Drone LIDAR Scans for Surveys



The arrival of new technology and the right RPAS, means powerful lasers can penetrate through the canopies and obtain very accurate ground surface readings in order to create a precise model.

Reliable, accurate LIDAR data can be achieved without flying a manned aircraft at much larger expense. In addition, our RPAS can fly in most weather conditions, by day or night and with less risk factors. 





 LIDAR  The YellowScan       

"YellowScan Mapper "  Made in France. Our first choice for quality in drone LiDAR systems. It integrates the Livox AVIA laser scanner with a high-performance GNSS-aided INS. This lightweight, standalone, and easy-to-use lidar system gives accurate (The LIDAR boasts 2.5CM -3.0 CM precision at 100M AGL) and stable results over a wide range of applications. The LIDAR fits onto our new DJI M300 survey drone.

Why Mapper ?

The YellowScan Mapper features an Applanix INS giving it a fast, stable, and high-accuracy result. It follows the entire Applanix processing workflow to get cm-level reliable results Cloud Station processing software includes terrain module, strip adjustment, and the color module for creating high-resolution point-clouds. 

Data processing turnaround times are a fraction of what it takes for photogrammetry, and LiDAR scans can be completed in low light conditions


Data Processing? 

When you hire VAP for LIDAR work, your team will also get exclusive access to YellowScan software for LiDAR Cloud Station processing software.
