Lightweight and easy to use LiDAR scanning solutions that enable quick,
accurate 3D surveying, even penetrating vegetation.

Use Case

Objective: Map the remains of an iron-age settlement, located under centuries of vegetation on an uneven landscape. The site was excavated and partially restored in the 20th century, but a part of the settlement remains hidden due to terrain.

Results: An airborne survey was carried out using YellowScan. The ruins were clearly identified under dense shrub, allowing a greater overview of the site and the ability to map it accurately.

Archeology terrain mapping settlement

Key benefit of a UAV + YellowScan LiDAR system

  • Exploration of inaccessible areas (dense vegetation, rugged terrain)
  • Autonomy: easy-to-use even by non-surveying professionals: you don’t rely on third-party experts or pilots
  • Freedom of surveying when you want, where you want. Quick, light and easy mobilization: whole system can be carried in car trunk or airplane luggage
  • Rugged & Reliable: compatible with most difficult field conditions (extreme temperatures, humidity, vibrations, dust…)
