On the left: The ideal aerial photograph - shadow-free with excellent sun position. On the right: This is not how it should be looking. Such aerial images fail the quality check.
GeoFly's aerial image flight offers the basis for a variety of aerial image products and customer applications in various industries. From the environmental sector to city and municipal administration and the energy industry, high-quality aerial images are an indispensable tool for planning and inventory.
Excellent weather conditions form the basis for aerial images. The ideal aerial image flight takes place at a cloudless sky. If there is no cloudless sky, it is also possible to fly under clouds depending on the flight altitude and with consistent cloud cover. The big advantage of flying under cloud cover is that there is no or almost no visible shadow formation. Therefore the image material has a constant brightness and is the ideal basis for digitalization.
Depending on customer requirements and the season, other parameters such as foliage and the position of the sun are also taken into account. An optimal position of the sun reduces the formation of shadows by objects, but the requirements for the flight realization increase. Thus, in addition to perfect weather parameters, a limited time window is added. The higher the position of the sun, the smaller the time window for the flight.
However, the result of our efforts in flight planning and flight realization is impressive: high-quality digital aerial images that optimally meet the application requirements.
