Aerial LiDAR for High-Resolution Mapping
Higher accuracy for large sites
LiDAR is the process of using a laser beam coupled with a rangefinder to capture the shape and position of all visible surfaces and objects. The average laser scan yields more than one hundred million data points. Using a drone-mounted laser scanner, WithersRavenel’s remote pilots can survey large tracts of land more quickly and more completely than conventional surveys.
Greater data density yields unique visualizations
The data points captured by a laser scan can be grouped into a point cloud database and manipulated using a variety of software applications to produce as-built drawings, contour maps, colorized slope maps, and other deliverables.
A safe solutions for hard-to-traverse sites
Our aerial LiDAR equipment is also excellent at penetrating vegetation, broadening the range of environments where it can be used. Aerial LiDAR brings flexibility, scalability, and accuracy to the decision-making process.
