Digital Design Imaging Services specializes in helping clients plan for and take advantage of potential views from skyscrapers. We produce accurate viewshed studies as a means to document line of sight views used in security sweeps, mapping, crowd counting and visual impact studies.
We capture these amazing aerial point clouds with proprietary multi camera clusters flying under our tethered surveillance aerostat balloon. (Unmanned)
DDIS developed this lighter than air platform to help crowd counters, planners and first responders get an accurate sense of the size and extents of a crowd or complex space.

Gee could you make me a kite based synth from South point diving cliffs....near a huge blow hole. I'll trade you something I shot for it. It is my favorite place on earth...southern most point of the usa.

Appreciated your compliments on my airphotosLIVE.com photosynths. Are you still using a kite or a helium assisted kite? Hydrogen in this simple environment would be better for lift and cost. How do you turn these great images into dollars? Stay in touch.

I enjoyed your frustrating fixed camera postioning your tutorial. To give New Yorkers ultimate liberation from fixed cameras I took a number of aerial photosynths from our custom tethered aerostat balloon at various altitudes above NYC. If you are reading this then type airphotoslive and ddis in your Photosynth browser and enjoy the ride. See in particular what we (and MS) agree is the largest fully 'synthy' collection to date. It was above the Manhattan Bridge. Love to get your comments.
