Aerial survey is a method of obtaining imagery and data, and can provide information on things that are not visible from the ground. Measurements on aerial photography images are determined by aerial photogrammetry. Aerial surveying has been used for mapping projects since the 1920’s. Other applications for aerial surveys include: archaeology, geophysics, industrial sites, land survey, mining and mineral exploration, monitoring wildlife, boundary survey, and for transportation projects.

Litigation support by an aerial surveys expert witness could include analysis of aerial photographs, deposition, expert opinion, and expert testimony at a trial.
