Aerial Mapping & LiDAR

Aerial Mapping & LiDAR

Drone-based solutions

As nationally preferred mapping consultants, our team works hard to ensure we meet your aerial mapping project needs. You have a choice when it comes to collecting geospatial data. Traditional photogrammetry, LiDAR, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), and drone technologies have distinct advantages, but the trick is knowing which is best for your project.

Above all else, safety is our top priority, and it’s a major driving factor in our adoption of the most capable drone technology for data collection. Unpredictable environments, complex terrains, and strict timelines can lead to safety concerns for crews. Using drones to collect LiDAR, high-resolution inspection imagery, video, thermography, traditional photogrammetry, and hyperspectral imaging data maintains safety and maximizes production.
