Z/I DMC Digital Sensor


For many decades Carl Zeiss Photogrammetry Division developed and manufactured high performance aerial photography systems. Since October 1999 and Zeiss' collaborative introduction of the company, Z/I Imaging, many advances have been made in aerial imagery collection. The DMC panchromatic digital sensor (Digital Mapping Camera) was born out of this effort.

The DMC construct was a revolutionary one. It was developed to contain 4 panchromatic sensor modules and up to 4 additional multispectral camera modules. In the post-flight processing the 4 panchromatic images are stitched together to make one large-format high resolution image. The new high res image is then combined with the desired additional multispectral channels for a remarkably high resolution panchromatic color or color infrared imagery. The DMC is gyroscopically stabilized and equipped with forward motion control.

This sensor is the ideal solution for wide area mapping, county mapping, urban mapping and is excellent for all other large-format mapping requirements.

Our Background with the Z/I Digital Mapping Camera



The flight crews that work with the DMC here at Williams Aerial & Mapping, Inc. had over 1,800 flight hours in 2014. It is this experience in the air that gives us the advantage of the most accurate and high quality collection. From start to finish, the production team has the highest of standards and attention to detail. The quality of product you will receive comes from the combination of Williams high level of expertise and it's superior sensors.

We pride ourselves in processing the data for your job in house with a highly trained and experienced team. With a total of over 60 years of photogrammetry background, our team will develop a solution to fit any requirements for your project.


Williams Aerial & Mapping, Inc. has a rich history in the creation of planimetric and topographic maps. Beginning as the photogrammetry department with Clyde E. Williams and Associates, the company had it's origins in 1941. Today Williams is a thriving firm of Professional Photogrammetrists. We look forward to hearing from you as you search out the right fit for your project.
