Luxsense geodata is a young SME whose objective is to use innovative techniques from earth observation in research projects and to render services for the acquisition of reliable geodata. Further, the development of high-level products for environmental studies, precision agriculture and engineering projects is one of the major goals of the company.

The use of UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or drones) allows for a rapid intervention and the acquisition of extremely high resolution geodata. These characteristics of UAVs – combined with a multitude of different sensors – make these systems very powerful in the case of natural disasters or precision agriculture, where satellite data lacks the spatial or temporal resolution.


Geodata acquisition

  • UAV operation for data acquisition
  • Data processing for RGB-, thermal and multi- and hyperspectral data

Product development

  • Development of customized data products
  • Precision agriculture / viticulture: disease and weed detection, biomass, and photosynthesis.
  • Forestry: Remote sensing-based inventories, health status and biomass development
  • Construction site monitoring : volume estimation, 3D reconstruction, BIM and pipe detection
  • Instant-As-Built: Handheld device for high accuracy and high-resolution data acquisition


  • Heavy lift UAVs: In many research projects, multiple camera systems need to be flown simultaneously and combined with sensors for side parameters.
  • LiDAR: A LiDAR scanner enables to collect 300pts/m² and allows to collect high precision digital elevation models, even below vegetation
  • Multi- and hyperspectral sensors and high-resolution RGB-cameras: the acquisition of the complete electromagnetic spectrum is required for the analysis of vegetation. The available sensor systems cover the spectral domain from 350 – 950nm.
  • A thermal camera captures long wave thermal infrared from 8-14µm and provides information about land surface temperature and emissivity.
  • Field spectrometer: the field spectrometer captures light in the spectral range from 350nm to 950nm. This data is used for research in vegetation studies and for cal/val of UAV data.
