Drone data and imagery for architects, builders and contractors.

We specialize in shooting and editing aerial drone photos of commercial properties and residential real estate to create valuable data for architects and contractors.

An orthomosaic is a large, map-quality image made by combining aerial photos that have been orthorectified, or corrected for lens distortion, camera tilt, perspective, and topographic relief.

Our drone photography can be used to create high-resolution 2D maps and 3D models. We can create orthomosaics and 3D models from aerial photographs, allowing you to measure distance, area, and volume from your maps.

We can cover everything from choosing the right property to accurately surveying the terrain to creating postconstruction marketing images using drones. Having access to high-quality photographs of the entire property at the project’s outset is critical for identifying the best location to establish the contractor’s laydown areas.

Our drones can use photogrammetry to produce a 3D topographical map of the property to help understand its layout. By identifying the high and low spots early on, we can save time by quickly leveling and developing the entire site.

Drones for Commercial and Residential Real Estate Development Marketing

This technology is an incredible tool for commercial and residential real estate professionals.

The FAA has streamlined a waiver process for individuals and businesses interested in using drones for commercial purposes. So-called Section 333 waivers are already in use by dozens of realtors and other operators currently using drones for their business.

Most widely agreed that the use of drones for commercial purposes will only grow with time, even as issues related to safety, privacy, insurance and the regulatory framework continue to evolve. They advised the audience about the importance of hiring approved operators with strong risk management practices, insurance coverage and, most importantly, a Section 333 waiver from the FAA.
