Real-time aerial imagery from lightweight UAV 3D surveying solutions provides quick access to urban landscapes

Use Case – Civil Engineering, Road, Rail Construction


Often prime road and rail corridors require preliminary topographic studies to map the best route, assess impact on existing infrastructure and environment in order to plan for ground clearing and temporary access roads.


An airborne survey using YellowScan can generate very detailed 3D data that accurately depict the landscape and be incorporated into a CAD/GIS system for modeling and analysis. Due to the flexibility of the system, areas can be easily re-scanned as frequently as needed.

Civil engineering Use Case

Key benefit of a UAV + YellowScan LiDAR system

  • Optimized Operations: Get the data you need to manage your day-to-day raw material stock, cut & fill volumes and site arrangements
  • Survey rugged and under vegetation terrain
  • Security:  YellowScan systems allow for quick and complete acquisition of an entire project while eliminating the on-the-ground logistics and dangers
  • Rugged & Reliable: compatible with most difficult field conditions (extreme temperatures, humidity, vibrations, dust…)
