Leeper Aerial focuses on technical UAS-derived photogrammetry projects providing premier quality client deliverables with high relative accuracy. 

 

PHOTOGRAMMETRY

Photogrammetry is a range-imaging technique used to derive digitally scaled models of the three-dimensional structure and form of landscapes, buildings, and other settings, from two-dimensional images acquired by UAVs or handheld cameras.

LANDSCAPE DEVELOPMENT

Photogrammetry outputs with high relative accuracy include orthomosaics and digital elevation models, from which elevation contours are derived.

SITE DOCUMENTATION & ANALYSIS

3D models with high relative accuracy and high resolution enable interpretation of ortho-imagery and derivation and analyses of linear (X, Y, and Z), areal, and volumetric site attributes, i.e., vegetation height, diameter, and area of groundcover.

Pairing and sharing high-resolution 3D models and ortho-imagery online for data and imagery interpretation and analysis with team members helps to ensure efficient workflows and reliable high-quality client deliverables.

REAL ESTATE SERVICES

If you're in the real estate business and want a unique way to show off your listings, consider Leeper Aerial! Using the same technology required for aerial land surveying and mapping, we can provide high-definition videos and 3D scans to give buyers a better idea of properties. To learn more about our real estate-specific services, visit our Real Estate Services page.

3D models (textured mesh or point cloud) with high relative accuracy are usable in architectural drafting software and provide advanced visualizations to help ensure clients are appropriately informed of final structural design plans and aesthetics.

 

VIDEO

4k video creates a permanent high-resolution digital record in amazing detail that is useful for real estate marketing, site documentation and improving understanding of finer details of a small (< 40-acres) or large (>40-acres) site. 4k video is ideal for initial reconnaissance of large sections of land in the beginning stages of site development brainstorming and planning.
