Aerial Data for Every Major City
Access to real ground truth starts from above with the ability to capture reality in remarkably sharp resolution. Vexcel flies regularly across major urban areas of Germany, including Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, Essen and more. Aerial imagery is collected using award-winning camera sensor technology. That aerial data is then put through a rigorous production process to produce imagery that is 16 times clearer than satellite imagery. It’s a complete end-to-end technology solution offering compelling location content to help you plan your projects with confidence.
Urban & Wide area collections
7.5cm resolution for urban areas
Get a better view with ultra-high-resolution Oblique imagery in urban areas across Germany. It helps you see the world from multiple viewpoints, giving you the ability to virtually tour a property or location with ease. Get access to all four cardinal directions–north, south, east, west–to improve your perspective and understanding of a location.
Delivered at a resolution of 7.5cm, imagery is matched against ground control points in a lossless compression format where the integrity of each pixel is maintained and is accurate to within a two-pixel standard deviation. This results in incredible detail with valuable metadata you can extract from the image directly or integrate into powerful analytics platforms.
True Ortho imagery takes ground truth one step further by helping to bring the real world into view with consistency and unmatched accuracy.
Our True Ortho imagery is matched against our Digital Surface Model, to create a more accurate top-down view of urban areas. This means you get imagery with no visible seamlines or parallax (building lean), all delivered at a resolution of 7.5cm.
Get outside of city limits and see wide, rural areas across Germany with Ortho aerial imagery. It’s high-resolution data that was made for measuring. Pull up a site or structure and calculate the area or measure distances between objects.
With Ortho imagery, you get a more complete picture of larger areas at scale, more than a drone could capture and higher resolution than satellite imagery. It’s a better view to help improve your site or location knowledge.
Activate deeper imagery analysis by bringing the unseeable into view with our Multispectral aerial data. Near-infrared (NIR) imagery is collected during our regular captures and is processed and delivered as Color-infrared (CIR).
This colorized form of imagery highlights details that can’t be seen with the naked eye. It helps viewers quickly categorize vegetation and other surfaces, helping identify plant health, soil moisture, water clarity, and wetland mapping. It’s extremely valuable data for monitoring environmental changes.
Elevate: DSM & DTM
Take your 3D visualization to new heights with our Elevate products: Digital Surface Model (DSM) and Digital Terrain Model (DTM). With DSM/DTM data, you can transform your workflows with a stronger context and deeper understanding of the earth’s surface and structures on that surface. DSM data provides a 3D view of objects that sit on the earth’s surface. DTM shows the bare earth with objects removed. Plus, our DSM data has a perfect pixel-to-data match with our True Ortho and Multispectral imagery, creating perfect spatial alignment between elevation data and imagery for a more consistent, trusted output.
When the forces of the ever-changing climate create catastrophic weather events, Vexcel is uniquely positioned to help respond to such disasters. As the operations partner for the Geospatial Insurance Consortium, Vexcel collects the aftermath of hurricanes, tornados, wildfires, and flooding. Recently, disaster imagery in Germany was collected for the massive flooding in 2021 and the tornados that touched down in May 2022. Because Vexcel has historical imagery as well, emergency managers and insurers can compare and contrast what changed on a property with pre- and post-catastrophe aerial imagery.
