Orthorectified Panoramas and PhotogrammetryAerial Façade Mapping and Data Collection (FISP / LOCAL 11 NYC)

Daylight and thermal façade inspection and mapping using drone and aerostat platforms.

Orthomosaics and Photogrammetry

We can map large outdoor areas for preliminary survey and documentation needs. By designing a capture strategy for our aerial platforms and pairing it with high-end stitching photogrammetry software, we can produce high-resolution orthomosaics, 3D models, point clouds. While these are usually captured with a daylight camera, we can also capture these with an thermal (IR) camera.

– We Travel to NYC to conduct building surveys and inspections.
– No Drone Zone? No Problem! We can operate where drones cannot with our surveillance aerostat.
– We design a mapping strategy with sufficient overlap and resolution to allow for QEWI to conduct inspection.
– Imagery is placed in a photogrammetric mosaic to allow for easy location identification

Mapping with 360° Footage

while our 360° camera payload is often designed for capturing a future development’s views, it can also be utilized to quickly and efficienctly scan nearby facades. Note that our camera cluster is made up of three 35mm full-frame cameras, each with multiple times the resolution of many of the best drone sensors on the market.

AERIAL PHOTOGRAMMETRYOrthorectified Façade Maps

the same platforms that we use to create beautiful marketing imagery can also be used to capture and generate high-resolution point clouds and 3D models using photogrammetry software. Whether it is a vertical façade of a skyscraper for NYC Local law 11 or a ground plane that you need surveyed, we have you covered.
– Note that each point cloud vertice can be back-traced to each individual image component that has that point visible.

Infrared (IR) Rooftop and Façade Scanning

Using the highest commercially available resolution infrared camera, Digital Design & Imaging Service can effectively provide a thermal audit of the exterior envelope of a building. By using drones, aerostats, or manned aircraft, DDIS can provide a quick, safe, and cost-effective means of capturing high-resolution, radiometric, IR imagery and data. DDIS will design and implement a custom IR capture strategy for each building envelope we analyze. This often means dividing the facades and roof into sections, which are then documented with thermal imaging and visible spectrum photography.
