UAV mapping has consolidated itself as a proven Geomatics platform of collecting geospatial data by using remote sensing or photogrammetric techniques. The focus of Altus Group, Geomatics’ UAV service is always to perform a quick high definition survey (HDS) offering great accuracy, excellent turnaround times and competitive costs per project.

Multiple Payloads

Thanks to the enhancement of UAV aircrafts in the past few years, Geomatics professionals can fly different types of payloads and collect a variety of geospatial information.

Altus provides the following types of UAV surveys:

  • RGB Sensor – Photogrammetry Based
  • LiDAR Sensor – Remote Sense Based

Output Data

Georeferenced nadir orthomosaic (Raster Images)
Very accurate orthomosaic compatible with all leading brands of remote sensing, CAD and GIS software.

3D Point Cloud
Very dense and accurate 3D point cloud compatible with survey, GIS, CAD and 3D scanning software.

Based on the orthomosaic and point cloud output files, Altus can efficiently provide a variety of deliverables, elaborated products and analysis.
