About Our Latest Camera

Midwest Aerial Photography is an industry leading aerial image provider and the first firm in the Americas to acquire the latest advancement in precise imaging technology with our purchase of the new Zeiss/Intergraph Digital Mapping Camera [DMC] II 4-Band digital sensor. The Z/I DMC II is the industry's most innovative large format digital image framing system, which replaces older systems containing multiple camera heads that require CCD stitching and image mosaicking to produce a virtual frame image.

The Z/I DMC II includes one large CCD exclusively customized by DALSA to maintain geometric accuracy for precise mapping applications. The single PAN camera head achieves the fundamental photogrammetric optics design proven by metric film cameras over several decades and eliminates potential sources of errors for geometric accuracy and radiometric quality. An essential part of the system includes a gyro mount to correct angular image motion. Forward Motion Compensation [FMC] is internal via TDI technology and represents the current state of the art for controlling aerial image quality.

Our airborne image and data acquisition infrastructure presently includes five survey aircraft and four Zeiss RMK TOP 15 film cameras. Integrating our dual frequency GPS receivers and an IMU to the Z/I DMC II direct digital camera or to the RMK TOP film cameras allows direct geo-referencing of project imagery to automate many of the photogrammetric processes.
