There are a wide range of uses for aerial mapping, and aerial photography can tell you a variety of things about a piece of land that you would otherwise never learn. But just what type of businesses benefit most from aerial mapping, and how can they use this service to their advantage? We’re here to go over the basics!
It should come as no surprise that aerial mapping is useful for just about any kind of construction site. No matter what building project you are involved in, being able to see an aerial view of the land can make the entire job easier. Not only will aerial photography give you a different perspective of the land you’re building on, it’s also a great way to document the progress of the job. If your client wants to see how a building is coming along, there’s no better way to show them than to provide some aerial photographs of the site.
Marketers are also interested in aerial photography because an overhead view can create some striking images. These types of photographs are rare, so when people see a building or a site from an overhead perspective, it should really stand out to them.
Aerial photography is also useful for real estate companies. Often, clients want to see a home from every angle, and this is especially true if the property is expansive. Providing a potential buyer with an overhead shot of the entire area could really turn them on to a property they may have otherwise ignored.

I think it’s neat how accessible aerial photography is now days. In WWII my grandfather was an aerial photographer, but back then the equipment was much harder to come by and required airplanes. That’s neat that this can be used to map and determine boundaries and get a new perspective of the land like you said.
Thank you for your comment, let me clarify that aerial photography or photogrammetric mapping can not be used to determine property boundaries. This can only be done by a licensed land surveyor from a ground survey. Photogrammetric mapping is typically used for topographic mapping of large areas for engineering design.
I like that you brought up that aerial mapping is beneficial for real estate companies because it can give potential home buyers a unique look at the property that they’re interested in. While I had already thought that aerial mapping would work well for construction sites, I never thought about the benefit it could have for real estate. Aerial mapping allows the unique opportunity to allow others to view things through a different perspective and view a piece of land differently.
In most instances, for small real estate, the aerial mapping (photogrammetry is not relevant. Photogrammetry is typically used for large mapping projects. Sorry if our article mislead you. For an aerial view of a residential property, Google Earth is a could source for getting a different perspective on the property.
