GEO Jobe has assisted clients from many industries including large utilities, local governments, airports and Universities in the collection, analysis, and dissemination of geospatial data using UAV technology.

The GEO Jobe crew currently has three FAA licensed UAV remote pilots experienced in UAV and mobile data collection techniques for orthophotography updating, corridor mapping, asset inventory, terrian modeling, 3D building design models and more. GEO Jobe is prepared to support your mapping projects with a fleet of 4 drones using the latest UAV technologies. This new offering is a cost effective and efficient way for clients in local planning, economic development, utilities, construction, forestry, mining, agriculture and other industries to keep their existing data current, accurate, and updated.

Project deliverables are provided based on our customer needs, user requirements and can satisfy the requirements of a number of data capture and analysis projects as requested. GEO Jobe can deliver the following:

Orthophoto - An orthophoto, orthophotograph or orthoimage is an aerial photograph geometrically corrected ("orthorectified") such that the scale is uniform: the photo has the same lack of distortion as a map  It is a photographic map. Since an orthophoto has a uniform scale, it is possible to measure directly on it like other maps. An orthophoto may serve as a base map onto which other map information can be overlaid.

Digital Surface Model (DSM) - A DSM is an elevation model that includes the tops of buildings, trees, powerlines, and any other objects. Commonly this is seen as a canopy model and only 'sees' ground where there is nothing else overtop of it. DSM is a first-reflective-surface model that contains elevations of natural terrain features in addition to vegetation and cultural features such as buildings and roads. (gistackechange)

Digital Terrain Model (DTM) - A DTM is effectively a DEM that has been augmented by elements such as breaklines and observations other than the original data to correct for artifacts produced by using only the original data. This is often done by using photogrammetrically derived linework introduced into a DEM surface. An example is hydro-flattening commonly seen in elevation models done to FEMA specifications. Note, a DEM is a subset of DTM and the most fundamental component of DTM

UAV Image Hosting - Hosting the large amounts of data collected from your UAV team doesn’t have to be a huge, expensive headache.  Utilizing GEO Jobe's GEOPowered Cloud environment we can host your UAV data in many popular cached formats such as an ArcGIS for Server Image Service, MapServer, KML, etc. These services can be registered in products such as ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS Desktop, Google Earth, AutoCAD, as well any third-party applications that can receive an image service. As you perform updates or add more orthos to the service, images will be loaded into the same image service and will automatically appear in any application referencing the image service.

3D products - The world is not flat and you are no longer limited to 2D mapping. Use 3D to see your data in its true perspective, to make better decisions, and to communicate your ideas more effectively and efficiently.  Data delivered in a 3D suitable format will enable users to "3D enable" their geographic products. These data will support further viewing and analysis in 3D environments using supported 3D analysis tools and software.
