Better photogrammetry software by people who have been there.

The tools we needed to perform effectively in the field didn’t exist. So we built them ourselves.

The Aerial Applications Story

Aerial Applications got its start on the service side, performing rapid disaster response for large telecoms.

In too many situations, first responders couldn’t see beyond the next blocked road. Some teams were even relying on paper maps and sticky notes to disseminate information, wasting vital time and energy — two precious resources in an emergency scenario.

Something was missing. We needed to do more than provide fast, accurate data collection. We needed to make it available to everyone, from leadership to workers with boots on the ground. We set out to create better software that takes the limitations and frustrations out of processing, storing, and accessing large amounts of data.

That’s how Mapware by Aerial Applications was born.

Learn about our software

We performed drone data collection in the field for years, so we understand what good photogrammetry software needs to do — and built ours to go above and beyond.


Our powerful technology enabled us to transform from a small business to a strategic Air Force partner in just a few years.


We continue to pursue innovation with other leading companies in big data processing, like our cohort partners in the Verizon 5G First Responder Lab.


Aerial Applications was one of the first drone companies ever deployed for disaster response in the U.S. We’ve responded to 4 out of the last 5 hurricanes that made landfall.


We’ve built custom, specialized UAS and GIS processing solutions for some of the world’s largest companies and government agencies.


The Aerial Applications team has operated more than 1,000 flights and has years of experience with a variety of projects, from pipeline inspections to precision agriculture and beyond.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make advanced geospatial intelligence available to everyone, so organizations can perceive, comprehend, and predict the world around them and act decisively within it.

We aim to empower organizations with automation and AI, enabling them to create detailed, accurate representations in the digital world so they can take action in the physical world.

Our vision

We envision a world where a rich understanding of the physical world is common, and where the digital world can help change the physical world for the better.

As a team, we seek to advance knowledge of the physical world through measurable, searchable, scientifically-sound data.

We believe in people. We believe if we enable people with common, advanced, trustworthy tools of discernment, that they will make decisions that create a happier, safer, healthier world.


Strategic partnership for advanced environmental monitoring

In a four-year R&D project, Aerial Applications will develop a suite of advanced drone technologies that will be used to monitor a wide range of environmental characteristics.
