Aerial Data that Drives Enhanced Decision-making
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 the United Kingdom (England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland), including the bustling cities such as London, Liverpool, Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast, to name a few. But our imagery collection doesn’t stop there; rural area captures are also refreshed for additional ground knowledge.
Our 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
Oblique imagery 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.
When it comes to accuracy and consistency, our True Ortho aerial imagery delivers, helping bring the real world into view. It’s a better way to validate ground truth with confidence.
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.
Our wide-area Ortho program captures high-resolution aerial imagery across the U.K. from a top-down perspective. The clarity and consistency of Ortho imagery provides detail at a resolution that’s up to 8x greater than satellite imagery. View entire communities and quickly identify growth areas for urban development or landscape changes such as watershed. Use measurement tools to calculate the area and length of a particular property. Trust what you see with imagery that is matched against ground control points.
Bring the unseeable into view with our Multispectral aerial data and take your imagery analysis to the next level. Near-infrared (NIR) imagery is collected during our regular captures and is processed and delivered as Color-infrared (CIR).
This colorised form of imagery highlights details that can’t be seen with the naked eye. It helps viewers quickly categorise 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
Developing urban and suburban areas through the use of 3D visualisation is made easier 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.
