Topographical Mapping

Topographic mapping from stereo aerial photography is the primary function of Photo Geodetic. Today’s 3-dimensional digital topographic mapping is a much more versatile product and can be manipulated in various software packages to create base data for a wide variety of applications.

UAS Mapping

When using a UAS technology, we are able to fly and collect high quality data. We can generate data for orthophotos, 3D Mapping, and point clouds with great accuracy. Ideal for smaller sites drone photography enables the mapping at levels of detail never before imagined.


Digital Orthophotos

Using Trimble's Inpho Suite software, aerial photography is corrected for distortion using the digital terrain modeling (DTM) data produced in the mapping phase. The photos are corrected for both horizontal and vertical distortion and can be used as an overlay to the mapping using a variety of software options.
