Commonly unpressurized survey aircrafts performing photo flights at high altitudes.
In some cases, pressurized Turboprop or Jet driven airplanes are in use. Flights executed at high altitudes producing small scale aerial photography images.
Technical problems in the entire workflow show up commonly at high altitudes. Not only caused operating an aircraft in FL150 and higher, also related to the image quality (haze and atmospheric influences) and image accuracies later on in processing. Most image accuracy related problems are cause in air pressure and temperature.

Das in stark zunehmenden Maße gebräuchliche Verfahren in der Photogrammetrie zur Orthophotoproduktion und Kartenherstellung stellt sich als eine Anzahl vielfältiger Einzelprozesse dar. Die Luftbildaufnahme ist einer dieser Schritte. Nach wie vor Stand der Technik sind filmbasierte Kameras mit analoger Datenaufzeichnung auf Film. Sie sind die letzte Lücke in dem ansonsten digitalen Prozess. Mit der Markteinführung der Digitalen Mapping Kamera (DMC) schliesst Z/I Imaging die digitale Prozesskette. Der Nutzen für den Anwender liegt in der Vereinfachung, Vereinheitlichung und Beschleunigung des gesamten Prozesses mit einer gleichzeitigen Erweiterung der Anwendungs-möglichkeiten sowie dem Erzielen von Qualitätsverbesserungen der Bilddaten durch die Digitaltechnik.
