Aerial data

Since 2001 we have been delivering aerial remotely sensed data using our specially adapted aircraft and sophisticated sensors.

Vertical imagery

We capture aerial imagery with spatial resolution starting from 1 cm (GSD). Type of camera, spatial and spectral (R, G, B, NIR) resolution and processing technology are always adjusted to client needs. The final product is either raw imagery or geo-referenced (orthoimagery), and can aid any photointerpretation processes

aerial imagery, aerial maps, mapping


Orthophotos are created through image processing but, unlike the aerial imagery, it is characterized by orthogonal projection and a uniform scale for the entire surface. It has cartometric attributes typical of a map and can be developed in true colour (R,G,B) or false colour composites with additional near-infrared (CIR). Apart from interpretative features, an orthophoto also allows for precise measurements of captured objects.

True ortho

The advantage of a true orthophoto over a standard orthophoto results from the lack of so called ‘building lean’. Apart from the elements on the ground, also buildings are rectified to avoid blind spots and shadows, caused by camera angle. True ortho works well with photointerpretation processes and precise measurements of tall objects.

Oblique imagery

Oblique imagery, taken in four directions at a 45-degree angle, is gaining popularity in recent years. One flight mission allows simultaneous capturing of imagery from four cameras directed north, south, east and west and Nadir. We provide both raw and geo-referenced oblique imagery, as well as oblique mosaics. This product may be used for visualisations of monuments, revitalised areas or attractive investment locations.

3D Models

Increased overlap parameters, both in the case of vertical and oblique imagery, make it possible to create 3D Mesh Models presenting realistic images of facades. Such an effect owes to stereo-matching algorithms (finding corresponding points in all aerial images), aided by LiDAR data. 3D Models lend themselves well to urban planning and management.

Laser scanning (LiDAR)

Laser scanning allows spatial measurements thanks to capturing of a laser beam reflection. This method gives us information on the structure and 3D position of registered objects. The resulting point cloud can have varied density (from several up to several dozens points/m2). Each point is rectified to a system of geodetic coordinates and then classified according to client’s desired schema. The final product may be a point cloud, DTM, DSM, 3D model or visualisation. ALS helps when you need to know the size and shape of an object or to see and model surfaces under tree canopy.

Terrain models are based on point clouds obtained during airborne laser scanning. A Digital Terrain Model (DTM) is a true representation of the terrain relief. When we supplement it with extra information about objects on the surface, we can create a Digital Surface Model (DSM). Being a universal tool, terrain models can be used for determining slope and elevation, but also for identification of landforms and discovery or inventory of archaeological objects.

Hyperspectral data

Hyperspectral scanners register numerous bands of reflected solar radiation, obtaining very detailed information on objects. We can provide a raw data, data after geometric and/or atmospheric correction, as well as mosaics of the surveyed area. Hyperspectral data offers insight into ,e.g., species found in particular plant communities, vegetation condition, soil moisture, type of minerals and rocks, or degree of water pollution.

hyperspectral data

Thermal data

Thermal imagery presents temperature of objects with regard to their emissivity, ambient temperature, relative air humidity and thermal permeability of the atmosphere. The final product is delivered in the form of: raw thermograms, thermal imagery or thermal orthophoto, which may be the basis for heat map creation or thermal diagnostics.

thermal data, thermal imagery

Light Pollution Maps

Dark skies is one of the most important properties of a good astronomical observing site. Apart from clear skies for stargazing, dark nights are essential for human beings and wild animals to sleep well, or, for some species, simply to exist. People and animals are suffering from lights in the middle of the night. Light Pollution Maps allow us to easily locate dark sites not affected by light pollution, or investigate which city lights have bad quality or are too bright.

Multisensor data

Our original multisensor aerial platform combines several sensors in one aircraft allowing simultaneous collection of several comprehensive remotely-sensed datasets. The choice of sensors (RGB, NIR or thermal cameras, ALS and hyperspectral scanners) depends on individual client needs. Multisensor data plays a crucial role in complex inventory of the environment or urban areas, as well as in advanced remote sensing analyses, whilst saving considerable amount of money on capture.

Satellite data

In our work, we try to reach higher and further, which is why we use different altitudes of image data acquisition. We supply and process satellite data, offering our clients innovative products suitable for their needs in terms of quality and costs. We work with various satellite images, both commercial and free. We have access to an extensive data archive and ability to schedule acquisition of new collections of satellite images.

Very high-resolution satellite data

Very high-resolution satellite (VHR) imagery has a spatial resolution better than 1 meter, therefore it can be a source of information similar to that offered by aerial imagery. Very high-resolution data is usually characterized by larger swaths than aerial imagery, several spectral ranges of visible, near and mid-infrared spectrum and a time resolution reaching 1-2 days of revisit. Our offer includes satellite images with a spatial resolution of 0.5 - 1 meters in PAN band and 2 - 4 meters in multispectral bands.

High-resolution satellite data

High Resolution (HR) satellite imagery achieves a spatial resolution of 1-5 meters. They are characterized by several spectral ranges of visible and near-infrared spectrum. An extensive archive of high-resolution data from multiple satellite data providers, a large number of satellites and their constellations as well as a revisit time of 1-2 days allows us to use these data in environmental monitoring. Our offer includes high-resolution satellite images in wide swaths and with a large set of spectral channels.

Satellite data of Landsat Programme

The Landsat Programme is the longest satellite mission that began in the 1970s. It is a joint research programme of NASA and the USGS, where satellite data collected during the mission is made available free of charge. The Landsat Mission has the richest archive of remote sensing data. There are currently 2 satellites in orbit - Landsat 7 and Landsat 8, which are imaging the Earth's surface at a resolution of 30-60 meters, every 16 days. A distinctive feature of these satellites is a thermal infrared band.

Radar satellite data

The main advantage of radar sensors is the ability to perform measurements regardless of daytime and weather conditions (radar waves penetrate the cloud cover). This is due to the fact that radar satellites belong to the group of active sensors - the source of electromagnetic wave emission is an antenna installed on the satellite board. Our offer includes a high-resolution radar satellite with a spatial resolution of 1 meter. On the side of free and widely available data, the radar satellite with the best parameters (pixel size, polarization options, revisit time) is Sentinel-1, which is a part of the Copernicus Programme.
