Most environmental projects have a "restoration" clause, requiring the land to be put back to original condition. Without good before and after photos, can you defend your efforts against landowners or clients who want you to fix things you didn't damage?
Brush cutting. Planning efficient and cost-effective brush cutting efforts requires current, detailed knowledge of the vegetative cover and terrain. Google Earth is a great tool, but it falls short of the detail and timeliness necessary to properly plan these activities. We can provide not only visual spectrum photographs, but vegetative coverage maps and vegetation heights in formats you can actually use. We can also produce 3D terrain maps that let you see exactly how steep those slopes are.
Virtual site walks are a very useful tool when putting together a proposal. High resolution photos allow every member of the proposal team unlimited access to the entire site, making planning much more efficient and accurate.
Field operations are more efficient with good planning tools. A current, high resolution image helps field managers plan activities, spot obstacles, and get a better feel for ground truth over the whole site. Field teams can communicate better by showing management exactly where trouble spots are, by coordinates, or by simply zooming in on the photo and pointing out the issues. (Ever had a team drive 45 minutes one way in the morning, only to report that the "road" you saw on Google Earth isn't actually a road, but a cow path? And there's no gate to get in?)
Speaking of environmental and UXO sites, we maintain current OSHA HAZWOPER certifications, so our crews can operate wherever they are needed. (Additionally, the owner is a 30+ year veteran of the UXO industry and former military EOD.)
