Heli Surveying

Mt Hutt Helicopters have worked on multiple aerial surveying projects. High resolution aerial photography and ground surveying services offer a complete spatial package for planners and land managers. We have partnered on survey projects for industries including agribusiness, forestry, mining, land development, telecommunications, and transportation.


LiDAR technology is one of the most accurate and efficient ways to capture of large areas topographic data. Airborne LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) involves mounting a laser scanner in our aircraft which measures the height of discrete points in the landscape below the aircraft. This technology can capture hundreds of square kilometres in a single day.

LiDAR can also penetrate dense canopy which is common in areas of New Zealand, enabling the capture bare earth terrain models.
