Big projects in agriculture, forestry, mining and power stations have one thing in common. They need very detailed and accurate information about an area in order to make good decisions. Mistakes in this type of projects have a very high cost and can jeopardize their existence. In the Dominican Republic Forest Finest Consulting provides drone LIDAR services. With help of drone camera images our clients reduce costs and risks.
Antonio, our GIS expert and certified drone pilot, examines regularly a cocoa field in the Dominican Republic. Thanks to the LIDAR sensor it is possible to acquire accurate information about an area despite of the vegetation. This instrument measures the distance to an object by using a laser. We successfully have applied this tool in digital terrain models, plant counting, drainage maintenance and land use mapping.
Cost and time effective method
The gained information from the drone camera delivers very important data for addressing complications in an early stage such as plant quality in agricultural projects. This powerful tool has many applications in forestry, power stations, mining and topographic surveys. All in all, working with this device reduces up to 30% of time investment and around 70% of financial investment.
