iSparks Solutions primary services include Aerial Photography, Videography & Photogrammetry. We have completed UAV Training, UAV Pilots Licensing, Thermography and Agisoft PhotoScan 3d Model Training, acquired Special Risk Aviation Insurance and achieved a Standing Special Flight Operations Certificate from Transport Canada for Ontario.

We have completed inspections of Aggregate Resources, Bridges for the Ministry of Transportation and Roofs including the Rogers Centre in downtown Toronto.  We collect the information and create a preliminary report to be handed off to Engineers, Architect or Aggregate Resource Teams.

We have also created videos for special events like weddings, business promotional videos, and real estate brokers.  Captured sporting events like the Xterra, Pedaling for Parkinson’s and worked with authorities to complete Search and Rescues over water and islands with our thermal camera.  We have also been Guest Speakers at conferences educating Realtors about ‘Using Drones in Real Estate’.

Greatest Accomplishments

  • Legally and safely using drones to save companies money and completing data acquisition in an organized and accurate manner. For example, we were hired by an Engineering company in Toronto to collect thermal images using our infrared camera attached to our drone to put together a report for their engineers so they could accurately report on the state of the roof of the Rogers Centre in Toronto.       This project took us five days on site to complete; whereas if they had to utilize their own resource team (without the use of a UAV) it could have taken close to a month and would have required extensive safety equipment, hand held infrared cameras and the creation of a reporting content management system.

 

  • Created 3d models of aggregate resource fields (sand, gravel, rock queries) and completed volumetric measurement and analysis of their inventory saving their companies thousands of dollars, weeks of time and effort and mitigating the risk of their staff getting hurt and claiming wsib. The volume measurements were accurate; we were fast and extremely cost effective and efficient.

 

  • Created a music video for an award winning country/gospel musician from Texas in Parry Sound with over 100,000 views on YouTube and beyond. We were able to create, organize the crew, and edit the video and publish within 1 week from start to finish.

  • Created a business promotional video for the Island Queen Cruise in Parry Sound promoting tourism in our area.

  • Completed websites for several businesses and marketed their businesses on social media outlets here are a couple of examples:

www.seguinvalley.com, www.nearnorthrecreation.ca, www.aquagraphics.ca, http://homesteadwellness.ca/, www.gbcustoms.ca, www.myrhanda.com

  • In London, ON, for the Ministry of Transportation and Western University we completed aerial bridge inspections and wrote reports of our findings which were passed onto their engineers to determine the state of the bridges and the amount of delamination in the base course below the pavement. We used our infrared camera to capture this data and we used our 4k cameras to capture and create a 3d model of the bridge.

 

  • We also use our drone to capture images of a location being scouted by the movie production team and to create 3d models of those areas including fields, which can be used by their CGI creative teams. Instead of actually filming in these areas they use our 3d models.

 

  • Regularly capture images and video of Real Estate Listings in Muskoka, Parry Sound, Pointe Au Baril, Bracebridge, Huntsville, McKellar, MacTier, Georgian Bay to increase the visibility of a property listing both commercially and privately.  Working closely with Brokers and Agents from ReMax, Royal LePage, Carriage Trade Luxury Properties and Homelife.
