EL-MAP High-performance Airborne LiDAR Systems


The EL-MAPTM Airborne LiDARs are a new series of compact, high-performance laserscanners designed for cost-effective airborne laser mapping with fixed-wing and helicopter aircraft.

EL-MAP lidars are currently available in two versions, the EL-MAP15 for operating altitudes of up to 1650 m above ground, and the EL-MAP30 for altitudes of up to 3250 m. Both versions feature

  • an industry-leading large scan angle of 80° (±40°) for efficient wide-area mapping at the full scan speed of up to 220 scanlines per second.
  • high effective measurement rates of more than 800.000 shots-on-the-ground per second for high-density mapping
  • waveform digitization for every shot with a market-leading 14 bits-per-sample radiometric resolution for low-noise ranging performance and high-accuracy surface object acquisition, unlimited number of returns per shot, return pulse intensity/surface reflectance, and pulse width/surface roughness information from every pulse
  • integrated removable data storage with standard high-capacity SSDs for easy data transport and media exchange during flight
  • compact size (405 x 216 x 243 mm) and the lowest power consumption (max. 125W) of their class
  • single-handed operation in pilot-only environments and autonomous operation in unmanned airborne vehicles
  • and last but not least, the EL-MAPs unrivaled friendly price tags, in addition their outstanding performance, making them the ideal choice for organizations entering the lidar mapping field, or intending to complement existing or replace outdated equipment.

UALBox Sensor Navigation and Data Acquisition Unit for UAV LiDARs

The UALBoxTM is a compact, fully integrated, and high-accuracy sensor navigation-, control- and data acquisition unit for short- to mid-range laserscanners and digital cameras deployed on mobile and UAV platforms.

It is designed to

  • accurately determine the trajectory and orientation of the sensors for direct georeferencing of the sensor data using a tactical-grade IMU and a survey-grade GNSS receiver
  • control the laserscanner and record the laserscanner raw data
  • control exposure of a digital camera and register the exact exposure moments
  • supply power to the sensors, including voltage conversion, overvoltage protection and low discharge protection for rechargable batteries

Geocode Software

GeocodeTM is a family of easy-to-use, stand-alone applications for converting raw LiDAR/laserscanner data together with a pre-processed trajectory to geocoded (georeferenced, projected) 3D point clouds, optimized for throughput and geometrical accuracy to rapidly get the maximum out of your data. Originally developed for airborne lidar data it is today also used to georeference terrestrial, mobile, and UAS lidar data.

Several flavors are available to support a variety of data sources (laserscanners):

for data of our new EL-MAP laserscanners, featuring waveform processing. Additionally provides access to waveform data in the easy-to-use "Geocoded Normalized Waveform" (GNW) format
for data of Velodyne laserscanners
for RXP data of Riegl's V-line® laserscanners (including VUX® and miniVUX®)
Special flavors for other laserscanners may be brewed upon request, if the data format is fully documented
