Resolutions Available and Typical Flight Times

*Flight times vary based on large terrain elevation changes, obstacles, and prevailing wind speeds 


High Resolution:  2 - 3 cm/pixel GSD - Collected at 140ft. Above Ground Level (AGL)

Flight time* needed to map per 100 Acres: 70 Minutes


Medium Resolution:  3.5 - 4.5 cm/pixel GSD - Collected at 280ft. AGL
Flight time* needed to map per 100 Acres: 35 Minutes


Low Resolution: 5 - 7 cm/pixel GSD - Collected at 400ft. AGL
Flight time* needed to map per 100 Acres: 25 Minutes

- Aerial Mapping -

NWB FAA 333 Exemption 13933

UAS collected aerial imagery. Resolution is given in terms of how many centimeters each pixel in the photo represents (cm/px). This is the Ground Sampling Distance (GSD). The lower the number the higher the resolution.

Global Accuracy

Global accuracy of orthographic imagery provided is dependent upon the number and accuracy of Ground Control Points (GCPs). We ask clients to provide at least 5 GCPs in the area to be mapped however we can arrange to have GCPs recorded.


 In absence of GCPs, our global accuracy is typically 1-3 meters x,y and 5-7 meters z using our Unmanned Aircraft's onboard GPS.
