THE WORLD FROM ABOVE, IN 3D
WGS has designed and built a proprietary oblique imaging system using five 50Mp sensors for a combined 250Mp acquisition resolution. At full speed, this system generates 578Mb/second at 3cm resolution. Typical applications are for urban areas for valuations, insurance and strategic planning but can also be used for quarries where information is required about vertical faces.
There are two delivery options available to clients. The first is to be able to view the oblique frames in a GIS environment. This can either be done in 3rd party software that we can provide or any other common GIS.
The second option is to supply a complete 3D model. This requires specialised software for viewing and interacting with but provides a far more immersive experience.
Oblique imagery is aerial photography collected at an angle, usually downward at a 40° to 50° angle to the ground and is used extensively to assist in the property value assessment process and public safety.
In the property valuation process, oblique imagery helps determine structure use by allowing views of the various elevations and perspectives.
