Add a new level of reality capture to your 3D point clouds

Add a new level of reality capture to your 3D point clouds.

Emesent brings you additional insights from its best-in-class point cloud scans with the introduction of the Hovermap colorization feature. The 3D point clouds from Hovermap can now be augmented with true color, providing additional context for visualization and analysis.

Colorization provides greater insights across a variety of applications, revealing previously hidden details in your critical infrastructure.

A Versatile and Modular Approach

Simply attach the latest rugged action camera (the GoPro Hero) to Hovermap with our custom quick-release mount. This modular approach extends the versatility and flexibility of Hovermap, allowing you to capture colorized scans as needed.

Combining camera and LiDAR data from a moving scanner is no easy task. Our team has developed a powerful software algorithm to achieve precise calibration and synchronization between the camera and LiDAR sensor, keeping it simple and easy to use while producing incredible results.

Press Record and Start Scanning

Now just hit record and start gathering colorized point clouds!

Fit a camera-equipped Hovermap to a drone to reach those impossible to reach areas, or use it as a handheld scanner. Use our advanced SLAM and flight autonomy on supported drones to push your colorization flights even further in GPS-denied environments.

Easy Processing


Scanning and data processing remains as easy as always. Hovermap and the camera are started with the push of a button, and after capture, the LiDAR and video data are processed via a simple workflow. For advanced users, a vast range of parameters are also made available to further adjust processing and output options.

Integrate With Your Existing Workflows

Colorized point clouds, along with image frames and image pose data, can be imported into your favorite third-party software. As always, our rich point cloud data also includes per-point attributes such as range, intensity, return number, and time – making filtering a breeze.

See it in color

No matter what environment you are scanning, Emesent’s Colorization for Hovermap allows you to seamlessly capture colorized point clouds with the click of a button.
