The second video of the series post [Part 1] is shot in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with members of Keystone Aerial Surveys, and is designed to let users virtually fly with the UltraCamX. Keystone Aerial Surveys is a Microsoft partner that flies throughout the United States, and soon Mexico and Canada, in order to gather imagery for Virtual Earth with the UltraCamX.
“There is a TON of content we cover and I probably should have made this into three separate videos. But seeing as this is the internet age and everyone wants everything right now I decided to make it into one long video. It runs nearly an hour but I promise there is a ton of great information on the UltraCam and we go into deep detail on each step in how it is used to capture the high resolution aerial imagery. What you also may not realize is there is a bunch of technology that goes into the flight planning, the operation of the camera and the flight software in the air and the post-processing of the imagery. I think you’ll find this episode fascinating and I do hope you all enjoy it,” Brown revealed.
