How We Use Drones and LiDAR 

Drones and LiDAR technology, more commonly known as laser scanners, collect data more accurately and efficiently by integrating the two technologies. Bolton & Menk’s professional surveyors and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified remote pilots use this latest technology to collect multiple data points for analysis. Separately, drones and LiDAR are incredible, but together, they create a powerhouse of data in one project area.
