Seamless Aerial Photograph Mosaic

This is a sample of an seamless 1:10000 scale color aerial photograph mosaic of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The actual image was plotted out on a 4 foot by 4 foot poster. The mosaic image was generated using PCI OrthoEngine software to seamlessly combine seven individual ortho photos.

Aerial Photograph

Aerial photography is the method of taking of photographs of the ground from an elevated position. The term usually refers to images in which the camera is not supported by a ground-based structure. Cameras may be hand held or mounted, and photographs may be taken by a photographer, triggered remotely or triggered automatically. Platforms for aerial photography include fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, balloons, blimps, kites and other airborne systems. Tradionaly they are produced in photogrammetric surveys, which are often the basis for topographic maps, land-use planning, archaeology, environmental studies, surveillance, commercial advertising, and other such projects.

Kejimkujik National Park and Historic Site ortho photos

Below is a poster created showing a seamless ortho photo mosaic of Jeremys Bay Campground, Kejimkujik National Park and Historic Site created from several 25 cm resolution aerial photos flown while studying at COGS in 2003. The image has the location of campsites layered on top and was created for a Spatial GIS Vegetation Database and GIS Spatial Modeling project that I worked on during the summer of 2004.
