Pressbox (Press Release) - Tempe, Arizona - The United States Geological Survey awarded Aerials Express a $1.49 million contract to provide it with stock color digital aerial photography from the company’s 2006 Hurricane Season Imagery collection. The purchase covers the majority of the vulnerable US Gulf Coast and Southeastern Seaboard. All of the imagery was taken in 2006 at a resolution of 1.5 feet per pixel.

“I am very proud of our production team and flight crew,” states Aerials Express CEO Bill Landis. “Their hard work and dedication allowed us to photograph all coastal population centers and large extents of our nation’s coastline in time for the 2006 hurricane season.”

“Aerials Express is in a unique position to create a current nation-wide resource of aerial imagery,” continues Landis. “With our aircraft and those of our partner companies, we maintain the largest collection of current color aerial imagery of US metros at resolutions commercial satellites are unable to duplicate.”
