Aerial Acquisition

Aerial acquired geospatial data used for terrain mapping, vegetation analysis, remote sensing, orthophotography, aerial enlargements, or GIS applications must be high quality, high resolution, and distortion free.  ASI’s over five-decade reputation of acquiring such data is well known. Our commitment to exceed customer expectations is unwavering.


Multiple acquisition methods offer cost-effective aerial surveys for projects of all sizes & scopes

T206 Cessna (x3)

Ideal for wide area or corridor projects
Turbocharged single engine 125 mph cruising speed Ceiling 20,000 ft

Piper Navajo

Ideal for large, wide area projects
Turbocharged twin-engine 165 mph cruising speed Ceiling 25,000 ft

Bell 206 Helicopter

Ideal for corridor projects
Cruising speed 110 knots Meeker belly mount (Lidar) Meeker nose mount (Obliques)


Ideal for small area, corridor projects
Our UAS solutions provide high-density lidar, high resolution orthoimagery, and oblique imagery with the same professional mapping solutions as our traditional aerial surveying.

ASI lidar systems capture highly accurate elevations over terrain and above ground features.  Our crews use technology from trusted brands such as Leica and Riegl.

ASI large format digital cameras capture stunning full-color 4-band (RGB, Ir) aerial photography and provide maximum coverage of your AOI increasing efficiency in collection. 


Our Ultram large format capabilities provide crisp orthoimagery at multiple GSDs and spectrums (RGB, NIR).


Our lidar systems provide high-speed and incredibly accurate elevations at a wide variety of densities on fixed-wing and helicopter aircraft over large and small areas.


Medium format camera system offering exceptional imagery quality.  This system is typically used in conjunction with our Leica lidar systems and the Snyp’Air corridor system.

Your Project's Success Begins With Pre-flight Planning

The ability to collect and create high accuracy geospatial data begins with flight planning. Our experienced acquisition team evaluates requested criteria and ASI capabilities, then begins creating and executing the data acquisition plan based an assortment of factors and variables. Some of the factors that are evaluated and determined for each data acquisition plan include:

  • Specific sensor settings
  • Flight parameters
  • Ground conditions of project location
  • Weather patterns
  • Base of Operations
  • Prioritization of collection area(s)
  • Ground control availability and needs
  • Project accuracy requirements
