Solution 1: Lidar Solution

Our Lidar mapping (Velodyne 32 Lidar sensor and DJI Matrice 600 Pro), collects point cloud with 5cm vertical accuracy, 3 cm horizontal accuracy. This meets the requirements of Land Survey industry. Point clouds can be used to build accurate DTM & DEM, contour line and 3D Model.

Solution 2: Drone Aerial mapping for reclamation area

The abandoned sites in oil & gas mining industry need to be reclaimed back to an environment that is equivalent to the original state or better. With UAV mapping, we can capture the information at different stage along the site operations to assist reclamation efforts in satisfy the regulatory compliance. The data captured will be uploaded to our cloud platform for further analysis and monitoring: Environmental Footprint Monitoring Platform (EFMP): https://footprintmonitoring.com

Solution 3: Thermal Solution

Using drone equipped with thermal cameral, we can monitor the working condition of specific facilities and report the safety status. It has advantage:
• 360-degree view
• Inspect high-altitude devices
• Barrier free from weather conditions such as illumination
• Real time and accurate data
