Comprehensive Geospatial Solutions

Airborne Imaging (A Barr Geospatial Company) is a leading provider of geospatial services using aerial LiDAR and NADIR imaging sensors, to help map assets and critical infrastructure across North America.

We combine proven technology with our vast experience and methodologies to capture, process and evaluate LiDAR and imagery data to the highest quality levels and standards. We operate throughout North America on a daily basis, but have also performed work on other continent’s to help our international clientele.
