Let your drone do drone things.
For high resolution aerial mapping, drones are perfect. Repeatable, accurate flight makes a drone the ideal flight platform for near-ground image acquisition. The combination of today's high resolution cameras and inexpensive flying devices enables mapping at levels of detail never before imagined.

By precisely controlling the flight pattern, flight speed and camera frame rate, it is possible to achieve perfect coverage and overlap. Plenty of overlap and nadir (straight down) images are the key components to collecting great data and making great maps.
Today's cutting edge, cloud-based image processing technologies put supercomputing just an upload away. These processing intensive techniques take the multiple perspectives for the survey area and convert it into a three dimensional surface which is the textured and resampled to create an accurate orthographic photo map in addition to easy-to-embed 3D models and web maps.
