Our company

Routescene UAV Lidar vegetation management

Empowering survey professionals to make informed decisions

Our mission is to enable geospatial professionals to create powerful 3D spatial outputs to make well judged decisions and plans, solve problems, save time, improve efficiencies and increase productivity.

Since 2005 we have applied our expertise in surveying, LiDAR, data processing and analysis to design and develop robust, reliable 3D mapping solutions.

We are constantly curious about emerging technologies and were an early adopter of LiDAR in 2009. With the commercialization of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in 2013 we identified a gap in the market for a lightweight LiDAR drone-based solution.

We realized this could transform the surveying market. By listening to our customers, spanning commercial, government and research organizations, and applying our tenacity we achieve continuous improvement and innovation.

What we value

We focus on the detail… workflow and achieving high quality, verifiable results are critical to us.


Our carefully thought through and repeatable workflow improves efficiencies. It enables the capture, processing, analysis and visualization of point cloud data to be undertaken in a systematic, streamlined way.


Routescene has a strong ethos of quality assurance and quality control which is embedded across our system and products. You can be confident in the accuracy of your surveys, the quality and cleanliness of your data and that you have the best possible outputs to make sound business decisions. Rely on Routescene for credible, quality results every time.


Sharing our knowledge and expertise to empower our customers to excel. Comprehensive training and responsive customer support means you achieve a quicker return on your investment.

At Routescene we’re always looking beyond the point…

I can say that Routescene have been very supportive in getting us started with our equipment and ensuring we got off the ground quickly. I think it was only a couple of test and learning flights before we started collecting the UAV LiDAR data we required, so a very short setup and training time was required.”
