Best Bird's Eye View of Phoenix - 2012
Kenney Aerial Mapping
Armed with two turbo-charged Cessna 206 aircraft and a slew of cameras, the Kenney Aerial Mapping crew takes to the sky. From above, the team can capture data that helps it create custom aerial topographic maps, aerial photos, surveys, and digital terrain models of any area in the Southwest. Forget Google Earth; these guys use two Zeiss aerial-mapping cameras that are calibrated regularly by the U.S. Geological Survey and have higher resolution for fine detail. When they're back on land, the team scans and processes film in its in-house photo lab, where custom maps and aerial photos can be processed, printed, and mounted to document your latest trophy hike or the beginning stages of your next big project.
