Key benefits

Our LiDAR solutions can capture different levels of vegetation, from the canopy to the ground, which helps analyze forest ecosystems, tree growths, the spread of disease and parasites, and more.

It also captures the 3D structure of the terrain and the vegetation above it, making it a valuable technique in many fields.

Snow cover evaluation

Compare bare and snow-covered terrains to work out the thickness of the snow and to find out where it accumulates. You can also follow the evolution of glaciers or pack ice.

Geologic history

Study the Earth’s surficial processes and landforms.

Mapping biodiversity from above

Obtain spatially accurate and comprehensive biomass evaluation for hazard prevention, effective planning and nature management.

Erosion monitoring

Follow the action of water in fast changing environments, such as coastal cliffs, rivers, canyons and gorges, and more.

Wildlife habitat suitability

Assess and characterize suitable wildlife habitat by getting detailed 3D landscape information not available from other remote sensing applications.
