Choosing the Right Camera for Your Photogrammetry Project

With guest speaker Patrick McConnell, president at ClearSkies Geomatics Incs.


Aerial cameras come in many types and sizes, each optimized for acquisition with specific altitude ranges to ensure the highest quality imagery for mapping. They can be single sensor systems or multi sensors systems, and there are many additional components that have been developed to enhance the quality of their output such as IMUs, gyro stabilized mounts and image motion compensators. Patrick McConnell, President of ClearSkies Geomatics Inc., will join the event to discuss these topics and trends in our profession.

💡Specifically, attendees will learn about the following:


  • Types of cameras used in aerial mapping

  • Single sensor vs multi-sensors

  • Additional components (e.g. IMUs, stabilized mounts)

  • Factors affecting accuracy

  • Processing workflows
