Parish Online Aerial Imagery

Get up-to-date High Resolution Aerial Imagery and 3D Models of your Parish.

We have teamed up with Parish Online who provide digital mapping for town, parish & community councils across the UK.

Aerial Imagery (also known as Ortho Imagery) is a great resource for your Council, providing detailed up-to-date information about what is on the ground and can be used to support a whole range of activities including:

• Neighbourhood Development Plans

• Emergency Plans

• Plotting & Maintaining Assets

• Managing open spaces & environmentally sensitive areas

• Tracking development and land use changes

• Managing grounds maintenance contracts

With Skeye’s ultra-modern capture technology we can capture data at a lower altitude than conventional aerial photography systems. This enables us to produce much higher resolution imagery than you will have seen in Parish Online before (<5cm compared to 12.5 or 25cm depending on the year of capture and your area), giving you a much higher level of detail.

Here’s a few examples of 3.5cm Aerial Imagery captured in Basingstoke in September 2017.

Captured and delivered within weeks

Ensuring the information, you use to make decisions, capture evidence and manage your business is up-to-date is pivotal in enabling you to be effective and efficient.  One of the major benefits of Skeye’s capture process is that there’s now no need to wait for months or years even to receive your new data. Flying at lower altitudes enables us to capture under the cloud line, increasing the number of days we can capture imagery on compared to traditional techniques. This means we can turn around your order for high resolution imagery and 3D model within weeks and you can get more regular updates as/when you require them. For example, having both Summer (leaves on trees) and Winter (no leaves) Imagery can often be useful, or having a historic record over a number of years to see how development is changing the area you manage.

If you are a small Parish, or only require a small area of your Parish to be flown then why not team up with neighbouring Parishes, Businesses or Organisations to share the costs? You can use Parish Online to measure out the area you want captured and provide us with a map (in PDF) to show the area, we can then quickly confirm the costs and start planning the flight to capture your data. All data that is captured can be delivered in a number of different formats to fit your GIS/CAD requirements at no extra cost. Aerial imagery can also be loaded into your Parish Online account so you can use it alongside your existing datasets and information.
