Airborne LiDAR


[ lahy-dahr ]
noun Electronics, Optics.
  1. a device similar to radar in principle and operation but using infrared laser light instead of radio waves and capable of detecting particles, distant objects, and varying physical conditions in the atmosphere.


African Consulting Surveyors owns and operates the following Aerial LiDAR systems:

  2 High Altitude Airborne LiDAR Systems

  2 High Density Medium Altitude Airborne LiDAR Systems

  1 High Density Low Altitude Airborne LiDAR System

  2 Large Format Camera Systems

 1 Standard Format Camera System

  1 Oblique Fully Integrated Camera System

LiDAR mapping allow us to capture 100’s of square kilometres of the earth’s surface in a single day, currently making it by far the most cost effective solution for large project areas. LiDAR ground space sampling can vary up to 100 points per square meter allowing for accurate and detailed data capture. Our LiDAR systems also provide multiple returns per single pulse allowing penetration through any vegetation and therefore capturing accurate ground elevation data.
At the same time we also capture high definition aerial photography ranging from 5cm to 10cm image resolution. These images are then combined with the LiDAR data to produce ortho-photo imagery to accuracies of 1.5 times that of the image resolution.
African Consulting Surveyors has a range of different airborne platforms and LiDAR systems available to our disposal throughout the African continent to save the client on costly mobilisations and are tailored for specific projects sizes and requirements.
