Produce detailed maps by stitching hundreds or thousands of photos together to create one large, detailed image.
Model the terrain in software to aid route planning, navigation, building, drainage, and more.
Create a Digital Surface Model (DSM) of an area to display 3D depth in 2D form.
Create full 3D digital surface elevation models in just a few clicks to give you a detailed elevation view of an area.
Automatically display contours at varying configurable heights on your orthophoto, digital surface or digital terrain models.
Create 3D point clouds to give you a true 3D view of an area, or export them to other software for further analysis.
Use Ground Control Points (GCP) to detail where your photos are in relation to true ground producing survey-grade accuracy results. We support both Lat/Long and WGS84 formats (including zones).
We’ve created a GCP interface that’s exceptionally easy to use. Choose a point on an image, then a point on the Map, either by clicking on writing in coordinates. It couldn’t be easier!
Create 2D Elevation Profiles from 3D models to clearly see shapes, contours, gradients, undulations and more.
Add a photographic texture with the click of a button to a 3D point cloud for a full 3D model of an area in high detail.
Measure distances, heights, areas and angles in 3D space.
Measure distances, areas and volumes of aggregate and fuel stockpiles, terrain, buildings and more.
Get a fast and general view of the health of your fields and crops without expensive equipment or software using VARI or NVDI analysis (coming very soon).
Export data in a variety of formats, including GeoTIFF, PNG, LAS (LAZ), MBTiles, and more

This is the number of images that you can run in a single survey, though you can run several surveys at the same time as we don’t have any limits on concurrent surveys. You can also run as many surveys as you like in a month – there is no limit. We also don’t limit you to 2500 images a month like other image processing companies do; it’s all you can eat at AeroSurvey.
There are several apps that you can use, depending on the aircraft that you have. There are a lot of app options for DJI drones, some examples include:
Other drones or aircraft may have their own planning software, so you should check with the manufacturer or contact us if you’re unsure.
You can also manually take photos of an area from above, though typically these are less reliable inputs as the photo overlaps are not always consistent.
After sign-up, all plans come with a 30-day money back guarantee. If you cancel, all that we ask is for you to tell us why we didn’t meet your expectations so that we’re able to improve our ongoing service and offerings (and hopefully win you back in the future).
We can and have processed datasets of over 12,000 images in a single survey before. We’d love to help you with whatever you have. Contact us through the form below to discuss how we can help you.
60% overlap both front and side is the minimum for a reliable reconstruction. If you’re interested in the 3D reconstruction more than Digital Elevation Models then you should be using over 80% overlap for the 3D best results. Generally, the higher the overlap, the more detailed the results, though with increased overlap you’ll generate more photos, cover less area and processing times will be longer. We’re recommend that you try several different overlaps with your drone and compare the results.
Modelling is an extremely computationally expensive process. We employ several huge servers with massive amounts of CPU and RAM to speed things up, but things do still take a while even with that. As a general guide for high resolution photos, processing takes roughly 1 hour per 1000 photos. So expect a high resolution survey of 1200 photos to take approximately 12 hours to produce all elements, including an Orthophoto, a Digital Surface Model, a Digital Terrain Model, and a 3D Model.
