Maps Made Easy
Vertical Aspect can provide complete custom mapping services – with as little as 24-48 hr turnaround.
- 2D Orthomosaic
- Topographic overlay
- 3D Models
- Output to Global Mapper, ArcGIS, AutoCAD, etc.
- Outputs can be printed, electronic or online format
Our mission is to provide our customers with the right tools and knowledge to get the most out of this emerging technology. Vertical Aspect’s flexible training programs equips students with the following skills:
- UAV piloting
- Pix4D Pro Mapper
- Virtual Surveyor
- Global Mapper
We offer both in-person and remote training sessions to accommodate our clients’ needs.
We can provide a variety of aerial imagery services, either in conjunction with a mapping project, or as a separate event.
- Aerial Inspections
- Real Estate marketing
- Construction monitoring
- General aerial perspective views
Pix4D is your solution to convert thousands of aerial and oblique images taken by lightweight UAV or aircraft into geo-referenced 2D orthomosaics and 3D surface models and point clouds.
Take the output from Pix4D and create terrains in Virtual Surveyor – enabling you to perform the functions of a surveyor at your desktop. Measure complex volume piles, remove terrain, insert breaklines, generate movies from the 3D model and more. . .
Why Vertical Aspect?
Veteran Owned – Our staff includes personnel with over 30 years of rotary wing flight experience, a professional surveyor, an engineer and professional photographer. We reach out to other partners as needed to get the job done.
SALES & TRAINING
We don’t just sell products. Anything we offer for sale, we use ourselves and we train you in getting the most out of it.
We maintain the latest in UAV hardware software and constantly evaluate and implement new products to keep up with the rapidly evolving field of aerial mapping and inspections.
With years of both UAV and manned flight experience, (military and civilian) we apply risk management procedures and maintain a safety first mindset.
LICENSED & INSURED
All of our UAV pilots are FAA Part 107 certified allowing commercial UAV operations. We carry UAV liability insurance.
We have the experience to help you determine your UAV mapping or imagery needs, along with the most efficient methods to achieve them.

Ground Control Points (GCP) & Check Shots in Pix4D
This video explains the difference between Ground Control Points (GCP) and check shots and how to use both of them within Pix4D Pro Mapper software to obtain survey grade accuracy Attributes of GCPs and Check Points GCPs are used to rotate, scale and orientate the project in a real world location or in some cases in a “Local Coordinate System) GCPs are typically statically placed around the outside edge of the project with at least one GCP in the interior of the project GCPs should not be more than 1,000-1,500 …

Drone Mapping Accuracy – Part II – Real Time Kinematics (RTK)
In an earlier post, we discussed Ground Control Points as a primary method of obtaining survey grade accuracy from drone mapping. The photogrammetry/mapping software (such as Pix4d Pro Mapper) uses these GCP to make adjustments to the project to obtain survey grade accuracy. However, this method requires laying out and precisely geolocating numerous control points (approximately every 1000 to 1500 feet). Depending on the terrain and/or the size of the project, the GCP method could be very impractical, difficult and time consuming. Another, arguably more advanced method, is referred to …
