Send your sensor to the sky with Public Lab's aerial mapping kits

Attach a camera to a balloon, kite, or fishing pole to collect your own "satellite" imagery.

Next, use our open source software MapKnitter to turn your aerial photos into spatial data.

Build the tool you need

Our kits are developed by and for frontline communities. We welcome users to combine, modify, and expand the capacity of our kits.
