Aerial photography is simply a vehicle to convey valuable information about your physical location. In many situations, aerial photography is the best tool to use to solve vexing communications problems.

Here are a few ways that Bordner Aerial photography has been used to solve difficult communication problems — or provide delight to their owners.

Media Illustrations

The New York Times found our before and after images perfect to illustrate an article on disputes arising from a city’s use of eminent domain.

Why did the accident happen?

An accident investigator had Bordner Aerial shoot this vertical aerial photograph for his accident reconstruction of a school bus/auto accident scene.

Preventing children’s deaths

Railroad insurance agents used this aerial photography to explain the scenario that led to neighborhood children being on the railroad tracks leading to their death.

Property disputes

Property owners were engaged in a dispute over the size of a pond claimed to have increased in size due to run-off from a hotel parking lot. Bordner Aerial’s historic aerial photographs showed that the pond was in fact larger at many times in the past, prior to the hotel construction.


Legal issues

Attorneys used aerial photographs of highway construction to support their contention of decreased access and loss of business by adjacent businesses.

The Insurance Adjuster

An insurance adjuster hired Bordner Aerials to provide this aerial photography to aid in his investigation of this fire scene.

Ease of access to the property

This retailer used aerial photographs to demonstrate the ease of access his proposed store site would have from the nearby freeway system.

Population density means success

This retailer used aerial photographs to show the density of population in the area surrounding the center where he was located.

Investment progress

This residential builder used aerial photography to show his company executives the progress of their new housing community as it progressed over the years. He used these images in his annual board presentations.

The special gift

This woman needed a unique gift for her husband’s birthday. She hit the jackpot with her sports oriented hubby by remembering his fondness for Metropolitan Stadium and giving him this unique aerial photograph from our stock photographs of Metropolitan Stadium with a Vikings game in progress.

Your dream site completion

This couple had put a lot of work into their dream home. This aerial photograph was the best way to show their work and pride in the entire property and buildings where they lived.
