Aerometrex designed aerial camera system
Aerometrex owns its own in-house designed & developed camera system known as MetroCam. It is designed to offer greater efficiency & quality, promising multi-fold benefits in the form of increased resolution, unmatched colour quality, larger area coverages, and more frequent captures. This camera system enables Aerometrex to control a much greater degree of the supply and maintenance costs of these sophisticated aerial camera systems, as well as representing a significant technological advance.
Other aerial camera systems
Aerometrex also uses Vexcel Imaging’s Ultracam large-format aerial mapping cameras as well as Visionmap’s A3 Edge very large-format digital camera. All provide reliable high-quality imagery with efficiency and accuracy. The Ultracam large format digital aerial cameras are set up with the SOMAG3000 gyro-stabilised mount and IGI Inertial Motion Unit (IMU) to capture exceptional quality, near-vertical, 4-band imagery. We also have an outstanding oblique imagery capability using the MIDAS-5 camera as well as a range of medium-format and DSLR camera systems.
Other Equipment and Data Processing Software
Aerometrex operates three Riegl VQ-780i for ultra-wide area mapping and high productivity coupled with a 100MP digital camera as well as one Trimble Harrier H68i coupled with an 80MP digital camera.
Aerometrex uses the high-end photogrammetric software suite INPHO from Germany and Lightspeed from Visionmap for image data processing.
Aerometrex is a valued participant of every State and Federal Government Panel of Aerial Imagery Providers, and routinely performs major Government contracts to a very high standard. The company’s services are also in heavy demand by many private sector industries with projects executed & delivered across Australia, New Zealand, USA, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and South East Asia.
Aerometrex has conducted major aerial imagery programs in Australia for Microsoft, with its Bing Maps Ultracam Osprey oblique camera program for every Australian capital city, and for Google Earth, with its Australia/NZ Cities 3D mapping program. Some of the largest aerial surveys undertaken in Australia have been acquired and processed by Aerometrex. These include the Galilee Basin survey of 115,000 sq. km. for the Queensland Government, the Western Victoria aerial survey of 73,500 sq. km. for the Victorian Government, and a series of cross-continental linear corridor surveys of 9,000 km for Visionstream Pty Ltd.
