Our Leica RCD30 digital camera collects highly detailed imagery for a broad range of engineering and environmental applications. This aerial camera captures natural color and infrared (IR) bands. The IR band is well-suited for mapping tree canopies, locating invasive plant species, and capturing aquatic vegetation. In addition to our RCD30, we provide imagery from large-format platforms, including the Z/I DMC II and Microsoft UltraCam.
Aerial imagery can be used for high accuracy photogrammetric map compilation of topography and planimetric features. Detailed planimetrics (such as buildings, roads, utilities, hydrography, and impervious surfaces) can be collected in conjunction with digital terrain models and contours for many engineering applications. We provide photogrammetric mapping services to DOTs, municipalities, and utility companies.
This remote-sensing technology produces surface models from measured laser pulses emitted from a helicopter or plane. Captured data supports high-accuracy digital terrain models and extraction of detailed planimetric information. Ayres applies these systems to a diverse range of applications, including electrical transmission and distribution, floodplain and stormwater management, municipal mapping, transportation design, and forest canopy analytics.
As a multidisciplinary firm, we know how GIS applications can streamline the use of transportation, utility, and municipal engineering information. We have experience in many GIS and CAD platforms, including ESRI ArcGIS, MicroStation, Intergraph, and AutoCAD. We develop interactive and static exhibits and offer expert testimony for GIS-based analysis.
When your project is on the line, let Ayres provide boundary, control, and topographic/site surveying services. Our topographic surveying and mapping have been used to lay the groundwork for site, highway, and utility corridor designs. Ayres also provides remonumentation (PLSS) and global positioning systems (GPS) services.
