MTI is proud to use the most effective Aerial mapping tools available. We proudly use and distribute Nextcore LiDAR technology on out M600.
Using our fleet of Phantom 4 RTKs for smaller projects and our M600 with Nextcore Aerial LiDAR we are able to acquire high resolution images, as well as, centimeter level positioning in our maps. This imagery is processed using advanced photogrammetry software to generate orthomosaic maps, digital elevation models, 3D Models and panoramic images of a site. This type of imagery is commonly used for site design, health and safety inductions, evacuation plans, tendering information and as-built photography.
Orthomosaic Maps are a powerful tool used in a series of industries, allowing users to gather an accurate representation of land calculating a given distance, area or volume. Orthomosaic Maps consist of a series of individual high resolution, low altitude images stitched together using embedded longitude & latitude coordinates to create one high resolution composite image. These images are adjusted accordingly to account for lens distortion and camera tilt. The accuracy is to 5 mm with aerial lidar!
3D Map Reconstruction:
Have you ever wanted to create a 3D image of a building or specific area? With drones, this is now easier than ever! In order to properly create a 3D Map using drones you will need an accurate Geographic Information System (GIS). This system is used to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. When creating 3D maps the drone will fly autonomously using preprogrammed waypoints set by the pilot. This is imperative as this will cover 80-90% overlap of a given area which would be extremely difficult for a pilot to perform manually.
Additionally. DJI has rethought its drone technology from the ground-up, revolutionizing its systems to achieve a new standard for drone accuracy – offering Phantom 4 RTK, Mavic Enterprise Advanced RTK models to include centimeter-accurate data while requiring fewer ground control points. When the next level of accuracy is needed for exact measurements we utilize our Nextcore LiDAR for millimeter accuracy for Aerial viwes and can use our terrestrial LiDAR with our Leica BLK Scanner.
