Is LiDAR the next Gold? – Drone LiDAR

In this video, we take a look at aerial LiDAR and how it’s quickly becoming the new gold standard in drone mapping. LiDAR has come a long way since its inception in the 1980s. Now, it’s becoming a standard part of everyday surveys for all kinds of projects from environmental issues, to land disputes and even architectural preservation (metaverse).
