Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/20/2014 -- Remote sensing is the technique of observing and measuring objects on the Earth’s surface from a distance. Commonly used methods for remote sensing are satellite imagery and aerial imagery. Of the two, aerial imagery or photography is the technique of capturing photographs of the land (ground) from an airborne platform such as fixed-wing helicopters, aircrafts, rockets, parachutes, multi-rotor unmanned aircraft systems and stand alone telescoping poles among others. It is one of the most economic, versatile and common methods of remote sensing. Aerial imagery finds it application in various techniques such as land-use (urban) planning, cartography (particularly in photogrammetric surveys), archaeology, environmental studies, movie production, commercial advertising, surveillance, artistic and conveyancing projects.

Earlier, aerial photography was a time consuming and slow process. Photographs were mostly clicked from airplanes which flew back and forth for capturing overlapping photographs. The rise of digital aerial photography cameras has helped to increase the speed of airborne photography. Additionally, the latest technologically updated cameras which can record data strips rather than individual frames have fastened this process thereby helping to drive the market. However, the aircraft location and environmental conditions may hamper the growth of the aerial imagery market. Furthermore, with availability of more planes (UAS – Unmanned aerial systems) and object detecting systems/technologies, such as RADAR, which remain unaffected by weather changes, new opportunities are emerging and are expected to drive the market growth in near future.
Different industry verticals are finding multiple applications of aerial imagery and are thus expected to influence the way the market evolves. Government, civil engineering industry, military, forestry and agriculture, and energy sectors are some of the key verticals currently dominating the aerial imagery market. Applications, such as natural resources management, construction and development, disaster response management, ‘intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance’ (ISR), conservation and research, and media and entertainment, are some of the fast emerging applications of aerial imagery.
With fast growing unmanned serial vehicle/systems (UAV/S) industry in U.S., North America is expected to emerge as leading market for aerial imagery. A major contributor to the demand here is UAV/S manufacturers, who are looking for alternate revenue sources post the Iraq and Afghan conflicts, which resulted in proliferation for many new players during the time period. As a result, with intense competition, these players are pushed to diversify their revenue sources and develop new applications/services. Asia-Pacific too is expected to emerge as an attractive destination for aerial imagery service/solution providers, with demand largely contributed by its fast expanding demand from agriculture, energy, and defense industry.
Attracted by the rising demand and emerging opportunities, many players are driven to the aerial imagery market. Some of the key players of include GeoVantage, Inc., BLOM ASA, CICADE S.A., Cooper Aerial Surveys Co., Digital Aerial Solutions, LLC, Fugro EarthData, Inc., Landiscor Aerial Information, Pictometry International Corp. and Premier Geospatial Inc..
