Aerial Imaging or aerial photography is a process of capturing images of the desired object, ground surfaces with the help of cameras from a highly elevated point. The cameras are usually mounted on various air vehicles like unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), helicopters, airships, or other flying objects like kites and balloons for this purpose. This technology has been used for a while in various verticals spanning from civil engineering, research, government, and agricultural purposes. They are critical in providing insights about spatial information, land cover, vegetation areas, soil maps, and geological areas, which are used for analysis and strategic planning for urban settlements and route designing. Some of the key purposes involve urban planning, security, energy management, and monitoring environmental studies, etc. The commercial applications range from construction progress evaluation, advertising to promotional purposes. The use of this technology has been preferred as it provides a more comprehensive insight for the desired project.

The Global Aerial Imaging Market is estimated to be USD 1.92 Bn in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 3.43 Bn by 2025 growing at a CAGR of 12.3%.
