Custom UAV LIDAR mapping solutions for ENEDIS distribution network maintenance
DIELMO3D, in collaboration with YellowScan, E-Copter and Product-Air, runs a full analysis of strategic ENEDIS network locations for maintenance applications and vegetation management using LiDAR & UAV technologies.
The investment in power line maintenance for companies like ENEDIS is huge and involves a high level of responsability. Thanks to end-to-end solutions like the one we are presenting here, power utility companies can finally get the most out of their network and available information, gaining in flexibility, decision making and future planning.
The combination of a powerful technology (LiDAR), unmanned vehicles (Drone) and an expert technical team in LiDAR data processing and software development allows to generate 100% custom solutions to solve their needs.
DIELMO 3D (advanced LiDAR data analysis and algorithms development) in collaboration with YellowScan (LiDAR equipment), Product Air and E-Copter (design and survey) presented a “UAV LiDAR mapping solution for vegetation management”, allowing ENEDIS to manage efficiently the manteinance of the most sensible areas with total freedom and with the guarantee of obtaining exclusive and 100% custom high quality products that only real experts in the field can provide.
The stage test done in the region of “Vaucluses”, provided a full and high-detailed analysis of the network, ready to be used. Always following ENEDIS safety regulations and requirements, areas detected were automatically filtered and classified into levels of risk and imported into the official ENEDIS database:
- To simplify the daily work when needing to access their geo-databases and information remotely.
- To estimate with higher accuracy the real situation of the network in order to provide accurate answers to daily problems (maintenance, tree trimming, risks, etc.)
- To make information accessible and useful for any worker, teammate or decision maker.
With these 100% custom solutions, utilities own a high accuracy and added value product, allowing them to identify and manage future actions on their network without unexpected additional costs or delays.

Looking to the future: ONLINE management platforms
DIELMO3D, in collaboration with YellowScan, E-Copter and Product-Air, presents a pilot project of a GIS Web & LiDAR solution for ENEDIS. This plaform allows to access all the results obtained for their network (infrastructures, risk areas, codes, towers, areas) as well as the visualization and online access of LiDAR & GIS data in 2D and 3D (3D point cloud viewer, measurements, downloads, reports, etc.)
The results obtained in Power line management projects using LiDAR data & imagery from drones or helicopters, are key information for technical analysis and decision makers. However, the lack of good tools or platforms does not allow the right people to make the most out of this valuable information. The consequence is data remains underused or hosted in “silos”.Thanks to Dielmo Server Technology (LiDAR cloud technology) and our custom GeoPortals, all the information and results obtained and analyzed over the years can be accessible at one-click distance.
