Aerial Photography

Vertical Mapping Resources teams with a select group of aerial photography providers in order to provide a diverse fleet of planes and equipment that have the capabilities to efficiently perform on any project, within any geographic location in the United States. The majority of our projects are flown using single and twin-engine Cessna aircraft equipped with state-of-the-art precision photogrammetric cameras, each equipped with forward motion compensation (FMC). FMC is a camera function that compensates for the perceived movement of the earth below. This significantly reduces blurring and results in the sharpest photographic image possible.

An example of the benefits of utilizing a multi-functional fleet was recently seen in the successful completion of three flights simultaneously in three different states in the U.S. Realizing that weather was going to hinder the window of opportunity in which we are able to capture the photography, VMR was able to fly projects in Utah, California and Arizona all in the same day.
