Resource Mapping has a unique, portable camera pod that attaches to most high-wing aircraft and can be used to collect true multispectral digital aerial imagery anywhere in the world. Our approach to measuring, monitoring, and analyzing the natural resources in these landscapes combines the best aspects of heuristic photo interpretation with feature mapping and object-based classification. Our low overhead allows these services at lower cost than other imagery sources. We teach everything we do, providing the tools to utilize our products or to produce your own aerial imagery in-house.

Our mission is to provide:

  • Remote sensing and GIS services for conservation
  • Digital aerial imagery with a unique portable sensor system
  • Assistance in applications utilizing GIS data and analysis, and
  • Low-cost alternatives to expensive imagery and monitoring.

30 Years of Aerial Imagery Applications Experience

Working with educational institutions, consulting firms, and governmental agencies since 1978, our principal researcher, Dana Slaymaker, has been instrumental in the development of digital video, still camera digital imagery, and profiling lasers as tools for natural resources surveys. Resource Mapping has incorporated that research, providing innovative services to conservation organizations like The Nature Conservancy and Elephants Without Borders. We also established in-house aerial photography and image processing capacities for non-profit corporations such as Conservation International and Winrock International that want their own systems.

Resource Mapping has the expertise to successfully acquire excellent imagery under adverse conditions. We have completed difficult assignments around the world, from detecting invasive tree ferns in the mountains of Hawaii to mapping the potential routes and environmental impacts of a 640-kilometer pipe line between Santa Cruz, Bolivia and Cuiaba, Brazil.
