Remote sensing

The foundation of first-class GIS is increasingly aerial imagery, and airborne data. These methods allow areas from 4 hectares and upwards to be surveyed accurately, quickly, and economically – an unbeatable combination. Ground surveys, in such circumstances, will take longer, be more expensive, and impossible in difficult to access areas. Satellite imagery is of lower resolution and up-to-date data considerably more expensive.

Our ability to react quickly and flexibly, means short preparation phases, and swift completion of projects. You will receive extensive data sets and results, of high quality, in the shortest time possible. Make use of the advantages offered by airborne data – we would be pleased to advise you.

In  order to meet the varying demands of our clients we utilise our own aircraft, and increasingly helicopters or drones / UVAs, for aerial imagery, infrared and thermal data as well as LiDAR. Our pilots, and flight operators, are also available for charter flights and will ensure the smooth-running of your project both at home and abroad.

Aerial imagery and Orthophotos

Our aerial imagery and orthophotos give a realistic overview of terrain and surface objects. They are an essential source of high-quality and precise information for the  city base maps, cadastre, route planning, waste disposal site surveys, digital terrain models, as well as digital, topographic and thematic maps.[ read more ]

Airborne LIDAR Surveys

We deliver precise information for the planning, running and monitoring of infrastructure and accurate documentation of plant and equipment. [ read more ]

Airborne Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging

Airborne thermal imaging cameras convert the energy in the infrared wavelength into a visible light display. Thermal imaging is used e.g. to detect energy losses in buildings or as a non-destructive testing technique for district heating pipelines. [ read more ]

Airborne Hyperspectral Imaging


Hyperspectral imaging collects and processes information from across the electromagnetic spectrum. Such as the visible light is limited to three bands (red, green, and blue), spectral imaging divides the spectrum into hundreds of bands. [ read more ]

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)


Hansa Luftbild uses Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in a small but growing number of applications. [ read more ]

Chartered flights

If you need a chartered flight at short notice, we can provide both equipment and personnel. [ read more ]
