The level of technology that we are currently at in today’s society is pretty astounding. We have the ability to apply relatively new knowledge and machinery to processes that past generations would have a much harder time going about doing. And there are some processes that we can easily navigate today that did not exist just decades or centuries ago. This is why our species and societies are able to advance at such incredible rates. Provided we start taking better care of the earth, we are bound to see many more decades and centuries of these amazing advancements.
What can an aerial survey company do?
An aerial survey company is just one example of a business that employs fairly new techniques to obtain information for the efficient furtherance of a larger scale operation. For example, some aerial surveys could be seeking data on the existence or migration patterns of certain species in the wild. Other surveys collect information about water sources and the status of the environment. Whatever the case, the ability to fly overhead to get a fresh and accurate perspective of the ground below is very valuable. Many times, an aerial survey company could be called to assess the impact or magnitude of a serious environmental disturbance, such as an oil spill.
Looking for the bigger picture
There are plenty of times that getting up close and personal really helps to figure things out. And there are other times that, to really understand the situation, it is crucial to get the bigger picture. Aerial surveys help with the big picture necessities. When you need to check out the surface water quality of nearby lakes and ponds, or need some environmental consulting for the local state park, aerial survey information is exactly what you need. It is this type of work that leads to the critical conclusion that about 45% of streams across the United States, along with 47% of the lakes and 32% of bays are actually polluted. These are devastating numbers, both for the wildlife that calls these bodies of water home, and for the human populations nearby that depend on this water.
Human advancements are incredible. There seems to be no limit to what we can do or will be able to do eventually. However we have also been pretty successful so far at getting in our own way, by neglecting the earth and failing to take care of this beautiful planet we call home. With the use of aerial surveys and other technology, we can start to get back on the right track, ensuring more time and resources for many generations to come.
