping


We utilize innovative 3-D mapping software designed to process aerial imagery from our UAS into high quality, 3-D, interactive, scalable models. Do you require a detailed Geographical Informational System (GIS) map, volumetric measurements for mining, as-built drawings or measurements of roofs?  Our 3D mapping solutions will provide a detailed, accurate representation of current conditions.

Thermal Drone Solar Field


Easily and efficiently capture thermal images of roofs or solar arrays.  By capturing temperature differentials on roofs thermal images can uncover problem areas to identify heat loss or moisture damage before severe damage can occur.  Solar panel damage and inefficiencies can be quickly identified, therefore boosting efficiency and cost savings.
