Thermal Mapping Services
Aerial Thermal Imaging specializes in mapping large areas, such as oil and gas fields, university campuses, industrial facilities, municipality owned sewer systems, rivers, rooftops, solar panel arrays and more. Our thermographic deliverables can simply be raw thermographs, to large seamless radiometric mosaics. Our mosaics are globally contrast adjusted, radiometric (meaning they contain temperature data), georeferenced and orthorectified.
Drone Thermal Mapping Services USA
Depending on the scope of your project, we are skilled in collecting imagery from unmanned or manned aircraft. Both platforms can collect many different bands of infrared, visual, thermal, lidar, even sniff for fugitive hydrocarbons, all in day or night operations.
Common projects for Thermal Mapping Services are:
- Government agencies to understand geothermal activity.
- Large campuses to identify leaks from steam and condensate return lines, hot water lines, chilled water lines, supply water mains, distribution pipes, storm water drains, building heat loss and water saturated membrane rooftops.
- Municipalities to discover where pressurized sewer lines are leaking in remote location
We are able to deliver any spatial resolution requested and popular formats like GIS and CAD. Maps are also available in our tool, MapTemp. MapTemp allows you to visually explore temperatures in map format from a secure web portal. With just a click of a mouse, you’ll be able to know the exact temperature at any given location.
It is true that a picture is worth a thousand words; so get the big picture of your property – directly from Aerial Thermal Imaging.

Drone Thermal Mapping
Can a drone find building issues?
Yes, a drone thermal building inspection could discover structural faults in your property.
Drones can find various different building issues such as:
- Missing fascia
- Water compromised insulation
- Standing or pooling water
- Corrosion issues
- Wind damage
- Energy loss
- Missing or damaged insulation
What is Thermography used for?
Thermography has a long history, although its use has increased dramatically with the commercial and industrial applications of the past fifty years.
Maintenance technicians use thermography to locate overheating joints and sections of power lines, which are a sign of impending failure. Building construction technicians can see thermal signatures that indicate heat leaks in faulty thermal insulation and can use the results to improve the efficiency of heating and air-conditioning units.
How are Drones used for Mapping?
Drones are used for Thermal Mapping, Agricultural Mapping and Photogrammetric Mapping
What is Thermography?
Infrared thermography, thermal imaging, and thermal video are examples of infrared imaging science. Thermographic cameras usually detect radiation in the long-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum and produce images of that radiation, called thermograms.
What is Thermal Mapping?
Thermal Mapping is a vehicle-based survey technique, scientifically proven to identify and quantify the distribution of temperature differences across a highway network. Infrared thermography (IRT), thermal imaging, and thermal video are examples of infrared imaging science. It shows a visual picture so temperatures over a large area can be compared.

Some of the technology we employ include a manned or unmanned rotor, fixed or multirotor aircraft, hosting infrared camera cores. After the images are captured they are placed in a mosaic format and integrated with geo-database information using ArcGIS software. Our maps are globally contrast adjusted, with final deliverables as a digital file formatted to meet the client’s requirements such as CAD, GIS, PDF, thermal infrared (TIR), multi-spectral imagery (MSI), hyperspectral imagery (HIS), Google Earth Overlay, etc.
There is also a way to visually explore thermal deliverables in MapTemp, a patented software developed by Aerial Thermal Imaging to help solve a problem with the way users are able to understand and interpret temperature maps. Click the button below to explore a demo of our MapTemp software.
