The Technology
Aerial Camera
Since the inception of Geomaps we have constantly improved the sensor technology used for its aerial survey and currently we own a medium format digital camera, the Applanix DSS 439, a leader in its class integrated with the Applanix PosAV system and Track Air FMS.  The camera is an end to end solution and can be used in differing techniques depending on accuracy requirements.  Namely image processing using a traditional aerial triangulation using ground control or rapid response processing using direct georeferencing.

Aerial Survey Aircraft
Using Cessna 182 and other like Cessna 206 Turbo we are able to operate and do most of aerial surveys, the C206T is used for high altitude surveys and has an 18” hatch and is also used around the region for aerial surveys
