Aerial mapping

Posted by bri g on 2 June 2011 in English (English)

Bing has transformed the mapping process no doubt, but there are still many areas that would benefit from high res imagery ( much of Africa for one - Question why is Abuja, capital of the most populated country in Africa still a blur ).

Team Black Sheep seem to have an answer with their amazing aircraft and incredible videos : http://www.vimeo.com/24417184

Still ,if I was to take up a new hobby like this I doubt I would have a dime or a second left for mapping!

Off to Nigeria in August to write my thesis -( I am sure I can spin in mapping with developing small business networks somehow ! ) - with a pocket full of i Blue 747s to see what I can generate while I am there - but wow, do I want one of those stunt planes ( strictly for mapping purposes of course! )

Re bing coverage, i recently noticed the analyzer tool now gives a good whole globe overview:

http://www.team-blacksheep.com/ looks pretty cool. Can't find any details about their camera equipment though. Could add details to this wiki section
