With this aerial surveying solution, you’ll achieve the highest level of data accuracy currently possible, cover more ground in one flight, use less people and equipment on jobs – all without using ground control points.

Significantly reduce your time spent on projects. Deliver unparalleled data quality. Become invaluable to your clients’ success.


You may have heard that RTK and PPK are the best aerial mapping technologies. That’s because they were – back in the 80s and 90s.

Today, direct georeferencing is the most advanced technology available. But that doesn’t make it a luxury option. Direct georeferencing makes sense for pretty much any customer because it will pay for itself quickly and provide your business with dramatic cost savings over time.

With DG, you won’t need to install any ground control points (unless you want to install 1 or 2 to check your work later for quality control). You’ll collect your images and post-process in a fraction of the time. Your projects will require less people and equipment. You’ll safely tackle mapping jobs in dangerous locations.

Most important, you’ll deliver the best possible accuracy on projects where human safety and your reputation is on the line
