Safe, accurate and reliable aerial data capture and processing

Aerial Survey and Mapping Services

Altitude Imaging provides aerial survey, mapping and GIS services using a range of professional drones and sensors.
We safely capture high quality aerial data and with a suite of post processing options we deliver valuable spatial information.

We partner with experienced and licenced surveyors and work as a seamless, integrated team to produce accurate and timely data sets.

Our reliable and proven workflows incorporating step by step quality checks and ground truthing to ensure data integrity.

We understand your requirements and tailor solutions utilising the right drone, sensor and software combination to deliver outstanding results.

Our team delivers high-resolution data sets in either unprocessed or fully processed formats with quality reports.


We use aerial survey techniques to conduct detailed inspections of pipelines, power distribution networks and other assets to a GSD of 0.2 cm
