Aerial imagery on UP42

Aerial photography is used to map terrestrial features and involves taking photographs from an aircraft or other flying techniques to obtain useful data and information about an area.

Aerial imagery fosters many vital applications of remote sensing, with a sophisticated range of cameras being used to collect information on land use, agricultural management, forestry, pollution and conservation, urban planning, wildlife management, and more.
