Benefits of Drone LiDAR Surveys

Maximising Productivity with Drone LiDAR Surveys

What Is A LiDAR Survey?

A LiDAR survey is a remote sensing method that uses laser pulses to capture precise 3D data of the Earth’s surface. The technology involves emitting laser light from a source, which then reflects off objects and surfaces, and the time of flight is used to develop a distance map of the objects in the scene. LiDAR surveys are advantageous due to their speed, accuracy, and ability to generate detailed 3D models of terrain, making them valuable for various industries.

The LiDAR sensor uses pulses of laser light to measure the distance between the drone and the ground or any object on it. These measurements, when processed, can produce a detailed three-dimensional representation of the terrain, structures, and other features within the surveyed area.

Drone LiDAR surveys are typically faster, more cost-effective, and can access more difficult terrains compared to traditional land-based survey methods. They are used in various fields such as urban planning, forestry, environmental science, archaeology and construction.

UK’s Leading Drone LiDAR Survey Provider

UK’s Most Accurate Drone LiDAR Data Collection

Our Drone LiDAR systems employ a process known as “time of flight” to generate precise, three-dimensional information about the Earth’s surface and its unique characteristics. This process involves emitting laser pulses and meticulously measuring the time taken for these pulses to reflect off objects and return to the sensor.

This data, when combined with other information captured by our drones, translates into an accurate and detailed 3D model of the terrain. Trust Drone Survey Services to uncover the minute details of your project area through the power of our advanced drone LiDAR technology.

Fast Data Acquisition with Drone LiDAR

Drone LiDAR Surveys for Detailed Bare Earth Models

The LiDAR data we collect goes through comprehensive data processing, by our in-house geo-technicians, to form a point cloud. This point cloud is a compilation of data points within a three-dimensional coordinate system.

These data points meticulously represent the Earth’s surface features, be it buildings, the diverse vegetation, or the ground itself. Through this intricate point cloud generation, we translate the complexity of our world into a detailed, accessible, and actionable format, providing you a clear perspective of your project area.

Drone LiDAR Survey Applications
Understanding Drone LiDAR Technology

Digital Elevation Models from Drone LiDAR

Drone LiDAR DEM Creation for Diverse Applications

The LiDAR point cloud data serves as the foundation for the creation of a Digital Elevation Model (DEM). This model is a detailed representation of the Earth’s surface, rendered in a raster or grid format, where each cell is assigned an elevation value.

This high-resolution portrayal is further differentiated into two types: Digital Surface Models (DSMs) and Digital Terrain Models (DTMs). DSMs encompass all surface features, including buildings and vegetation, offering a comprehensive view of the area.

On the other hand, DTMs represent the bare ground surface, stripped of any objects, providing a clear perspective of the underlying terrain.

Streamlining Workflow with Drone LiDAR

Custom Drone LiDAR Survey Deliverables for Your GIS Software

The DEMs generated from our drone LiDAR surveys can be employed for a variety of land surveying tasks, including topographic mapping, land use planning, infrastructure development, and environmental monitoring.

These DEMs can be seamlessly integrated and visualised in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other specialised software tools. This compatibility facilitates the analysis and interpretation of data for specific applications tailored to your project needs.

Our in-house geo technicians are readily available for consultation, ensuring your project’s requirements are comprehensively understood and accurately addressed. We ensure the drone LiDAR deliverables are compatible with your specific software, making the data easy to interpret and actionable.
