Aerial Lidar Sensor Solutions

Aerial Lidar provides a quick and efficient way to gather data sets of terrain, powerlines, construction projects, forest inventory, stockpile measurements, etc. Aerial Lidar can be defined as a unit that goes on a manned aircraft such as a helicopter or airplane or an unmanned aircraft such as a fixed wing UAV or multirotor drone. 

There are a wide range of sensors that provide affordable and accurate point-cloud data with the option of integrated, high-quality RGB cameras for simultaneous orthomosaic mapping. This allows you to get two datasets from one flight: a point-cloud and a orthosmosaic map. Additionally in post-processing software, you can merge the two to create a colourized point-cloud. 

Many aerial Lidar systems provide a data link transmission that allows the user to see data capture during flight.  Some units provide the ability to mount on many platforms including helicopter, drone or car, providing a unique ability to gather datasets quickly and merge in post processing.

There are many sensors and systems to choose from with RIEGL being the ultimate sensor brand with the longest range and highest accuracy. 

Candrone has been using Lidar technology for many applications including wind turbine inspections and other projects since 2015. Throughout our experience and engagement with our large client base, we have been very satisfied with the Green Valley International product line and therefore strongly recommend their products be considered for our clients. They aren't the only brand we carry, but they are a brand we are thoroughly impressed with.
