Tim Briggs is shown here with the UAS used to collect aerial imagery of Le Sueur County.

Imagery that once took months to process now could be available to Minnesota’s Le Sueur County in just days. On top of that, the county is the state’s first to use this type of technology.

Le Sueur County contracted with Tim Briggs, president of AeroLogix Consulting, to use his unmanned aircraft system (UAS) to collect high-resolution aerial imagery. It used to be that the county contracted with a company to fly a piloted airplane over the area to collect imagery, which was typically done about every four years, according to Le Sueur County Geographic Information Systems Specialist Justin Lutterman.

Now, should the county need it, Briggs could be available to collect imagery with his UAS within two hours of a phone call, process the imagery and have it in the hands of the county the next day.
