Unmanned Aircraft System
read moreAn Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS), commonly referred to as a drone, makes it possible to collect data through standard remote sensing technologies without the risks and costs associated with traditional manned flight. By providing clients with photogrammetry and/or LiDAR of their projects-from vantages they were traditionally unable to access-WithersRavenel enables clients to make more informed decisions more quickly and to highlight their accomplishments when the project is complete. By utilizing a more specialized UAS, WithersRavenel can also provide topographic surveys, 3D surface models, 3D models of structures, structural inspections, and thermal solutions such as heat and cold loss for structures, roof inspections, and landfill assessments.

read moreLiDAR is the process of using a laser beam coupled with a rangefinder to capture the shape and position of all visible surfaces and objects. Aerial LiDAR performed using a laser mounted to an unmanned aircraft system (UAS), or drone, is best used to obtain dense 3D data over larger areas. LiDAR is sometimes referred to as High-Definition Surveying (HDS) or laser scanning because its use of a laser offers greater data density and increased surface coverage for a higher resolution overall survey.
