Whilst the digital compact camera has enabled site engineers, architects and others to take progress pictures of their project, nothing quite beats a 'bird's eye' view - no pun intended! New access roads, boundaries and similar features are shown in excellent visual spatial relationships.

Satellite imagery covers  the globe and these days is remarkable for its clarity and detail. However, despite the facility to view images in 3D, these on-line pictures lack the clarity and three dimensional qualities inherent in specific oblique photography.

High definition images allow for good levels of enlargement to study fine details and can be invaluable for such assignments as progress photography. The image above, of part of Manchester centre, is "zoomable", (by clicking the link above) in order to appreciate this detail.
A
erial photography is also of great value in a number of fields where the overall view of the subject reveals information which would be almost impossible to obtain from ground level, such as site boundaries &c.  In addition to the obvious commercial applications - such as building sites, pipelines, railways,

waterways and electricity transmission lines -  its is also an important tool for archaeological and historical studies, geography, geology, ecology and botany.

As an instance of  "before and after" shots, the two images, left and right, show the original area of industry - Dema Glassworks in Chesterfield - and the subsequent construction of a large new Tesco Store and football ground. The completed site is depicated at the head of this page.

 Prices: Like all assignments, each is unique and thus I suggest you contact me for a package deal cost tailored to your specific requirements. Please indicate the location of your site or sites.
