Advanced light detection and ranging (LiDAR) land surveys offer numerous advantages over other techniques.
Also known as laser scanning, this technology provides extremely precise control and visualisation through dense point clouds. With cutting-edge drone technology, LiDAR enables laser pulses to penetrate dense vegetation in order to reach the ground surface. This technology is ideal for terrain modelling, works perfectly in low-light conditions, and offers a distinct advantage over photogrammetry. While photogrammetry can deliver a reconstructed digital surface model (DSM), only LiDAR can deliver accurate and survey-grade DSMs and digital terrain models (DSM).
Our use of UAS (unmanned aerial systems) with LiDAR enables highly accurate terrestrial surveying, land surveying, and topographical mapping among other services. Ideal for easement assessments or land surveying, laser scanning is the fastest and most affordable way to survey difficult terrain. We can deliver terrain data in a number of practical formats, including LAS/LAZ laser point clouds, 3D models, DXF/DWG vector files, ground contours, TIN, etc.
