Aerial Geospatial Data

Aerial geospatial data refers to geographic information collected from an aerial perspective, in our case, using drones. This data can include high-resolution images, 3D models, and other geospatial information such as elevation, temperature, and moisture levels.

What consumer drones can’t do

Consumer-grade drones are generally designed for recreational use. They are not built to fly far, quickly nor for a long flight duration. They are not powerful enough to carry the weight of survey-grade cameras and sensors.

Low quality data

They are not built to carry heavy payloads like high-resolution cameras and survey-grade sensors.

Shorter flight time

The average consumer drone can only cover a small area of approximately 0.8km² at 44m altitude for a maximum of 30 minutes flight time.

Lower Altitude

Most consumer drones are not able to fly as high as industrial survey-grade VTOL drones.


Expect more data per hour of flight

High Resolution

LiDAR scanning allows for higher resolution images and data accuracy than photogrammetry alone.

FURTHER and longer

Can cover an area of 7km² at 100m altitude for up to 90 minutes of flight time.

FAST and efficient

Surveying bigger areas can now be done faster, easier and more cost-efficient with AECA.

automated pilot

Remove human errors, let the robot map it out.

Sample shots

Shots from our past projects for specific applications.

high-resolution images and videos

To capture bird’s-eye view images.

3d Models and maps

Using LiDAR sensors and photogrammetry techniques to create detailed 3D models and maps.

Thermal imaging

Using thermal cameras that can detect temperature variations and identify potential issues, such as leaks or hot spots.

Spectral imaging

Using multispectral and hyperspectral cameras to capture data in different wavelength bands, which can be used to identify specific materials or detect changes in the environment.


The deliverables would depend on your specific application and the type of data you require. Typically, our process is as follows:

01. planning

Discuss with our team the scope of your project, your objectives and the type of data you require.

We will then customise a solution based on your needs.

Flight paths are also discussed at this stage once you agree with the solution we recommend.

02. Flight

If you decide to engage our services, our team will carry out the agreed flight plan to capture and collect relevant data for you.

Or if you prefer to do it yourself, we can train you how to do it.


You can engage us to process and analyse your data or you can learn from us how to do it yourself.

What is Aerial Capture and Mapping?

Aerial Capture and Mapping is the process of using drones to capture high-quality aerial imagery of an area, which is then processed to create detailed maps and 3D models.

What are some common applications of Aerial Capture and Mapping?

Aerial Capture and Mapping can be used for a variety of applications, including land surveying, construction site monitoring, urban planning, agriculture, mining, environmental monitoring, and more.

What types of drones are typically used for Aerial Capture and Mapping?

Drones used for Aerial Capture and Mapping are typically equipped with high-quality cameras, GPS systems, and other sensors to capture accurate and detailed imagery. Fixed-wing drones are often used for large-scale mapping projects, while smaller quadcopter drones are ideal for more localized mapping tasks.

How accurate are the maps generated using Aerial Capture and Mapping?

The accuracy of the maps generated using Aerial Capture and Mapping can vary depending on a number of factors, including the quality of the drone, the camera used, and the processing software. However, in general, the maps can be highly accurate, with resolution down to a few centimeters in some cases.

Are there any legal requirements for using drones for Aerial Capture and Mapping?

Yes, there are typically legal requirements that must be followed when using drones for Aerial Capture and Mapping. These can include obtaining a drone pilot license, registering the drone with the appropriate authorities, and following specific regulations regarding drone usage in your country or region.

How long does it take to complete an Aerial Capture and Mapping project?

The time required to complete an Aerial Capture and Mapping project can vary widely depending on the size and complexity of the area being mapped, as well as the quality and capabilities of the drone and processing software. However, projects can often be completed in a matter of hours or days, rather than weeks or months.

How much does it cost to use Aerial Capture and Mapping services?

The cost of Aerial Capture and Mapping services can vary depending on a number of factors, including the size and complexity of the project, the quality of the drone and processing software used, and the experience and expertise of the service provider. However, costs can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars for a single mapping project.
