New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) have approved Scanifly’s shading tools as a verifiable method for solar system design and analysis.
Cambridge startup Scanifly isn’t just another drone data platform. With a background in solar technology and a clear view of the value proposition for drone data, founder John Novak and his team are combining technologies for the best in 3D modeling for the enterprise – and beyond.
Scanifly’s LiDAR-based 3D mapping drone, Flydar, is a ready-made mapping solution for solar panel installation. The data captured by LiDAR is incredibly detailed and can accurately measure the distances and angles of rooftops, while also mapping trees that need to be removed or trimmed to maximize sun exposure, all in a matter of minutes.
Drone-assisted 3D mapping just may be the next generation of solar assessment, and software developer Scanifly is looking to lead the industry into new, more accurately mapped territory.
