We specialize in high-resolution drone maps and aerial imagery. We offer imagery at any resolution required for the project. In addition to RGB cameras, we can equip our drones with multispectral & thermal cameras depending on the needs of the project. We always use ground-truth and georeference our maps to be sure they fit your project.
Drone LiDAR Survey
LIght Detection And Ranging - first in Iceland
Svarmi is the first company in Iceland to offer drone-based LiDAR survey. LiDAR works by scanning the ground with beams of light, providing fast & accurate elevation models. One main advantage of LiDAR is that it can provide better terrain models (DTMs), or models of the ground surface below the vegetation cover than can be created with photogrammetry. For example, LiDAR can be used to find the height of the vegetation above ground, the amount of leaves on the vegetation, and the various levels of vegetation (e.g. trees vs. bushes vs. grass). Finally, LiDAR is ideal for inspection because it can be used to map vertical structures such as power lines and walls quickly and accurately.
Drone-Based Thermal Inspection & Mapping
Elevation Models & Contour Lines
High resolution and accurate
Drones are an ideal tool for creating eevation models and contour lines when accuracy matters. Because we can survey an area quickly and in a cost-effective manner, elevation models can be created regularly in order to evaluated differences year-to-year or season-to-season. We use photogrammetry to create high-quality terrain models which are always georeferenced to fit the project.
Image Analysis & Classification
Drone remote sensing for research & information purposes
At Svarmi, we believe that information is more valuable than data. That’s why we offer services with machine learning algorithms to automatically classify images and extract information from large datasets, thus reducing time and cost in a project. Additionally, we can combine aerial, thermal, multi-spectral, and many more types of imagery for more robust classification. Our team of remote sensing specialists are also experts at combining drone images and satellite data to scale-up projects. Therefore, this type of analysis is useful with large data sets, such as for inspection, vegetation classification, or geologic mapping.
Data Hosting & Visualization
View, Collaborate, Interact securely from your browser
Customized and Collaborative Viewing
We provide datasets in many easy-to-use formats. Additionally, we offer an online 2-D and 3-D viewer where many users in the same project can access to the images we provide. Accessing the data viewer in a web browser on any device is easy, secure and password-protected.
Measure from your browser
With the data viewer, users can directly make measurements in the browser (e.g. volume, height, profile, area). Plus, measurements can be exported as CSV or LAS formats. Lastly, our data specialists are always available for assistance with data products.
