Emesent Hovermap Core

Designed for the needs of project-based survey teams, primarily working within the AEC industry, Hovermap Core offers a unique combination of hardware, software, and services. The Hovermap Core offering combines the high-performance capabilities of Emesent’s awardwinning Hovermap ST or ST-X systems with Emesent’s own data processing and visualization software, a mission planning and control app, and the potential to expand functionality as required.

Core delivers out-of-the-box survey-grade LiDAR capture, while allowing teams to add and extend capabilities and support as their needs change and grow over time. These include autonomous mapping via drone or robot (and related capabilities), point cloud colorization, automated Ground Control Points, and support for RTK GPS.

As a solution package, Hovermap Core includes:

  • The option of either a Hovermap ST or ST-X
  • Data processing and visualization software – Emesent Aura (v1.2.2)
  • Mission planning and control app – Emesent Commander (v1.0)
  • Emesent’s standard product warranty
  • 1-year access to the Emesent Academy, software updates via the Customer Portal, and email support.
