Aerial mapping is useful for a wide range of environmental requirements.

Aerial mapping can be used for the gathering of base data for riparian management of streams and rivers, as well as measuring and monitoring vegetation health, logging management and capturing imagery in remote areas that are difficult to reach on foot.

Aerial mapping is also a valuable tool to be used as part of the resource consent process for bigger infrastructure projects, where clients are required to monitor and manage environmental effects (for example, dams being developed for water management).
