"Earth Mappers contracts commercially to capture high-resolution aerial imagery and data sets."
We combine our images and video from our drones with ground-based GNSS/GPS receivers and ground control points to create highly precise maps used for commercial, private or public inspection. We work with certified GIS specialists, and photogrammetry software experts. Collecting high quality, aerial imaging data sets and processing them into accurate aerial maps. We are commercially insured to fly our aircraft internationally.
Quality datasets compile beautiful maps. Map reporting includes NDVI, field counting, plant identification, irrigation control, 2-D high-res maps, digital surface modeling, contour layers. Desktop and cloud-based post-processing using industry-leading technology. Comprehensive 3D maps of vertical structures, field counting, identification, 3-D scene reconstruction modeling, 2-D orthomosic maps, digital surface modeling, contour layers, elevation reporting. Desktop and cloud-based post-processing. Still photography and 4K video. Geo-referencing photography with static-observation GNSS satellite receivers. User licenses with Pix4D and DroneDeploy.
We consult with business owners implementing in-house systems or hiring a third-party professional drone service. We use our experience to recommend aircraft, cameras, processing software, certification, and training. We teach how to create effective workflows to gather and process aerial images and video. We understand the training and certification required by the FAA to operate drones commercially. Our pilots and drones will bring you the information your company requires.

CEO / Founder
A former pilot-in-command at Zipline International, a robotics company in Silicon Valley, USA. Jeff has piloted over 4,000 unmanned aircraft flight missions. His leadership in Zipline’s flight operations help shape the first-ever, fixed-winged fleet of autonomous drones used commercially to deliver thousands of emergency related products to hospitals in Rwanda, Africa.
Prior to Zipline, he was one of the nation’s first pilots certified by the FAA to pilot unmanned vehicles for commercial purposes. His passion is aerial photography and mapping. Jeff has traveled the world carrying a camera. His aerial photography has been published by National Geographic with stock footage globaly including Norway, Vietnam, UK, Canada, Dubai, Cambodia, Rwanda, Utah's Canyons and Northern California's coastline.
