Airport Imagery Archive

Airport orthoimagery; sub-meter accuracy, precision checks, and post processing correction. CompassData has built an archive of GCPs for over 450 airports worldwide and imagery for 325 airports that are certified to DO-200A. We also have access to off the shelf data to support orthoimagery production for over 1,000 airports. The global distribution of our AMDB ready ortho images are displayed on the interactive map.


CompassData was one of the first to receive an FAA exemption for the commercial operation of several unmanned aircraft systems. Our fleet includes the Trimble UX5, Swift Radioplane Lynx M, DJI Phantom 4, DJI Inspire 1, Matrice 100, Matrice 200, and Matrice 600. We have five FAA Certified Remote Pilots ready to fly at a moments notice for your custom high-resolution imagery needs.

Imagery Resale

In addition to being a producer of sub-meter orthoimagery, CompassData is an authorized reseller of DigitalGlobe imagery. We also have access to mono and stereo imagery data from the entire network of imaging satellites, including WorldView 1-4, GeoEye 1, QuickBird and IKONOS. By purchasing DG images at a discount, we can streamline the acquisition of satellite image data and pass the savings onto you.
