Working with FlyGuys
At FlyGuys, we customize your deliverables to provide you with the exact dataset you need while working with your resources. LiDAR systems vary greatly, and with their high density, substantial knowledge sets and resources are needed to process the data. Because not every project requires this level, we can optimize the system we use to get you the information you need without sacrificing precision or accuracy or going beyond your resources.
Our LiDAR Sensors
Our drones can scan between 400 and 700 acres per day, per team, and we can tackle any size project, whether it’s 1 acre or over one million acres. We use two levels of sensors to collect data depending on accuracy requirements and client budget restraints:
Offering relative accuracy of up to 10 millimeters, this lightweight laser scanner can take incredible detailed scans with up to a 200 kHz pulse repetition rate and a scan speed of up to 100,000 scans per second. This option is ideal when you need high precision data and is often used to monitor construction sites, model with extreme precision, perform archeology investigations, and for agriculture and forestry inventories.
When you need an affordable option that still provides a highly accurate point cloud, we offer scans using the Green Valley LiAir V70. This flexible scanner offers relative accuracy of 10 centimeters or less and is often used in topographic modeling, power line management, and forest inventory.
It’s important to note that while some companies may claim to capture data at better than two centimeters of accuracy, that can’t be guaranteed simply due to inherent error in GPS signals.
Our Nationwide Pilot Network
We have a nationwide network of licensed, insured pilots available to provide LiDAR services. Each member of our team has their FAA Part 107 Certification and with different experience levels from which to choose, we can pair you with the right pilot for your project’s requirements.
We offer a simple, straightforward process for our LiDAR services:
- We meet with you to discuss your project and expectations and create a tailored quote with our proposal;
- Coordinate the date and accept 25 percent deposit on the project;
- LiDAR collection takes place on the agreed upon date;
- The data is processed and refined;
- The data undergoes quality assurance by our experienced data team;
- The data is sent to you for approval;
- The remaining invoice is paid upon approval.
We offer a standard delivery timeline of two weeks following the completion of the flights, though we can expedite your data for an additional fee. Also, the timeline is dependent on the size of the project and any additional deliverables requested.
Discussing Your Project
When we sit down with you to discuss your project, to get the best results, it’s important we have accurate information. This includes understanding the scope of the project, including size, topography, and tree coverage, as well as any air space restrictions. Additionally, we will need to know what datum you would like the data in and exactly what you want us to deliver, and in what file type, choosing from LAS, LAZ, DWG, DXF, and SHP. We also offer the three major types of surface models:
- Digital Elevation Model
- Digital Terrain Model
- Digital Surface Model
FlyGuys maintains partnerships with LiDAR data processing and surveying firms. These partnerships help produce the most accurate data and models for our clients.
Pricing for Your LiDAR Project
Several factors affect the cost of a LiDAR project, including scope, location, point density, and deliverables. However, we offer two packages with a starting price point:
Package 1 offers 10 cm of relative accuracy or better. This option is ideal for quick turn-around land development and building modeling.
Package 2 offers 2.5 mm of relative accuracy or better. This option is more designed for those who need a more detailed deliverable with the highest precision output available on the market today.
