There are lots of reasons why you might want to have aerial images taken of a piece of property. You could be in the process of making plans for your property, or you might just want aerial images that you can add to your records. You could be hoping to take aerial images so that you can use them to generate interest in the property when putting it up for sale. No matter why you are planning on working with an aerial imagery acquisition service, you will probably want to ask these questions before actually hiring a service to help you with these images.

1. Do You Offer Pictures, Videos, or Both?

As the name suggests, you can typically rely on an aerial imagery acquisition service for help with getting aerial images of your property. However, what you might not know is that many services will also offer video that shows an aerial view of your property. If this is something that you are interested in instead of — or in addition to — photographs, you should not hesitate to ask your aerial imagery acquisition service.

2. What Type of Picture or Video Quality Can I Expect?

Of course, the aerial pictures and videos that you receive of your property will probably only be useful to you if they are good-quality, clear images. Of course, some properties can be more difficult to photograph or video for one reason or another, such as if there are a lot of trees in the way. You should ask for specifications of the image or video quality when you are hiring an aerial imagery acquisition service. You may also want to ask to see examples of pictures or videos that the company might have provided for others who have used their services.

3. Do You Service My Area?

There are some companies that offer aerial imagery acquisition services all over. There are also companies that stick to working in local areas. Some companies specialize in providing imagery of rural properties, while others do not work in rural areas. Obviously, one of the main things that you should ask about is whether or not the company offers services in the area where your property is located. Luckily, even if your property is located in a rural area, you should be able to find an aerial imagery acquisition service that can provide you with the images that you are looking for.
