LiDAR PROCESSING AND ANALYSIS
We offer LiDAR data capture, processing and analysis services to the natural resource and engineering industries. Through the use of drones, we have been able to significantly reduce the cost of traditional LiDAR data collection.
Our LiDAR services include Digital Surface Model (DSM, DEM/DTM) generation, where we can create slope, aspect, and elevation classes, contours, hillshades, and intensity images. We can also produce models and maps for hydrology purposes from these Digital Surface Models.
Our forestry team offers many forestry-specific LiDAR measurements, estimates, and analyses. Direct measurements include tree height, stand density, and crown closure. Estimates include volume, Diameter at Breast Height (DBH), Basal Area, and biomass. Using LiDAR, Ecora can also obtain forest parameters as direct measurements or estimates (derived through modeling) for Vegetation Resources Inventory (VRI) work.
