Using specially developed technology to capture night time aerial photographs, Bluesky's night aerial map images can be used directly in a desktop mapping tool or geographical information system (GIS). This fascinating product provides additional intelligence for Government Authorities and other organisations that are responsible for lighting infrastructure. There are also applications in light pollution, energy conservation, crime mapping, public health and ecology.
Night aerial map surveys provide colour aerial photographs recording light emissions across an entire city or region in one night. These images are stitched together and supplied as an orthorectified map. This map can be overlaid directly into a GIS providing intelligent geospatial information to support strategies and local campaigns. Precise metadata is also supplied in GIS format; this gives an exact time of capture for each of the individual aerial images within the survey. A Nightsky surveys offers a recorded 'snapshot' in time, mapping light emissions within a geographic region.
