WHAT WE DO
We utilize the coolest technologies on the planet to capture reality connecting people with their projects through immersive experiences. Our mission is to be the technological interface for our clients, passionately providing the highest quality aerial and geospatial products and service to help make their vision a reality.
Salix was born from over 30 years in the natural resources industry. In that time, we have built incredible relationships working on over a thousand projects taking us all over the West Coast. We have mapped thousands and thousands of acres and our jobs have taken us to some of the most amazing project locations. This journey has developed a profound sense of place in these landscapes, amongst human interfaces and a variety of ecosystems, that has ultimately led us to where we are today.
Salix has put the past few decades of experience and love for the landscape and aviation into motion and is molding their energy into a passionate and focused geospatial and aerial consulting firm. A lot has changed with the landscape and technology but our core focus of putting your project into perspective has not.
