LiDAR Hawaii Mapping Services

Contact LiDAR Hawaii today for state-of-the-art 3D high resolution LiDAR mapping services for your civil engineering or land surveying project. Our cutting-edge 2-in-1 Bathymetric LiDAR system maps underwater features and seafloor terrain. Mounting our new system on a gas-powered LiDAR drone allows us to do Bathymetric LiDAR without the high cost of traditional SHOALS. This makes our LiDAR bathymetry mapping services cost-effective for a wide range of applications from environmental conservation to shoreline erosion control to natural disaster damage assessment to coral reef mapping. 

Our new Bathymetric LiDAR system collects up to 180 points per square meter at a maximum depth of 23.1 meters. Our system also performs aerial terrestrial LiDAR mapping. This 2-in-1 LiDAR system allows us to map terrain along adjoining shorelines or coastlines and also map underwater features and ocean floor terrain.
