Save Time & Money—Get Better Data

WET has been on the leading edge of UAV aerial surveying and mapping since 2015. WET recently expanded its capabilities to include UAV Lidar. WET’s fleet of drones has grown to include multiple fixed-wing and multi-rotor drones enabling WET to cater to all your aerial mapping needs. WET’s latest additions include Microdrones’ mdLidar1000 system, Vision Aerial’s RDRone with a FLIR Duo Pro R thermal camera, and the WingtraOne. The mdLidar1000 allows for collecting high-resolution 3D point clouds and accurate topography data on heavily vegetated sites. The RDRone with the FLIR Duo Pro R works great for thermal mapping and inspections. The WingtraOne captures imagery at 0.6 inches per pixel (GSD) while flying at an altitude of 400 feet and enables WET to map thousands of acres in a day with unprecedented levels of precision and accuracy.

WET’s UAVs capture aerial data to produce survey-grade orthomosaics and 3D point clouds. UAV’s have numerous applications for survey/engineering, GIS, agriculture, energy/mining, environmental monitoring, BIM/Construction, inspections, and more. Using professional software packages, WET creates 3D models (Lidar and Photogrammetry) down to 0.1-foot accuracy.
