LiDAR 3D mapping is a versatile technology that unlike passive sensing methods such as photogrammetry can penetrate vegetation and operate in dark lighting situations. LiDAR is a more applicable, user-friendly technology providing data that is faster and easier to process.
Mapping accurately through vegetation is challenging. And while photogrammetry can be used for bare earth mapping, it is not nearly as effective as LiDARLiDAR, or light detection and ranging, is a tool used to quickly, accurately and densely measure 3D features from the world around us. LiDAR is a form of “remote sensing” - meaning we aren’t physically measuring things with our hands, but rather, using sensors. for mapping through thick vegetation.

Drone Lidar have been disrupting various industries for years, but the construction industry has perhaps seen the greatest potential for drone technology. With its complex and lengthy process involving multiple phases and tasks, the construction industry has been ripe for disruption. Early adopters saw the potential for drones to streamline old processes, cut costs, and improve efficiency and safety. But there are still many untapped use cases for construction and engineering firms.
