Confidently Acquiring Large-format Imagery with Phase One’s 280MP Aerial Solution

Atlantic’s investment in the new phase one large-format camera system affords them the opportunity to now confidently self-provide quality imagery over large areas and offer a wider range of in-house services to their clients.

Large-Format Aerial Solutions Widen Revenue Stream

Atlantic is an airborne remote sensing, survey, and consulting business that operates over North America. Their customers are more sophisticated, have higher expectations, and better standards. Having equipment that can help them meet and exceed those expectations is so critical and key for the company.

The business had purchased a 100-megapixel medium format Phase One Aerial System and really appreciated their initial experience so much, that they ended up buying two additional medium format cameras. A little less than two years later, Atlantic has expanded its partnership with Phase One by purchasing their 280MP large-format aerial system (PAS 280).

“The quality of imagery based on our new system is night and day. We’re able to get a crisper, less hazy, less overexposed image overall” explains Scott Jones, Atlantic Vice President.

Being able to purchase a large-format solution at a reasonable price means that they can provide data acquisition services at a competitive price for their clients. The company is able to offer a better product and really expand what they can propose on, what they can collect. This allows Atlantic to get into different markets and expand themselves into different regions based on the higher capability of the camera.
