One of our well established customers NV5, was featured in an interview with LiDAR News. The article “NV5 Provides Integrated UAV Lidar Mapping Services” was conducted with Lukas Fraser, LiDAR Specialist and Matt O’Brien, UAV Director, at the NV5 office in San Diego, CA.

In December 2017, NV5 acquired Skyscene, a leading provider of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) flight services, headquartered in San Diego, California. Integrating NV5’s LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) mapping technology with Skyscene’s UAV flight services positions, NV5 has become one of the leading UAV LiDAR and aerial mapping service providers in the nation.

“We have not been able to find anything that matches the quality of the RIEGL systems that will fit onto a UAV. Combined with the GNSS receiver and IMU from Applanix, we have developed a workflow for producing survey-grade deliverables consistently and efficiently. We have done a significant amount of testing to determine the best way to collect and process data. From initialization methods to flight line overlap and pulse density, we have a specific workflow that is followed for various types of projects.”
