Cornerstone Mapping Upgrades to the Vexcel Ultracam Eagle
Cornerstone Mapping has upgraded its Ultracam UCLp to the Ultracam Eagle Mark I. The larger footprint, higher resolution camera will nearly double our data acquisition efficiency while also offering higher resolution imagery and capabilities.
Cornerstone Mapping Purchases Third Aircraft
Cornerstone Mapping adds a Cessna Turbo 210N to its aircraft fleet. The Cessna has been modified with an 18-inch camera port designed for large-format sensors. The aircraft will greatly enhance the data acquisition speed and capabilities for larger projects.
Cornerstone Mapping: A Case Study in Collaboration and Innovation (Professional Surveyor Magazine)
Cornerstone Mapping discusses building a thermal mapping system to create an “energy consumption map” of an entire city. The heat-loss map was needed in order to educate local residents and businesses about consumption reduction measures they could take to minimize their heating costs. Cornerstone Mapping fully integrated a digital thermal sensor to build an airborne thermal mapping system based on direct georeferencing technology. LINK TO ARTICLE
Cornerstone Mapping Celebrates 10 years
Cornerstone Mapping celebrates its 10th year in business. Thank you to all of our customers for choosing us for your remote sensing projects.
Cornerstone Mapping Speaks at the ASPRS Conference
Jenoptik Optical contracted with Cornerstone Mapping to conduct a study of their pre-release version of a 1024×768 pixel thermal camera. This is the largest thermal detector array based on microbolometer technology on the market. Cornerstone Mapping flew two thermal cameras for a side-by-side comparison. The results were presented at the 2012 ASPRS Conference. VIEW PRESENTATION
Cornerstone Mapping is a Keynote Speaker at the NeATA Conference
Cornerstone Mapping is invited to be a keynote speaker for the Nebraska Agricultural Technology Association (NeATA) to discuss the latest available thermal imaging technology for agricultural applications. VIEW PRESENTATION
Cornerstone Mapping Flies Nighttime Thermal Imagery Project
Cornerstone Mapping acquires 42 square miles of nighttime thermal imagery for the city of Grand Island, Nebraska. The imagery will be fully integrated into the city’s GIS platform and used to identify the energy heat loss of homes and businesses.
Cornerstone Mapping Announces that their Newest Survey Aircraft is Ready
Cornerstone Mapping, Inc. announced that their newest survey ready aircraft, a Cessna Turbo 206 (Stationair) has completed its first successful survey mission. Cornerstone’s addition of an FAA-approved camera hole is capable of large-format camera payloads. Equipped with a Track’Air SteadyTrack camera mount the sensor is stabilized in 3-axis to optimize image quality. The 20-inch camera hole provides us with the flexibility of many sensor options. Plus, there is a smaller camera hole where a second sensor such as our thermal camera can be mounted for a dual-sensor collection. The cameras and SteadyTrack mount are driven by the Applanix POS/AV and POStrack equipment providing an airborne GPS/IMU solution and flight navigation.
Cornerstone Mapping Invests in Thermal Camera
Cornerstone Mapping invests in a state-of-the-art digital thermal sensor for airborne applications. We will be doing in-house system integration to couple the thermal camera to the airborne GPS/IMU. The thermal mapping system will be capable of mapping large areas and delivering orthorectified thermal mosaics that retain the full precision of the thermal camera.
Cornerstone Mapping Purchases Second Aircraft
Cornerstone Mapping adds a Piper Turbo Saratoga to its aircraft fleet. The Saratoga has been modified with dual 14×17-inch camera ports. The aircraft will greatly enhance the data acquisition speed and capabilities for larger projects. The dual camera ports also enable the option for multi-sensor data acquisition such as multi-spectral and LiDAR or hyper-spectral sensors.
Cornerstone Mapping Upgrades Camera System
Cornerstone Mapping upgrades their Applanix DSS301 digital sensor system to the DSS439. The new sensor is based on a 39-megapixel sensor capable of color and color-infrared imaging. The larger sensor array enables fewer flight lines and greater project efficiencies. The camera system is also much smaller and lighter than the DSS301. The reduced size and weight are a benefit in the aircraft.
