Browse through these FAQ to find answer to commonly related question.
What resolutions do you offer?
2.5cm, 10cm, and 15cm
What is your accuracy?
We will be within 3 feet of ground accuracy, but we expect to be even better than that. We’re conducting 3rd party accuracy tests and will have a report outlining our true accuracy.
How fast can you collect?
Two to four weeks, weather dependent.
How much imagery can you collect?
We can collect imagery on projects as small as one square mile up to project areas encompassing thousands of square miles.
What areas do you collect imagery in?
Our service area encompasses the Lower 48 states.
How long does it take to receive my order?
Do you own your airplanes?
Yes, we do. We control the aerial imagery process from beginning to end.
Do you produce your orthoimages in house?
Yes, we control the imagery process from order to delivery.

It depends on the job, anywhere from 3,000 feet to 8,000 feet.

Are you looking for methane leaks?
It’s in our product roadmap and we are exploring the various ways to build a great product that would be able to detect leaks.
How can we get the imagery?
There are two main ways to get your imagery. Either a downloadable link, where the image would live on your computer, or a streaming link, where your imagery would be hosted on our servers and you would have access to it. File types include WMS, WMTS, KML streaming, GeoTiff, XYZ, and web-based slippy maps.
How is using a fixed wing aircraft so much cheaper than drones?
Drones have limitations that aircraft don’t have. Some states limit drones to line of sight, making drone imagery more costly and time consuming.
