LiDAR vs Photogrammetry with Skydio 3D Scan

Thursday, March 14, 2024 | 10:00AM PST | 1:00PM EST | 6:00PM BST

Join Ted Strazimiri, CEO of SkyDeploy, and Travis Sachs, COO of 3DS Technologies, along with Skydio for a sneak peek into the results from comparing drone-based photogrammetry to LiDAR. This presentation will reveal testing comparison results in terms of accuracy, application, cost, and operational complexity especially for mapping and surveying. The session is designed to provide attendees with a clear, data-driven understanding of LiDAR and photogrammetry in drone programs as well as debunking common myths.

Attend to learn:

  • In-depth insights into the accuracy comparisons between drone-based LiDAR and Photogrammetry.
  • Practical knowledge on the best applications for each technology, considering factors like cost and operational complexity.
  • A clear distinction between myths and realities in using these technologies for effective mapping and surveying.
