Leica ContentMapper Airborne Imaging Sensor

The new airborne mapping solution for efficient large scale geospatial content collection

The Leica ContentMapper is the innovative and highly efficient airborne imaging sensor for large-scale geospatial mapping projects. With 40,000 pixels across swath, this latest generation camera provides maximum performance when capturing high-resolution imagery and double the image resolutions at the same flying parameters compared to previous systems. The sensor is purpose-built to maximise imaging performance and features all of Leica Geosystems’ latest technology configured for large-scale to country-sized imagery projects.

High-Performance Optics


The ContentMapper is the first large-format camera based on the innovative and modular MFC150 optical system in a custom configuration and built for speed and efficiency during imagery collection. The high-performance, metric CMOS technology delivers higher accuracy thanks to calibrated custom-built lenses in RGB and NIR.

Best Image Quality


Each of the integrated optical units feature Leica Geosystems’ unique mechanical forward-motion-compensation (FMC), which maximises performance and provides the highest image detail in a wide range of operating conditions. Thanks to mechanical FMC, exposure time can be lengthened without increasing image blur from aircraft movement Better exposure times also produce imagery with less noise and sharper details.

Processing Efficiency


Combining the ContentMapper with the Leica HxMap high-performance workflow provides a powerful and scalable end-to-end airborne mapping solution configured for the largest geospatial mapping programs. The unified processing software features the latest innovations in selective sharpening and auto colour correction.

Innovation Roadmap


The ContentMapper sensor configuration will benefit Leica Geosystems’ roadmap as the cutting-edge optics will be integrated into future imaging solutions. The system will provide a technological foundation for the next-generation large-format camera, providing our customers with solutions that meet today’s and tomorrow’s requirements.

The HxGN Content Program, the most extensive library of aerial imagery and elevation models, utilizes the ContentMapper for high efficiency data capture around the Globe. Visit the HxGN Content Program website to learn more about their data collection partnerships.
