At GeoCue Australia our focus is drone-based technology and how this can be used to most benefit our partners in our key target markets of Cadastral surveying, Mine Surveying, Power, Utilities and Forestry. Whilst GeoCue Group Inc based products and systems are our primary focus, we do and will support and partner with other, local and international, manufacturers of hardware and software. This brings great benefit for our partners to acquire multiple complimentary systems from the one supplier. This includes a growing list of partnerships, if you are aware of an item or software that you would like local support for please feel free to suggest this to us.
Drone LIDAR is becoming very popular in the drone precision mapping community. While photogrammetry is still the dominate way to do drone mapping due to its very low entry cost, it does not provide a solution where there is vegetated ground or for modelling overhead structures such as wires.
However, whilst LIDAR solves many issues the cost of entry for such LIDAR solutions is relatively high at approximately $50,000 AUD, plus drone, for the lowest cost system. An additional barrier to entry is the high cost and complexity of software tools necessary to enter this market. To ease the barriers to entry, consider using our drone LIDAR/imagery True View LIDAR rental (Subscription) systems.
GeoCue Australia seeks to provide you with the ultimate in partnering and assistance. This extends to assisting you with Rentals, new product training, software integration, trouble shooting and general support and service of your equipment. Backed by a team of highly trained engineers and technicians, both locally and USA based, we are well positioned to both advise and assist you in all aspects of your drone mapping operations.
Here you can find articles about our products and services, case studies that we have conducted, events that we either conduct or attend, announcements and updates, white papers and recorded webinars that explain and demonstrate various tasks and workflows that can be performed in our software.
