Aerial map types

A wide range of maps with the same drone

Orthomosaic maps

Orthomosaic map on the shores of Lake Biel
Wingtra's customer Geoplan Team uses orthomosaic maps to maintain and organize the merger of vineyards in Western Switzerland.

2D orthomosaic maps contain the location (exact X and Y coordinates) and color information of each point on the map. These aerial maps can be used for linear (distance) and surface calculations as well as alteration monitoring.

3D reconstruction

3D data can be turned into 3D models, point clouds, digital surface and terrain models, elevation maps, photorealistic reconstructions and more. These high-resolution aerial imagery outcomes provide volume, distance, surface area and elevation calculations used in mining operation planning, stockpile inventories, typography depiction and generating photorealistic models.

Multispectral imagery

WingtraOne’s RedEdge-MX camera option collects multispectral data that can be turned into chlorophyll maps, NDVI layers, digital surface models or RGB single images. A resultant high-resolution aerial view map can be used for monitoring plant health and vigor, as well as evaluating surface properties, water flow and much more.

Single images / orthophotos

Single image of Dugong
A marine research group from Murdoch University is using the WingtraOne to collect single images over a vast region in the ocean. This information is used to monitor Dugongs, which are listed as threatened sea mammals. Research based on this high-quality aerial imagery ensures their better protection.

Single aerial pictures collected by the WingtraOne are used in various research areas. Combined with machine learning algorithms, individual aerial photos can transport massive amounts of information.

What our customers say

The results are stunning. The processing was obviously time consuming but the output clearly demonstrates the capability of drone mapping on a large scale.
