Surveying via drones - UAS / UAV

As an innovative system for laser scanning data collection, Laser Scanning Europe has now added data acquisition via UAS / UAV, or colloquially "survey by drone". An incredible 150 hectares can be automatically mapped using this technology. Measurement can be executed on any object or surface that can be flown over, such as:

  • Fields and landscapes
  • Building and planning areas
  • Open-pit mines
  • High-voltage lines
  • Forest edges and planting strips
  • Intersections and highway
  • River and stream courses, including riverbeds
  • Dike profiles
  • and many more
