Our aerial cameras can show the results from an inspection of electric transmission facilities to the point that you know this pole needs some attention.

These images show a unique use of aerial infrared photography - used to identify and locate areas of water-logged railbed as displayed using bright yellow and green associated with subsurface water to support railroad maintenance applications.  The dark purple and dark blue colors identify surface water in a slight depression.

Continuous overlapping geo-referenced aerial oblique imagery coverage of a pipeline, electric power transmission, roadway, waterway or other corridor is much like documenting the route using a slow frame-rate video camera.  The far-right image in the photo gallery above utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) technology to identify objects (red box identifies the presence of a particular type of transmission structure) within individual frames and to count them.  Since each frame is geo-referenced, the identified object(s) can be located in support of a support a number of change management applications.

IGS provides aerial photography of many types to support client's applications - from engineering to public relations and training.

We often carry our thermal remote sensing instruments with our ortho photography cameras to identify and locate "lost" and/or leaking pipelines or tanks - an environmental hazard.  The imagery is used to show (or map) the contents of the pipeline and leak plume which are likely at a different temperature than the surrounding environment.  This technique can be applied to oil, gas, CO2, water, and sewer pipelines.

These images show the application of oblique aerial photography - continuous (time interval), overlapping, high-resolution and geo-referenced frame photographs.

The following four short YouTube video clips illustrate four different uses (visualization) of 3D FODAR point cloud models.  Each of these models is geometrically and geographically correct.  A unique "flight path" was created through each of these models to be able to visualize the models as if one were flying through the model scene. In effect, as if one were recording the flight using video technology even though no video cameras were used. 

The models were created by processing aerial digital photographs using a commercial Structure-from-Motion (SfM) software.  When the video clip finishes playing, click the browser "back" arrow to return to the beginning.

These images depict traditional high-resolution orthography used to create geo-mosaic maps.
