Forest Survey

We provide comprehensive forest survey service by integrating UAV and LiDAR technologies.


About Service


We can respond to the variousneeds of forest surveying.

We can provide forest survey services with our laser equipped UAV. Surveying with the laser enables measurement and identification of forestry areas that are difficult to measure with aerial photogrammetry. This also makes it possible to respond to the various needs of forest surveying, before construction or for infrastructure development. In addition, there is a significant reduction in time using this direct measurement as there will be no need to consider ground control requirements.

Service Features

  • Two kinds of laser

    Two kinds of laser

    Depending on the area of interest, budget and accuracy required, Terra Drone operates two kinds of laser, a Velodyne or Riegl laser scanner. Each platform has unique capabilities suited that can suit the needs of the contract criteria.

  • identify and measure the ground level under vegetation

    Possible to identify and measure

    Although some areas may have overgrown vegetation, which would cause issues in accuracy in photographic measurement for conventional methods of surveying, using our technology it is still possible to identify and measure the ground level under vegetation.

  • data with high density and resolution

    Data with high density and resolution

    Using Terra Drone technology, clients can rapidly collect data by directly measuring on the spot without having to install ground control. By using UAVs that fly at a relatively low altitude, clients can get data with high density and resolution.

SETP2 Plan

Estimate, Preliminary planning

We will propose an optimal survey plan based on the customer's needs, taking into account the schedule dates, location, surveying accuracy, fee, the flight path of drones and other necessary considerations.

SETP3 Flight

Measurement flight

Our drone pilot goes to site and conducts the necessary data capture. Depending on the situation of the site, we will revise the flight route, altitude, speed and make on site adjustments to conduct surveying with high accuracy.

SETP4 Data

Data processing, Delivery

We process enormous amounts of images to create and deliver 3D model data that can be imported to directly to the customer’s CAD. We can easily measure soil volume, verify the topography before construction and manage the progress of construction and other necessary functions that will improve operation efficiency.
