Vancouver-based PhotoSat, founded in 1993, has invented a new technology to produce highly accurate topographic maps from satellite photos.

We specialize in topographic mapping for civil engineering infrastructure projects and the planning and design of resource development projects. Our clients are oil and gas, mining, oil sands, engineering, and environmental companies and government agencies.

Our expertise in geophysical data processing methods combined with extensive experience has resulted in the world’s most accurate satellite-based topographic mapping. We have delivered over 500 mapping projects, and produce data with better than 30cm elevation accuracy.

PhotoSat’s goal is to provide engineering quality satellite topographic surveys that shorten project timelines and eliminate survey delays.

Our team is comprised of geophysicists, engineers, and associated geoscientists with the expertise and experience to create time-saving solutions for the planning and development of resource projects.
