Airphrame acts a single access point for on-demand mapping content. We procure highly detailed geophysical content on behalf of our clients using a robust, scalable, and continually updated network of remote sensing devices (Airphrames™) that are able to operate over most developed land in the United States and abroad.

As an end-to-end service, Airphrame allows you to obtain aerial data (photos, terrain surveys, 3D models) without having to be concerned about vehicle specifications or operations -- or more importantly without ever leaving one's desk. Simply point and click on a map to access, monitor, measure, record, or analyze your site virtually.

Survey data collection can be a costly part of any development or engineering effort. It’s a necessary and time-consuming process, whether for inspecting construction work, assessing current conditions, or even defining the scope of a project. We support field crews by automating as much of the process as possible; our network of measurement devices collect large amounts of data and can input it directly into a computer model (GIS or CAD).

A visual inspection is a critical step in moving many projects forward. Claims regarding size, condition, or location typically require third party verification and presence on the site - until now. Our technology captures this information in a consistent manner across a wide geography, which removes the in-person costs, allows for greater scheduling flexibility, and creates data sets with no variance in quality. “Desk reviews” can now become a common practice across a variety of industries.

Regulations are a challenging aspect of virtually every project that alters the physical environment. Aerial data can streamline the process of assessing the true impact, recording change, and collecting accurate measurements over large areas. Whether for environmental impact assessment, biological surveys, or ongoing reviews, our technology platform is designed to automate the costliest piece of the process. By providing clients with the information they need, we are able to significantly reduce overall data collection expenses in an already burdensome process.

When assets are spread across wide geographies, having a means to alert of change can be an invaluable method toward heading off disaster and minimizing future costs. Spotting unapproved construction, heavy equipment changing locations, damage to second homes, are just a few examples where it can pay big dividends to keep a constant watch.


The desire to provide timely spatial and analysis data from aerial imagery spans many industries. Our technology is specialized for two sectors: Engineering and Insurance.

Engineering — Airphrame benefits anyone who works with geospatial data by offering a more reasonably priced data source, thus increasing the potential frequency of capture.

Insurance — Airphrame can help reduce insurers’ risk and customers’ premiums by making the world a more deterministic place.


Our primary industry focus is providing mapping services for engineers, geologists, and others that work in the environmental sector. Up-to-date and cost effective remote sensing data can reduce field work and improve the quality of assessments; we are able to increase efficiency by providing environmental consultants with a web based data collection and project management tool.


Our 3D imaging technology is designed to calculate changes in material volumes for inventory and reporting purposes. We provide data for stockpile volumes, period-to-period change, reserve volumes, and more. Additionally, our data streamlines the regulatory compliance and reporting processes.


Our remote sensing capabilities are specifically geared to assist in the assessment of natural resources projects, transmission lines, and other renewable energy infrastructure. Our mapping products can also be used to satisfy regulatory requirements and aid in the operation of municipalities, power utilities, water districts, and sanitation districts. Airphrame offers geospatial solutions that are critical to the monitoring of water infrastructure systems and transmission corridor integrity.


Airphrame provides design and construction support by capturing on demand aerial images and processing data for surveys, topographic mapping, utility investigations, and more. These services are instrumental in helping clients visualize assets and predict the environmental impact of different engineering decisions.

Catastrophe Response

Due to the low mobilization cost of Airphrames™, we are able to react and deliver after events on very short notice: identifying event boundaries, affected properties, and degree of damage.


In underwriting, an underinsured property benefits no one. Airphrame makes sure that every room is covered by allowing for building measurements with far less error than those taken in person or from alternate data sources.


Check on assets with a frequency corresponding to their value. Enable add-on services such a monitoring for nearby brush growth (wildfire prevention), roof deterioration (storm prevention), or activity in second home (theft prevention).


Contribute to risk exposure models with a more detailed database of characteristics including those measured by behavior and changes over time.

About Us

Organizations are increasingly looking to utilize different types of data to provide a better service for their customers; Airphrame provides a wealth of information from the sky.

Our company started in 2012, developing remote sensing products for agriculture. We’ve since grown

our talent and ambition to provide a more universal solution — one where you don’t need to understand or operate any equipment to capture the data you need.

We strive to digitally describe the physical world as it changes, opening up a broad new array of analytics. We hope that you’ll join us as we do.
