Drone mapping – UAV – RPAS

Engineering teams need reliable drone mapping and surveying tools. Also they need reliable surface data, the true ground level, to develop their designs. Due to time demands and shrinking budgets, engineering companies need effective, fast and highly accurate solutions.

Novadrone has developed a set of products and procedures with the aim of offering the best tool for aerial surveying and mapping professionals. The Nomad provides the best results in aerial survey, 3d mapping and drone photography of large areas. We also offer the Nomad bundled with Pix4D to create an end-to-end drone mapping solution, bringing together the market leading mapping software with the most efficient and robust fixed wing drone in its class.

See the Nomad In flight and also the 3d mapping results of a forestry research project using the Nomad.

We offer our aerial surveying drone Nomad® to international professionals and companies in sectors as diverse as:
  • Civil Engineering
  • Infrastructure
  • Construction
  • Transport & Telecommunications
  • Utilities & Renewable Energy
Drone mapping tools



Select the area you want to survey, plan and simulate your mapping mission and tasks.


Launch the Nomad®. It will take-off, capture and geo-tag high resolution images and, finally, land. All in fully autonomous mode.


Process acquired images with our software solutions and transform them to digital 2D orthomosaics, ultra dense 3D point clouds, 3D texturized models, Digital Elevation Models (DEM) and Digital Surface Models (DSM).


Deliver impressive results to your customers in almost any industry standard format: CAD, GIS, etc.

Industry standard orthorectified imagery and lidar quality point clouds.
