With data collected via aerial and/or vehicle mapping, we can create orthomosaic maps; digital elevation, surface and terrain models; and 3D Point Cloud.


Orthomosaic Map

Many photos are combined together to create this type of detailed, accurate, true-to-scale, orthorectified area map. This aerial photography gives a true surface depiction of distance since topographic relief, lens distortion and camera tilt have all been adjusted.

Digitial Elevation Model

Digital elevation model (DEM) represents surface relief through measurement between points of elevation. Images are captured through photogrammetry and LiDAR and AeroPoints Ground Control Points (GCP’s) are used to filter out man-made and natural non-ground points that aren’t depicted in this bare-earth type of elevation model.

Recently added to the HTS Mapping Rental Pool: Phoenix LiDAR MiniRanger Unit with its impressive recommended AGL of up to 75m, filling a major AGL gap in the lightweight UAV LiDAR market now with the Sony A6000 Lite 24MP camera


Flyability Elios

HTS Mapping announce the Flyability Elios is now available for rent; the drone (sUAS) that inspects previously inaccessible places making your workplace safer & more efficient.

sUAS Level I Thermographer

HTS Mapping announces the Certification of Russell White:
– FAA 107 Certified
– sUAS Level I Thermographer


Digital Surface Model

Similar to a DEM, LiDAR is used to create a Digital surface model (DSM); however, a DSM includes man-made and natural features while a DEM does not.

Digital Terrain Model

Digital terrain models (DTM) are created through photogrammetry and shows specific terrain features very clearly.

3D Point Cloud

Produced by 3D scanners, a 3D point cloud provides high-resolution data, measuring a large series of data points in a given space.
