Aerial Mapping, 3d Modelling, Digital Elevation Models

Our aerial photography service goes far beyond the standard straight down aerial orthophoto or oblique image. Using a point cloud system based on RGB values we can create an accurate Digital Elevation Model and 3d terrain model of sites encluding large land areas of over several thousand sq km.

Brisbane Flooding 2011 Aerial Photography can be found here

We shot aerial photography of the Brisbane Flooding in 2011 on behalf of select councils, as well as volunteering our time and aircraft to shoot all areas damaged by floods. Our images served to access the damage to assets caused and help create a logistical plan on priority asset damage, and were also used by Googles Crisis Response website.

Whilst flying these long transits, Mike Swaine continues to work on his series titled Earths Artwork an amazing collection of aerial photos dedicated completely to the patterns, shapes, textures and colours only seen from an aircraft. This aerial landscape art of Australia is my calling and gift to the world. With over fifty thousand images in the database we have aerial photography covering all of Australia. Some of the more popular regions we have shot are the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, The Gold Coast, and Widebay Burnett.

Our offline photo library now has over 1,500,000 images and consists of every coastal city and town in Australia, with the exception of a small few. Our most searched regions include like Far North Queensland, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Northern Rivers / Subtropical NSW, Newcastle, Canberra, and Perth. Please take your time and continue checking as this rapidly growing stock library of aerial images comes to life.

With thousands of flying hours shooting the entire Australia from the humid tropics of Far North Queensland, to the crisp cold south of Hobart in Tasmania the warm subtropics of the Sunshine and Gold Coast, the dry deserts of South Australia to the aqua blue water of Western Australia. We have seen some amazing sites (you can see them all on this website!!) in this beautiful, sunburnt, lush, dry, sparse, rugged, and colourful country... I love Australia!
