Customer Quotes

"The AL3-32 is Amazing! We've used photogrammetry but it falls short on any project with vegetation and unfortunately here in Columbia we have LOTS of vegetation! The Phoenix AL3 LiDAR system fills this gap and can easily penetrate vegetation allowing us to create accurate DTM's for our customers."

"I recently purchased the DJI S1000+ and AL3-32 Lidar system from Phoenix Aerial. Living in Fort McMurray Canada, it was a big decision to make. What I found was a group of highly intelligent and super friendly people! I spent a few days training in LA and had a great time. The support since then has been unmatched by any other company I have dealt with thus far. I would highly recommend this company if you are thinking of purchasing this type of system."

"The Phoenix AL3-32 system is ideal because it quickly transforms from an aerial LiDAR mapping system to a ground vehicle based mapping system.  We're thrilled with the system because it gives us an edge on the competition."

What is LiDAR

Light Detection And Ranging works by sending laser pulses into many, accurately defined directions in fast succession. Measuring the time it takes for each laser-pulse to be reflected and returned to the LiDAR-scanner allows reconstruction of all surfaces surrounding the scanner. Dynamic LiDAR mapping further requires fusing the returned pulse with the accurate world-position of the scanner at that time, so that returned points can also be recorded in a world coordinate system.
