NextCore is specifically designed to work seamlessly with the DJI M600 and provides high-quality LiDAR data in an easy to use affordable package.

LiDAR boasts many benefits over photogrammetry including excellent tree penetration to create high-quality terrain models under tree canopies, the ability to model large areas while not capturing enormous amounts of excess data, ability to model regardless of lighting conditions.

Once the mission is complete, your data is uploaded to NextCore's servers and combined with RINEX Data from your own survey base station or CORS Network. The NextCore servers then post-process the data through PPK to allow high accuracy georectification of the collected scan.

Once post-processed, you can download your data from the NextCore Cloud system from anywhere in the world anytime in a .laz format. The downloadable files come in decimated (one point per 100mm) and undecimated (usually over 3000 points per square meter) options depending on your specific requirement and data limitations.


Connect & Fly

The unit connects to the DJI M600 vibration isolator mounts (3 minutes) plug-in power and connects to the DJI API port (optional). You are now ready to fly, no calibration required.


Upload & Process

Once landed, remove USB, open NextCore Fusion on a laptop and set parameters for processing, Add GNSS data from your chosen base station or subscription service (RINEX). Click process.


Download & Deliver

Once processing is a complete (3 times flight time) your LAZ is ready for viewing and delivery.

This is now a FREE service. All customers will be given 200hrs of processing per year at no cost!

This should more than meet the average needs of an operator. Should a customer exceed this usage, fees will apply.
