use reliable LiDAR for UAVs
Unlike photogrammetry, LiDAR 3D mapping can penetrate vegetation.
Laser scanning works in low-contrast or shadowy situations, even at night!
It is easier to use and
less cumbersome to process the data.
Our aerial approach can cover a zone faster and with more homogeneous result than traditional ground mapping techniques using terrestrial or mobile technologies. YellowScan is committed to help leading the LiDAR revolution in remote sensing and GIS 3D mapping.
Our solutions are ideally suited for:
- Small areas (<10 km² or 100 km linear)
- Need to penetrate vegetation
- Hard-to-access zones
- Data needed in near real-time / frequently / regularly
- Accuracy range of 2.5-15 cm
How It Works
What is LIDAR?
Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) is a laser-based remote sensing technology. The idea behind LiDAR is quite simple, point a small laser at a surface and measure the time it takes the laser to return to its source.
This technology is used in geographical information systems (GIS) to produce digital elevation model (DEM) or digital terrain model (DTM) for 3D mapping models.
LiDAR operating principle:
- Emission of a laser pulse
- Record of the backscattered signal
- Distance measurement (Time of travel x speed of light)
- Retrieving plane position and altitude
- Computation of precise echo position
