Billings Oil Spill

In July 2011, an ExxonMobil oil pipeline that ruptured beneath the Yellowstone River fouled more than 150 miles of the waterway between Laurel and Miles City.  In order to monitor and direct cleanup activity, daily aerial flights over the river were performed to identify additional oil locations.  AXIS performed rapid-response ortho processing of the areas affected.  Due to the environmental nature of the project, 4-Band Orthoimagery was delivered so that the analysts could view both True-Color and Color Infrared with one digital orthoimage.
