Need help with your LiDAR project?

Let’s talk! Our team of experts can help you clarify your needs and propose the most suitable solutions for you to successfully complete your mission.


Your way to thorough sustainable forestry.

Modern forest management starts with obtaining precise data.

LiDAR offers exceptional accuracy and is becoming the preferred technique for forestry management. Aerial LiDAR surveying generates imagery data that can result in 3D mapping and can penetrate vegetation.

Key benefits

Forests but in 3D

YellowScan LiDAR systems provide something that basic aerial and satellite imagery cannot: 3D forest structure pointclouds, which show the vertical structure of a forest canopy.

With the help of our solutions, you can calculate individual tree heights, map forest coverage, and assess vegetation density by penetrating the trees and producing a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) level.


Inside-canopy information

YellowScan LiDAR systems provide a higher point density and more echoes under canopies, resulting in more localized and dense information.

Tree health monitoring

Monitor the health of trees for early detection of pests and diseases to mitigate outbreaks or even to understand the characteristics of forest fires.

Increased productivity

Processing LiDAR data is much faster than photogrammetry.

Freedom of surveying

Drone surveys allow for more administrative freedom and are cost-effective tools to quickly map large areas.

Rugged & Reliable

Compatible with difficult field conditions such as extreme temperatures, humidity, dust, etc.
