Wired networks are rapidly being replaced with wireless cellular telecommunications worldwide. The need to locate clear line of sight tower locations is critical and many places in the world that have not been well mapped with high resolution. The cloud processing of FalconScan images obtained from either a light aircraft or a UAV is a powerful and cost effective solution for 3D mapping.
Microsoft and Google are both invested in this market and actively collecting imagery to serve this market. They include:
- 3D Models of Line of Sight View Sheds on a global basis
- Monitor corridors for threats to wire networks such as infringement of vegetation
