Complete UAV (Drone) and 3D Laser Scanning Services for Surveying, Mapping and GIS

Our UAV and Laser Scanning Team employ high performance drones and laser scanners in conjunction with advanced sensors and software to deliver accurate geospatial mapping and modeling solutions.

These mapping and modeling services are ideally suited for the reconnaissance of potential development properties, linear utility corridor assignments, existing campus and building assessments, construction site monitoring, and forensic and disaster evaluation.

Four Major Reasons to Use Our UAV and Laser Scanning Team:

  1. Geospatial mapping with drones and laser scanners provides quick and efficient field time savings.

  2. Drones and laser scanners facilitates geospatial mapping in areas that are difficult or dangerous to access with conventional methods.

  3. Data reconnaissance with drones and laser scanners provides improved coverage over conventional methods which minimizes and often eliminates the need for supplemental field work.

  4. The geospatial mapping from drones and laser scanners afford a design/assessment ready product for site engineering/building architectural design or assessment.
