Drone LiDAR Solutions

Advanced Light Detection and Ranging

LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that utilises a laser pulse to determine and measure variable distances to terrain through the use of an Aerologix airborne surveying aircraft, equipped with a LiDAR capable payload. Combined with other geospatial data collected from the onboard sensors, Aerologix is able to construct precise three dimensional point cloud models and extrapolate information about structures and surrounding terrestrial characteristics. From this data, Aerologix is able to provide clients with highly accurate and detailed point cloud model of structures, terrain and critical infrastructure, in a cost effective and timely manner.

World-First Drone Technology to Capture Complex Structures and Terrain in Unprecedented Detail

Aerologix through the utilisation of the DJI Matrice 300 is able to provide clients with a one stop surveying solution, which allows for real time high accuracy LiDAR + RGB surveying capabilities, efficiently capturing complex structures and terrain in high levels of detail which can then be extrapolated into high fidelity 3D and point cloud models.

Drone LiDAR: Revolutionizing Precision Mapping from Above

Drone LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, represents a groundbreaking technology that has revolutionised the way we perceive and interact with the world from above. This cutting-edge system employs laser light to measure distances with exceptional accuracy, allowing for highly detailed and precise mapping of terrain, objects, and structures.

In drone technology, LiDAR plays a pivotal role in augmenting mapping capabilities. Unlike traditional surveying methods, Drone LiDAR provides a three-dimensional perspective with unparalleled detail and efficiency. The technology works by emitting laser pulses towards the ground and measuring the time it takes for the reflected light to return to the sensor. This rapid data collection enables the creation of highly accurate and intricate maps, even in challenging terrains.

Advantages of Drone LiDAR

One of the key advantages of Drone LiDAR is its ability to penetrate dense vegetation, providing detailed insights into forested areas, agricultural landscapes, and other environments that were once difficult to survey comprehensively. This makes it an invaluable tool for forestry management, environmental monitoring, and precision agriculture.

In construction and infrastructure development, Drone LiDAR enhances the efficiency of topographic surveys and volumetric measurements. The high-resolution data generated aids in designing, planning, and monitoring construction projects with precision, reducing both time and costs.

Moreover, the technology finds applications in disaster response, where rapid and accurate mapping of affected areas is crucial for efficient decision-making and resource allocation. From assessing the aftermath of natural disasters to planning urban development, Drone LiDAR emerges as a versatile and indispensable tool.

As the capabilities of drones continue to evolve, the integration of LiDAR technology propels mapping and surveying into a new era of precision and efficiency. Drone LiDAR not only expands the possibilities of data collection but also opens doors to innovative solutions across various industries, reaffirming its status as a transformative force in the world of aerial technology.

Aerial LiDAR Survey Benefits


More operational flexibility than traditional surveying operations.


Day or night data capture with an expansive array of suitable weather and operating conditions.


Autonomous functionality of the aerial system allows for a minimal crew of only 1-2 qualified personnel, cutting down on the requirements of entire survey teams needing to access a site or area.

Aerial LiDAR+RGB surveying proves a versatile solution for various scenarios. LIDAR surveying offers more operational flexibility than that of traditional surveying operations. Data capture can be either completed during day or night, and due to the IP54 rating of the Aerologix equipment, it can be completed in a wider array of weather and operating conditions, allowing Aerologix to capture data in difficult to access, hazardous or rural sites. The increased level of autonomous functionality of the aerial system means that the operation can be completed using a crew of 1-2 qualified personnel dependent on the complexity of the operation, cutting down on the requirements of entire survey teams needing to access a site or area to obtain the surveying data.

LiDAR Application Scenarios

Our qualified and versatile network of drone pilots are capable of completing a broad range of LiDAR+RGB surveying projects, that can be tailor-made to suite the clients job and location requirements, in a time efficient and cost saving manor.
