Remote sensing and GIS have been mainstays of Earth Design Consultants, Inc. since the company was formed in the mid 1990s. We have successfully used aerial photography, airborne imaging spectrometers, and satellite images to assess subtidal, wetland, and forested vegetation. We are extremely pleased to add aerial images, captured by low altitude UAVs, to our toolbox.
Our UAV pilots are fully compliant with FAA regulations. Most of our pilots also hold Private Pilot certificates.
Use of UAVs allow precise control of image acquisition with respect to flood stage, tide, cloud cover, and sun angle.
We understand that equipment can and does fail. We mobilize our field teams with backup equipment to make sure that we get your data the first time.
We have been providing scientific assessment and mapping for ecosystems for more than two decades.
