Aerial Survey of Creek for Aerial Imaging and GIS Mapping

Posted on November 18, 2015 in Aerial Imaging Projects

Navigator CS, LLC flew its Inspire 1 UAS to conduct an aerial survey of a densely-wooded area in order to perform the aerial imaging and GIS mapping of a portion of a creek. The objective of this flight was to assist our customer, a land surveyor, with establishing the banks and centerline of the creek as a property boundary.  To comply with the FAA requirement that we maintain visual line of sight (VLOS) of the aircraft at all times, we flew the UAS from a man lift which put us above the trees (to see a photo of our flight crew on the man lift, click on: Flight crew on man lift-2015).  Following the flight, we used the aerial photos of the area of interest to produce a Geo-Reference Ortho-Mosaic file in TIFF Format. A picture of this Ortho-Mosaic can be seen at Creek Ortho-Mosaic-2015
