LiDAR

Our LiDAR drones use a combined LiDAR+RGB Module to create a 3D point cloud and model, and our experienced operators understand which data points to manipulate to allow you to measure distances between objects, monitor for vegetation encroachment, or monitor and measure changes in your critical infrastructure.

Perhaps one of the most powerful modeling tools on the market, LiDAR has been in use for decades as a proven technology to record precise 3D modeling data. Technological evolution has seen usage in the commercial industry increase in recent years, as LiDAR systems have become smaller and more affordable while continuing to provide increased quality and quantities of data. LiDAR refers to the process of using laser light reflection to collect massive quantities of data to create a 3D representation of a real-world object or location.

The quantity and quality of data LiDAR produce make it the best choice where there is a need to capture a large volume of data with a high amount of detail. For example, where there is a need to capture data where buildings or vegetation should be excluded since the number of pulses fired allow closer data groupings than other modeling technologies – allowing LiDAR to see around surface structures to the bare earth below.

While the large quantities and quality of data provide useful insights, LiDAR does have a high cost of implementation. Additionally, while LiDAR provides truth through height volume, each individual data point provides a level of uncertainty – meaning an inexperienced operator may select the wrong set of data points crucial to determining the size, shape, or height of a structure or asset.

That’s where we come in.

Slide Biology & Conservation
LiDAR’s ability to capture vast amounts of detail in a single pass has provided a variety of practical uses in biology and conservation.

From remote sensing to assess biodiversity, to monitoring habitat structure, studying forest ecology, undertaking coastal surveys, and conducting vulnerability assessments – LiDAR is a frequently used tool to provide in depth data, with an incredibly high amount of detail.

Slide Forestry
The importance of forests cannot be understated. Forests are essential to our survival. In addition to providing animal habitats and air for humans, forests also play a major role in climate change mitigation, provide watershed protection, and prevent soil erosion.

Whether managing forests as a whole, measuring forest canopy, identifying deforestation risk, or monitoring the growth of forest inventory; LiDAR provides accurate and cost-effective methods for large scale surveys due to its ability to measure both the forest canopy structure as well as the ground underneath in a single pass.
Slide Geology & Soil Science Understanding the geology and underlying geotechnical structure of the earth is fundamental for economic, social, and environmental development. Acquiring geological data can be a costly, time-consuming, and often dangerous process.

From initial site investigations, to mapping, monitoring and managing natural hazards and resources, to soil profiling – LiDAR has proven to be an essential tool for providing time-dependent data, over large and sometimes inaccessible or hazardous areas.
Slide Asset Management Whether examining bridge for potential faults, developing 3D models of linear infrastructure, or measuring wind speeds to assess the effectiveness of wind turbines; LiDAR provides a safe and accurate method to collect critical data for maintaining your assets. Slide Public Safety & Disaster Management
One of the growing uses of LiDAR is as a tool for use in public safety and disaster management. When public safety is at risk, or a disaster occurs, first response teams need access to readily available, accurate information.

Particularly in the area of disaster management and response, LiDAR and the visualization of point cloud data have allowsed emergency responders to easily identify areas most affected by an event. from generating detail topographic maps ahead of an event, to acquiring highly accurate data as a support for relief work, more knowledge means better preparedness and response.

Mining & Exploration
There are many potential applications for aerial photogrammetry in cultural heritage projects. Perhaps the most readily apparent is its use as a tool to survey, model, and preserve cultural sites and artifacts.

Blending key elements of mapping, modelling and asset inspections, drone-based photogrammetry in cultural heritage can help to capture, catalog, share information about sites around the world enabling experts to view true to life renderings and visualizations of historic sites, as well as the locations and artifacts within them.

Slide Architecture & Engineering LiDAR is an ideal tool for designing and constructing new buildings, or retrofitting and redesigning existing ones – generating high-speed surveys that offer a precise digital map of the terrain and surrounding profile.

Due to LiDAR’s large data volumes and increased accuracy, it’s possible to capture the tiny details in building facades with great accuracy. This allows generation of accurate records of a buildings present condition, including the identification of potential structural deformations or other faults.
