Micro Aerial Projects prides itself on providing optimal, cost effective and intelligent solutions for your surveying, mapping and modeling needs anywhere in the world. Working with a variety of UAV platforms and our V-Map system we produce high resolution aerial photography, orthoimagery,  highly accurate and detailed topographic data and high resolution maps and models for a variety of applications.  Using suitable small UAV platforms which are portable and field repairable, we are able to reduce costs, save time and improve safety.  The compact equipment size further allows easy transport from point a to point b across the globe.
