3D Topography

The use of LiDAR in 3D topography paints the most accurate picture of ground characteristics available to date. Whether you need to predict water flow, identify populated or forested areas, see existing transportation infrastructure, measure slopes, or pinpoint peaks and valleys, topographical maps have applications for innumerable projects across an array of professions.

High Quality Maps Enable Accurate Project Planning

Tools such as high-resolution aerial maps and bare earth models can be easily accessed by everyone associated with a project, making resource and logistical planning faster and more accurate. Darling Geomatics provides 3D topography services for:

  • Engineering
  • Energy exploration
  • Conservation
  • Urban and residential planning
  • Manufacturing
  • Transportation
  • Public works
  • Recreation
  • Mining

Drones Changed 3D Topography

The adoption of drones, or UAVs, in 3D topography enabled the collection of massive amounts of data in a short amount of time. 3D topography allows us to obtain high resolution true color aerial photographs of an entire project area during a single flight.

With the introduction of drones, the time necessary for collecting data was reduced from weeks to days. In addition to being faster, drone surveying costs a fraction of manned aircraft surveys.

Our ground crews consist of FAA licensed UAV pilots who are registered surveyors with decades of experience. They complete surveys efficiently and quickly, staying safely earthbound and far from any hazards.

The data can be input and delivered in any CAD, non-CAD, 2D and/or 3D format your project requires. We are able to acquire latitude, longitude and elevation (x, y and z) data accurate to within +/- 6-7 cm (+/-2.5 in).
