MAPPS
  • Organization of Photogrammetric and Mapping Firms
  • The Management Association for Private Photogrammetric Surveyors (MAPPS) is comprised of firms in the surveying, spatial data and geographic information systems field. MAPPS member firms are engaged in surveying, photogrammetry, satellite and airborne remote sensing, aerial photography, hydrographic, aerial and satellite image processing, GPS and GIS data collection and conversion services. 
  • Over 150 Companies, Nationwide

Typical Aerial Photography Project

Planning

  • Coverage Required
  • Lines to be Flown
  • Forward Overlap - Sidelap
  • Altitudes Required for Scale
  • Digitizing of Flight Lines
  • Restricted Areas
  • Prior Coordination with ATC
aerial photography prerequisites
Aerial Photography Prerequisites
  • Optimum Clear Weather, No Clouds
  • Sun Angle, 30 Degrees(Approximately 10:00am - 3:00 pm)
  • Leaf-off Requirements
  • GPS Satellite Configuration (PDOP)
  • Restricted Areas, Traffic (See ATC Manual)
  • Photo Scale Altitude
  • Navigation of Flight Lines
  • Aerial Photography: Normally under VFR; Altitudes Above FL 180, IFR
flight lines
Flight Lines
  • Linear Coverage
  • Block Coverage
  • Altitudes Dependant on Scale of Photography
  • 500’ Negative Scale flown @ 3,000’ AGL 1500’ Negative Scale flown @ 9,000’ AGL
  • Precision Exposures, In some cases exposures must be within 30 meters of planned
economic impact
Economic Impact
  • Aerial Photography is 5 – 10% of Typical Mapping Costs
  • Mapping Costs are 5 – 15 % of the Engineering Costs
  • Engineering Costs are 6 – 8 % of the Construction Costs
  • Construction Costs are 90% of Project Costs
actual project
Actual Project

Paris Pike Reconstruction, KY(12 Miles)

  • Aerial Photo Costs (3 Altitudes) 6k
  • Surveying and Mapping Costs 124k
  • Engineering Costs 4.2M
  • Total Construction Costs 49M

Aerial Photography Costs = 0.011% of Project Costs

Downstream Economic Effect – 9074 Times

critical flights
Critical Flights
  • Natural Disasters
  • Emergencies
  • Terrorism
current restrictions
Current Restrictions
  • IFR, Class “B” Airspace, TFRs
  • Inconsistencies in Different Areas of Country; Some OK- Some Not.
  • Other Restricted Areas: Power Plants; Industrial Complexes; Outdoor Events etc.
  • Hard Turns, Steep Banks, Changing Direction could be Perceived as a Threat.
considerations
Considerations
  • Based on Small Number of Aircraft
  • Based on Low Gross Weight
  • No Passengers
  • CriticalEconomic Impact
  • Strictly Defined Flight Projects
recommendations
Recommendations
  • On our part – MAPPS continues to urge maximum prior coordination of survey flights and cooperation with ATC
  • Greater familiarization of FAA with aerial survey requirements and the MAPPS organization
  • Prioritize critical survey flights and airspace access under Orange threat level
  • Short Range, Unique Identifier Code for Our Profession
  • Long Range, Separate Sub Section of Part 91
