YellowScan designs and make ultra-compact lightweight UAV LiDAR systems for 3D mapping.

Surveyors Precision data mapping


Surveyors are looking for easy, quick and robust solutions to generate precision 3D mapping data.

Research airborne laser scanning tools


Researchers are experts in their fields, not aerial surveying engineers. They need easy to use UAV LiDAR scanning tools and technical support for geomapping.

Robust and easy solutions that generate precise 3D laser mapping data for GIS/CAD applications.

Professional grade drones have revolutionized aerial surveying. Now, a manned helicopter or a plane is no longer required to map the topography of an area.  To generate DEM (Digital Elevation Model) or DTM (Digital Terrain Model) models, you can use a drone also know as UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). As traditional sensors using aircraft or helicopter remain too heavy, too large and too expensive, we are committed to design and develop ultra-compact aerial mapping systems based on LiDAR. This technology is able to penetrate vegetation with high accuracy. Our UAV LiDAR solutions offer this benefit but fit to various UAV platforms. They can quickly generate accurate point cloud data, even in the field (compatible with GIS / CAD systems).




We were able to make sense of a chaotic terrain model with a non-intrusive, quick and cost effective method. »

For Carbomap, the use of UAV based LiDAR system like the YellowScan is a game changer in forest mapping as it offers very high dense and detailed point cloud data at reduced cost.

In a single 25 minutes flight we covered an area which normal surveyors will cover in four days.
This is impressive. Very impressive.
Andrej Veliks, A-GEO

From planning to post-processing, YellowScan was a valuable partner every step of the way on this challenging project. Our team executed more than 40 flights over 3 days and the YellowScan system never slowed us down or made us wait because of technical issues. In the field the equipment worked flawlessly and the data of the YellowScan system produced was very clean, detailed and accurate.
