LiDAR drone is an alternative to airborne LiDAR

LiDAR drone technology is capable to map smaller sites, however, due to the benefits associated with these drones, in recent years, these are also being used in large survey areas. LiDAR drones have become preferred choice of industries such as construction, agriculture and archeology over airborne LiDAR as, LiDAR drone is safe and provide precise results.

Rising adoption of LiDAR drone in various industries is one of the major factors accelerating the LiDAR drone market growth.

The end user industries in LiDAR drone market are the corridor mapping, archeology, construction, environment, entertainment, precision agriculture, mining, and others. These industries are preferring LiDAR drone technology to reduce time consumption and to get accurate results. For instance, in construction industry, the LiDAR drone helps to provide accurate elevation data; in precision agriculture, the LiDAR drones calculate yields as well as monitor drones.
