mdMapper1000 DG conquers large surveying or mapping projects in a fraction of the time and masters your geospatial data by putting direct georeferencing to work for you. mdMapper1000DG is a true game changer. With this aerial surveying solution, you’ll achieve the highest level of data accuracy currently possible, cover more ground in one flight, use less people and equipment on jobs – all without using ground control points. Significantly reduce your time spent on projects. Deliver unparalleled data quality. Become invaluable to your clients’ success.


You may have heard that RTK and PPK are the best aerial mapping technologies. That’s because they were – back in the 80s and 90s. Today, direct georeferencing is the most advanced technology available. But that doesn’t make it a luxury option. Direct georeferencing makes sense for pretty much any customer because it will pay for itself quickly and provide your business with dramatic cost savings over time. With DG, you won’t need to install any ground control points (unless you want to install 1 or 2 to check your work later for quality control). You’ll collect your images and post-process in a fraction of the time. Your projects will require less people and equipment. You’ll safely tackle mapping jobs in dangerous locations. Most important, you’ll deliver the best possible accuracy on projects where human safety and your reputation is on the line.

mdMapper1000 is a versatile package that can be used for a wide range of applications. Some of the most common uses are:

1 1 3 4 5 6

  • Corridor Mapping
  • Surveying
  • Construction
  • Infrastructure Inspection
  • Mining
  • LiDAR Applications


  • Eliminates your need to install GCPs while meeting the most precise data requirements.
  • Allows you to perform corridor mapping, thanks to an on-board IMU that measures orientation angles. RTK, PPK, and conventional aerial surveying methods do not measure these angles so corridor mapping becomes a major operational and logistical challenge.
  • Allows you to safely access dangerous or hard-to-reach locations.
  • Drastically reduces time spent on post-processing and data collection, thanks to an impressively decreased side lap and many other elements.
  • Further improves your efficiency with industry-leading flight times and resilience against harsh environmental conditions.
  • Reduces overlap and sidelap. With other methods, 80 x 80 is a must. With DG, you can achieve 80 x 40 overlap and 60 x 40 sidelap. Translation: it slashes the time you spend on projects.
  • Allows you to measure the 6 parameters necessary for image georeferencing, where conventional surveying methods, RTK, and PPK rely on computing all or some of these values. (Computing requires more info, people, work, time, and cost – and produces far less accurate results. Measure = better.)
  • Lets you complete your projects with less people, time and equipment.
  • Can cover up to 198 acres (80 hectares) in one flight.
  • Allows you to confidently bid on international projects. With international projects, there are bound to be challenging unforeseen constraints that impact access. DG lets you rise above and protect your investment in the project.
  • Lets you check your work for quality control purposes, which isn’t possible with RTK and conventional surveying methods.
