AEROLOGIX GIS FAQ
-WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF UAV-BASED AERIAL SURVEY?
#1 = COST: Our market research indicates we can deliver equivalent or superior GIS and Civil Engineering products for 40-60% less than conventional providers.
#2 = FLEXIBILITY: The AeroLogix GIS system conducts small-scale collections on demand. It is often not cost-effective for conventional providers of Aerial Survey and GIS products to dispatch a conventional aircraft, crew and equipment for small areas. In many cases, Aerial Survey on a small scale was simply not available. The AeroLogix GIS system opens up affordable Aerial Survey and GIS production to projects and areas that were previously unobtainable.
#3 = HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGERY: Collecting at low altitudes with advanced digital imaging systems results in products that are incredibly detailed and accurate.
-WHAT IS GIS?
GIS stands for Geospatial Information Systems. When conventional aerial survey, map-making and geography entered the digital realm of computers, any data with the attributes of geographic positions and elevations became “geospatial” data. GIS imagery is generally sourced from aircraft and satellites. It is captured and processed in such a way as to “geo-register” the images. Geo—registered imagery contains imbedded data that identifies the positions and elevations across the image. This data allows computer programs like “Google Earth” to interpret and display the imagery in geographically accurate locations. Obviously, GIS imagery must be accurately geo-registered or it is useless. Accurate geo-registration requires sophisticated methods of collection and data processing. Capturing the photographs from the air is only the first step of a complex process.
-WHAT IS AEROLOGIX'S OPERATIONAL HISTORY?
AeroLogix began FAA Approved drone operations in 2014 with one of the nation's first commercial FAA Certificate of Waiver and Authorization (COA) for its contract operations with Le Sueur County, MN. Beginning in 2015, AeroLogix was awarded FAA approval for commercial UAV operations under Section 333 of the 2012 FAA Modernization and Reform Act. Operations under Part 107 began in September 2016 and allow AeroLogix to operate a variety of drone systems commercially to private and public customers.
-WHERE AND HOW WILL ARE YOU ALLOWED TO OPERATE UNDER PART 107
Operations under Part 107 are authorized in many areas without special requests from the FAA. AeroLogix reviews each project for airspace compliance and obtains FAA authorization as necessary.
