In contrast to standard film photography, digital cameras
capture images and store the data in a form readily
accessible to computer systems. The enhanced remote
sensing information provided by cutting-edge digital
camera sensors is becoming the standard for aerial
image acquisition: The resultant raw imagery
can be handled by image processing software without
the need for time-consuming printing and scanning.
Modern digital cameras are equipped with an array
of different sensors, enabling the cameras to capture
multiple spectral bands at the same time. This
means that a single camera can capture panchromatic,
color and near infrared imagery in a single pass
over the target area. For large aerial acquisition
projects that require more than one type of image
deliverable, these Multispectral cameras can be cost-effective.
TAS is able to provide aerial photography in both
film and digital formats.
