LiDAR has become the de facto data source for those in need of detailed and accurate terrain information. LiDAR sensors acquire the height of both the terrain and any above ground features such as trees and buildings, to an accuracy and resolution unparalleled by other airborne methods.

Bluesky have an extensive portfolio of LiDAR data available as part of our data catalogue, covering wide areas of the UK.  If your area is not available off the shelf, our survey team are able to capture new LIDAR data, offer a flexible solution. So that no matter what your end application or area of interest, we’ll be in a unique position to meet your requirements.


Alongside our own data catalogue, we are official resellers of LiDAR from a number of other sources, allowing us to provide you with a single point of supply for all your LiDAR requirements.
