The “Hovermap,” as it is commonly known, is the latest in drone mapping technology on the market. It’s a mobile scanning unit that can be mounted to a drone to provide autonomous mapping in challenging areas. Hovermap offers a weight of 1.8g (4lbs.), multiple flight modes, and a rotating LiDAR with SLAM-based 3D mapping and collision avoidance. Hovermap also makes it easy to switch between drone flights and walking scans with the simple click of a button thanks to the Hovermap’s quick-release mechanism.
