Frequently Asked Questions
What is aerial imagery?
An image taken from an airborne craft such as a drone or plane. Types of aerial imagery include vertical, low oblique, and high oblique.
What is satellite imagery?
Images taken using a series of electronic scanners incorporated in satellites that orbit the Earth. Types of satellite imagery include visible, infrared, and water vapor.
What is the difference between aerial imagery and satellite imagery?
Aerial images capture finer details, the capture process is more time and cost-efficient, and they can be used for a wide range of industries - including construction, insurance, real estate, and urban planning.
Satellite imagery captures a wider area, making it perfect for larger scientific applications. Its quality can, however, be compromised by atmospheric and weather conditions.
