The Community Impact & Benefit of Spexi Aerial Imagery

What is Spexi?

Spexi captures & delivers aerial imagery to organizations, local governments and government agencies to better prepare for disasters, enable smart cities, remotely inspect infrastructure, monitor natural resources, and so much more.

Spexi data is used for:

  • Emergency preparedness planning

  • Monitoring the health of natural resources

  • Urban planning & development

  • And much more.

We capture aerial imagery by working with drone pilots from your community, ensuring that funds are reinvested into your local economy.

How does Spexi benefit your community?

Community Impact

There are numerous practical and strategic ways Spexi imagery benefits your community.

  • Spexi works with government agencies to reduce the likelihood and mitigate the impact of wildfires and other natural disasters.

  • The data we provide local governments are used for urban planning to improve land use, community planning and to reduce traffic congestion.

  • Government agencies and organizations rely on Spexi data to monitor the health of our forests, rivers and water resources.

  • Ride hailing and food delivery apps rely on aerial imagery data to ensure travelers and deliveries arrive on time and safely.

  • Virtual reality platforms and games rely on Spexi data to create immersive experiences.

Reinvesting in Your Local Economy

Spexi works with drone pilots from your local community. This ensures that funds are reinvested into your local economy.

These are just a handful of ways Spexi benefits our communities.

Is Spexi safe?

Safety is our number one priority. To ensure the safety of our communities & airspace, Spexi takes a number of measures & precautions:

  • Spexi Does Not Fly in Restricted Airspace - The Spexi airspace system has been designed to work within the widely available civilian aviation airspace charts and systems such as VTA's and VNC.

    Spexi does not operate:

    • Near take-off and landing areas of airports & aerodromes

    • Over CYR airspaces such as prisons and military installations

  • Adhere to Flight Regulations - Many countries worldwide have adopted drone regulations that drone pilots must follow to operate lawfully and safely. Some of the widely adopted guidelines that Spexi has included are:

    • Drones will never fly above 400ft AGL while capturing Spexigons. Operations are standardized at 80m (~260ft AGL) as this height produces the ideal image resolution.

    • The Spexi airspace system has been designed to be flown within Visual Line of Sight (VLOS) flight rules. Spexigons are a certain size to promote Visual flight

  • Spexi Pilot Training - The Spexi platform has high-quality online training resources for pilots of any experience level to gain a base level of knowledge and best practices.

Spexigons have been designed to be flown within Visual Line Of Sight (VLOS). At all times, pilots are meant to act as the primary Detect and Avoid (DAA) function. This ensures pilots can make an emergency descent or maneuver in the unlikely event a manned aircraft enters their vicinity.

If and when Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operating guidelines and regulations come into effect, the Spexi platform may adjust its operating parameters to allow for larger-scale data capture per operator.

How does Spexi protect privacy?

Spexi ensures personal privacy by capturing images at an altitude of 250ft AGL (Above Ground Level), which is low enough for high-resolution images but high enough that faces, license plates, and house numbers will not be recognizable.

Similar to Google & Apple Maps, image blurring may also be implemented to ensure personal privacy.

Below is a sample of the type of image Spexi captures.
