UAV LiDAR Survey and Mapping Applications
LiDAR technology has many applications and is especially ideal when high-accuracy measurements are required, or when the area under survey or inspection is dangerous or physically difficult to reach. Drone LiDAR mapping provides many additional benefits, including reduced mission time and manpower requirements, and the ability to obtain quicker results by gathering all required data in a single pass.
Modern LiDAR scanners are capable of achieving a wide field of view (FOV) and offer 360 degree visibility and very high data rates. LiDAR mapping has been used in surveying, cartography, agriculture, forestry, meteorology, mining, environmental management, inspection of utility lines and transport networks, and many other fields.
