200 Mile2 Aerial Data Collection
ConocoPhillips contracted Landpoint in the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford Shale for two large scale aerial photogrammetry projects. Initially the project covered a small target area (less than 10 miles); however, after advanced technical discussion with the client, Landpoint advised ConocoPhillips that a larger sensor in a manned aircraft would be more effective and ultimately covered 190 square miles.
The project consisted of capturing ultra high resolution imagery and using Landpoint’s proprietary server cluster to process the imagery in a time frame 10x faster than the nearest competitor. The classified point cloud allowed the client to make environmental, engineering, and route planning decisions that ultimately saved the client millions of dollars in previously required duplicative work and substantially improved the project decision making process for development activities.
