3c9282684-4eb2-4c75-9c18-3d06c83f9d21Flightline Geographics and Tablerock Land Survey have have partnered to provide 3D aerial imagery from unmanned aerial systems (UAS ) for pipeline and electric transmission projects across North America. The announcement was made at the International Right of Way Association annual conference and trade show.

Flightline Geographics is a GIS company that has been involved in professional UAS since 2012 and provides base mapping and 3D terrain modeling through the use of UAS for energy corridors and other areas of interest.

“GIS is a technology that depends upon up-to-date content, and UAS is now a cost-effective way to provide aerial visual intelligence for GIS in the form of stunning 3D imagery. All delivered in days, not months,” said Flightline Geographics’ founder and CEO Devon Humphrey.

Tablerock provides survey, right-of-way and project management/inspection services.

“One of the challenges we have faced has been obtaining current aerial imagery and topographic information that meets industry needs for project design and GIS within the United States,” said Andrew Darlington, president of Tablerock Land Survey. “On most projects, our clients are limited to whatever current satellite imagery is available on the Internet, but it is often dated and of low quality. Content from FlightlineGeo changes all that.”

Flightline Geographics is an Esri Partner Network Company based in the Austin, Texas, area and Tablerock Land Survey is based in Denver.
