Aerial mapping and survey is the process of gathering geographical data by utilizing aerial photography, which is often done through the use of manned or unmanned aircraft. This process serves many purposes by revealing information that would otherwise not be visible from the ground. There are many types of legal matters that requires the expertise from an aerial mapping and survey expert witness.
An expert in aerial mapping and survey must have a wide range of knowledge because of the technical aspects and equipment involved with the industry, including digital photography, drones, imaging software, GPS, and other forms of technology. These skills are utilized in combination with various forms of mapping, such as cartography, topography, 3D landscape visualization, land cover identification, aerial photogrammetry, and geodesy.
Aerial mapping and survey can be used to determine construction and property boundaries, as well as providing information for construction and environmental analysis. This type of surveying can be useful in cases concerning boundary disputes, disputes over easement rights, the land use, and other property and real estate issues.
