Blom is one of the world’s pioneers of aerial photography and has been capturing imagery since 1919. The technology has evolved but the concept remains the same and, even now, aerial imagery still provides the traditional basis for many of Blom's products and services.
The Blom Group owns a number of large format digital and analogue cameras mounted in our twin-engine planes. We operate large format digital cameras from both Vexcel and Leica and utilize the very latest of technological development in both hardware and software. Advanced Global Navigation Satellite systems (GNSS) and Inertial Navigation systems (INS) enable us to provide our customers with the highest quality products available. Helicopter mounted systems are often used when the highest resolutions and the very highest accuracies are required.
Applications for aerial photography range from online services and web directories that utilise the imagery as a navigation backdrop to engineering companies that use high resolution imagery for asset management and route planning. Our European based fleet of aircraft and cameras meet the most demanding requirements regarding accuracy, altitude, resolution and deliverables and enables us to mobilize on short notice to any location quickly and efficiently.
