Use case


The Amazon represents over half of the planet’s rainforests. Understanding its dynamics, how it reacts and influences climate change is a top priority for researchers.


An airborne survey was carried out using YellowScan in French Guiana. The data was processed in conjunction with the world-class scientists of Carbomap. Together with YellowScan, a team was able to map both canopy and topography, thus assessing the canopy height of the zone surveyed. Despite a huge density of vegetation, a sufficient amount of ground echoes were received generating a rough digital terrain model.

Use case – Environmental research

Key benefit of a UAV + YellowScan LiDAR system

  • 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
