CUT COSTS AND CARRY MORE WITH THIS HIGH-PAYLOAD UAV MAPPING SOLUTION

Soar above your competitors with mdMapper3000DG. Our most advanced UAV mapping solution available, the md4-3000 UAV at the center of this package can fly longer, reach higher, and carry more.

WHY CHOOSE mdMAPPER3000DG?
Rise to virtually any geospatial challenge.

CAN CARRY UP TO 11 LBS
(5,000 g), allowing you to carry heavy payloads like LiDAR, professional mapping-grade cameras, and multiple payloads.

ELIMINATES YOUR NEED TO INSTALL GCPS 
while meeting the most precise data requirements.

ALLOWS YOU TO PERFORM CORRIDOR MAPPING
thanks to an on-board IMU that measures orientation angles. RTK, PPK, and conventional aerial surveying methods do not measure these angles so corridor mapping becomes a major operational and logistical challenge.

ALLOWS YOU TO SAFELY ACCESS DANGEROUS OR HARD-TO-REACH LOCATIONS 
From planning up through final inspection, drones provide a safer way to collect geospatial data and imagery when compared to conventional methods that might be dirty, dull or dangerous.

DRASTICALLY REDUCES TIME SPENT 
on post-processing and data collection, thanks to an impressively decreased side lap and many other elements.

FURTHER IMPROVES YOUR EFFICIENCY
with industry-leading flight times and resilience against harsh environmental conditions.

REDUCES OVERLAP AND SIDELAP
With other methods, 80 x 80 is a must. With DG, you can achieve 80 x 40 overlap and 60 x 40 sidelap. Translation: it slashes the time you spend on projects.

ALLOWS YOU TO MEASURE
the 6 parameters necessary for image georeferencing, whereas conventional surveying methods (RTK and PPK) rely on computing all or some of these values. DG reduces time, effort, human error and cost, while improving accuracy.

LETS YOU COMPLETE YOUR PROJECTS WITH LESS 
people, time and equipment.

CAN COVER UP TO 198 AC
(80 ha) in one flight.

CAN FLY UP TO 4,000 M
(2.5 mi), where legal.

ALLOWS YOU TO CONFIDENTLY BID ON INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS
With international projects, there are bound to be challenging unforeseen constraints that impact access. DG lets you rise above and protect your investment in the project.

LETS YOU CHECK YOUR WORK FOR QUALITY CONTROL PURPOSES,
which isn’t possible with RTK and conventional surveying methods.
