What is LiDAR Drone?

A LiDAR drone that uses Light Detection and Ranging, or LiDAR, is a type of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). LiDAR is a type of remote sensing that measures distances and produces fine-grained, three-dimensional point clouds or maps of the Earth’s surface using laser pulses.

LiDAR drones are used in various applications, including Mapping and Surveying, Forestry, Agriculture, Environmental Monitoring, Infrastructure Inspection, Archaeology and Cultural Heritage and Disaster Response and Management etc. 

LiDAR drones offer advantages such as speed, accuracy, and the ability to cover vast areas efficiently. They have become an essential tool in various industries where precise and detailed 3D mapping and data collection are required.
