Aerodata completes 100% digital aerial photography of the Netherlands

Last October 18th, 2005 Aerodata Int. Surveys successfully completed
the countrywide digital aerial data acquisition of the Netherlands. The
imagery will be used to produce a seamless orthophoto database of an
area of 40.000 km2 and was acquired in a period of only 6 weeks time.

Aerodata’s digital camera UltraCam-D simultaneously recorded the
colour and colour-infrared imagery and was mounted in the fast
Fairchild Merlin survey aircraft.
The colour orthophoto mosaic at 40 cm
ground resolution will be colour balanced and shows a very high level
of detail. The use of the digital camera leads to significant
improvement of the final product with respect to image clarity,
brightness, contrast and visibility of details in shadow areas. With
this product Aerodata sets a new standard for countrywide digital
orthophoto databases.
The complete product will be finished
early 2006 and from then on the complete dataset or parts of it can be
delivered to clients under the brand name aeroGRID® NL2005.
