Airborne LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) involves mounting a laser scanner in a RPAS (Remote Piloted Aircraft System | DRONE that measures the height of discrete points in the landscape below the RPAS. This technology can capture large areas in a single day.
Well crafted project design by Skypxl enables the accuracy of the terrain data sets to be confirmed prior to their critical application on planning and design projects.
LiDAR can also penetrate dense canopy, enabling the capture bare earth terrain models (not visible using image based photogrammetry).
A number of other derived products can be generated about vegetation and assets (power lines, towers, buildings) which leads into the change monitoring services we also offer. Find out more
3D GIS and Visualisation
Skypxl has been modelling the built and natural environment in 3D . We have extensive expertise in the 3D modelling of major urban areas and integrating these models into governmental decision processes.
Skypxl currently provides numerous cities in Australia 3D urban models and supporting software for their cross-departmental use.
Applications include developmental planning processes like examining the visual impacts of development and shadow analysis. They also deliver complex decision support through simulations such as traffic flow and flood risks. Our models have even been used to identify vantage points and plan crowd management for firework spectaculars.
The simulation ability of our system brings the fourth dimension, time, into play changing geo spatial data from a descriptive tool into an analytic tool. The system, SKYLIVE allows decision makers to rapidly assess a wide range of scenarios, options, and responses to make fully informed and effective decisions.
SKYLIVE was developed by Skypxl to give our clients access to powerful features they needed, but were not being supplied on the market. We continue to extend SKYLIVE 's functionality in consultation with our clients to create a single platform that best serves their 3D visualisation and simulation needs. Find out more
