Here’s a short video and description of our Aerial LiDAR services. Aerial LiDAR using drones is an airborne version of terrestrial laser scanning, allowing for the rapid survey of large and complex areas.
The system collects over 700,000 points per second with an average surface density of >700 points per square meter. When surveys are required for terrain covered in vegetation, LiDAR produces detailed digital terrain models and 3D point clouds that could not be achieved using traditional surveying techniques or photogrammetry.
Aerial Lidar can be used for forest inventory, floodplain mapping, hydrology, landscape ecology, coastal engineering, landslide monitoring, erosion and deformation monitoring, survey assessments and volumetric calculations.
