Offering a choice of smart mobile LiDAR scanning units, and its own visualization software, Hovermap provides fast, detailed, and autonomous mapping for challenging, inaccessible environments. Hovermap can be mounted to a drone or robot or easily switched to handheld, backpack, vehicle, or pole-mounted scanning. Equally capable above ground or underground, indoors or out, Hovermap provides the versatility needed to capture real-time data anywhere.



Featuring the industry-leading capabilities of Hovermap ST at its core, ST-X captures more detailed data, faster, and from further away, with 3x the scanning range and double the number of laser sensors. Lighter, and uniquely versatile, Hovermap ST-X extends the safety and efficiency of long-distance autonomous LiDAR mapping even more. The ST-X is not just limited to outdoor scans; it excels in indoor or close-range scans, delivering sub-centimeter accuracy.
