When working on the best aerial solution for your project, Eagle uses the highest resolution, most accurate and current imagery available in your area. Using the highest pixel resolution allows for the user to zoom in for a detailed above-the-ground view from any desktop. The resolution and flown dates vary depending on the desired geographic location.
To meet the ever-changing needs of any city, Eagle has worked alongside of city planners, engineers and survey teams to design a breakthrough web-based solution providing high resolution imagery, geographic data and easy-to-use GIS tools to assist multiple departments within a city in accomplishing day-to-day tasks more efficiently. This new generation of subscription based aerial streaming software has been designed to easily be customized with your own unique data that loads into the database and becomes synced with the imagery. This simplified GIS software allows for task that once requiring field time to now be accomplished by a few clicks on a desktop.
Eagle Aerial Solutions has developed break-through, largely automated processes to determine changes in structures and improvements from year-to-year. Our Remote Sensing team uses a combination of software solutions and expert analysis, together with Eagle’s extensive library of current and historical imagery and near-infra-red data to identify even minor ground changes, vegetation variations, etc.
This affordable solution allows customers to conduct analyses rapidly over large areas, with comparisons from scene development of land overtime using historical imagery including changes in vegetation for environmental studies, or between selected historical years for specialized purposes. This approach can save hundreds and in some cases thousands of hours over traditional, manual analysis.
Our services help assorted disciplines accomplish various tasks, such as: municipalities identifying unpermitted structural changes, assessors identifying changes that can lead to modifications in assessed value.
As part of the basemap data layers, a building footprint map layer is an integral part of a City’s Geographic Information System (GIS). Base map data layers are accessed for basic applications such as viewing, querying, and map output production.
- Enhancing a City map with building footprints providing additional context and color
- Planning: Knowing where and what type structures already exist on property can help in the planning process due to applied setbacks and minimum distances from houses and property lines. Another example, planning the location of a water line or a sewer line that needs to cross property on an easement. If the footprint exists, the location constraints become more immediately obvious.
- Public Works/Public Safety: Knowing where structures are located can show where access to the rear of property is constrained. This can be important for public safety, if there is a fire, can a fire truck get to the back of a property, or is there not room between two structures. From the public works perspective, if there is a facility running on an easement across a piece of property, knowing where vehicles can get in to be able to effect repairs is critical.
- Risk Analysis – test the actual building location and footprint against flood, wildfire, ocean surge and other hazards
- Thematic Mapping – shade the actual building (rather than a point or a property boundary) with data that provides important context
- Sometimes a graphic map is more helpful than an aerial, especially when the need is to target/highlight specific assets.
- Business list data – what businesses are in each building and what are the characteristics (category, size, contact points) of those businesses?
- Additional geographic layers – connect building footprint data with other agency layers and geographic levels to provide full horizontal and vertical analysis.
- Provides a means to estimate building floor area
- Can be used in change detection.
