Drone LiDAR

Global Raymac collects, processes and delivers aerial LiDAR for many use cases. Our sensors achieve accurate ground data through vegetation and will capture overhead lines such as power & distribution infrastructure.

LiDAR is the standard for precision data capture and Global Raymac has you covered.

Our heavy-lift UAV equipped with our compact LiDAR bundle delivers impressive data sets capturing LiDAR & photos simultaneously.


Drone LiDAR is perfect for projects from a few acres up to several square kilometers and for corridors up to 100km in length.  For larger projects we work with our partners in manned aviation.

Our data specs are:

  • Extreme surface coverage (Up to 250 pts/m2)

  • Vegetation Penetration (25pts/m2)

  • 5cm vertical accuracy

  • <5cm Orthomosaic Maps

  • Rapid data collection (14 m/s)

  • Reduced costs compared to manned system for small and medium size projects

Topo Surveys & Site Plans

The most common use for drone LiDAR is the reality capture to determine topography and create a site plan.


The site could be a parcel of land for development, a facility expansion, road improvement, or a mine site.


Global Raymac will leverage the drone LiDAR to create contours and determine the location of features required on the topographic survey plan.  Drone LiDAR complements traditional survey to create a more detailed and accurate site survey.

Energy & Utilities

Power-line engineers and operators are increasingly turning to drone LiDAR surveys to provide the reality capture required to repair, optimize and expand aging infrastructure to meet growing electrification demands.

Drone LiDAR provides the precise location of poles, connectors, ground, obstructions, vegetation etc.

LiDAR assists maintenance crews in planning their trimming programs, operators can identify hazards and non-compliance issues, and engineers can precisely design rebuilds and new construction.


Forestry & Agriculture

Drone LiDAR assists Agronomists in improving cropland drainage and overall yields. It also helps to when planning field improvements such as gravity-fed irrigation systems.

Forestry professionals use Drone LiDAR to count trees, determine species types and validate reforestation. LiDAR is also used to address climate change and quantify the carbon stored with a forest.  This can be done to a tree be tree level of detail.

From teepee rings in Western Canada to lost cities in the Amazon, drone LiDAR is used worldwide to assist in locating and mapping archeological sites. Conversely drone LiDAR can also be used to confirm that no archeological ruins exist, allowing for responsible development to proceed.

Hi-density drone LiDAR provides a mucher ligher level of detail when compared to tranditional low density LiDAR from manned aircraft.  The hi-density helps archeologists better understand small features and increases the confidence in decision making.
