Efficiently gain high accuracy, cost effective mapping

Using a drone LIDAR survey to map a piece of land or a structure will give high-density georeferenced point clouds. These are excellent for providing in depth looks at hard to reach areas. Engineers With Drones provides the latest aerial LiDAR scanning technology. Our comprehensive deliverables enable you to quickly gain accurate 3D imagery and data of land or structures.

What is LiDAR?

LiDAR(light detection and ranging) works by pointing a laser at a target on the ground. The laser then reflects back to the receiver in the LiDAR. This is combined with the GPS signal of the drone to give a more superior accuracy over traditional methods. Our Lidar imaging drone provides a complete overview of areas with dense vegetation, ground elevation and much more. Using Lidar drone technology can cover large, inaccessible and unsafe areas of land in no time at all, with ease and without putting personnel at risk. Gain fast and accurate data collected by our team of qualified drone pilots.

LIDAR Drone Survey Cost

LIDAR drone survey costs varies from project to project. Yet it is very cost effective. By using a drone with its LiDAR capabilities you rule out the cost of having to use a manned aeroplane plus crew, which clearly are not cheap. We are also fully insured to fly wherever needed.

LIDAR Use Cases

Drones equipped with LiDAR can be extremely useful in the following industries:

  • Agriculture
  • Construction
  • Energy
  • Insurance
  • Road Planning
  • Mines
  • Quarries
  • Oil & Gas
  • Archaeology
  • Geology
  • And more…



Develop elevation maps to identify areas in need of improved drainage. Develop 3D models of crops to monitor drought stress at different stages of growth and optimise water usage.


Capture the exact details of the ground, the excavation of the soil, the structures and the buildings to streamline site planning.


Observe ground elevation changes on your field assets. Such as substations, towers and wind turbines.

Advantages of LiDAR

  • Accurate
  • Efficient
  • Safe
  • Easy to read data
  • Can collect data from variety of locations
  • Capable of collecting elevation data in dense vegetation
  • Map inaccessible and featureless areas
  • No geometry distortions

Our Drone Capability

Here at Engineers With Drones we fly the latest cutting edge drones. Our UAV's are selected specifically for the tasks they perform. Drones such as the DJI M300 and payloads such as the Zenmuse H20T with high optical zoom lenses are optimal for safely inspecting high-value assets at a stand-off range.
