Empower your decisions with land and building data acquisition, modeling and geospatial solutions like never before. With Theta UAV’s state-of-the-art acquisition capabilities and McMAHON’s data integration services, like BIM and GIS, you have a “one stop shop” for aerial and terrestrial data collection and 3D modeling services. Theta is a leader in the data acquisition field, combining that with McMAHON’s over 100 years of experience in the Engineering/Architecture field provides a high quality team.
Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. It displays exact positions of surface points, and it can be used to recover the motion pathways of designated reference points located on any object in a moving or fixed environment. Photogrammetry employs high-speed imaging and remote sensing in order to detect, measure and record complex 2-D and 3-D motion fields.
BIM is an acronym that stands for Building Information Modeling. It uses advanced software that creates a 3D virtual model of buildings. BIM utilizes acquisition building data and organizes into a structure database easy to query both in a "visual" and a "numerical" way. BIM uses 3D digital modeling of a building. This model, however, is way more than pure geometry and nice textures cast over it for visualization. A BIM model consists of virtual equivalents of the actual building parts and pieces used to build a building. These elements have all the characteristics - both physical and logical - of their real counterparts. These intelligent elements are the digital prototype of the physical building elements such as walls, columns, windows, doors, stairs etc. that allow us to simulate the building and understand its behavior in a computer environment way before the actual construction starts.
LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) is a surveying technology that measures distance by illuminating a target with a laser light. Theta offers both Aerial LiDAR and Terrestrial 3D Laser Scanning. This technology can assists in a wide variety of projects, from agricultural, archaeology, biology and conservation, geology and soil science, mining, surveying, and more.
Our client needed volumetric data of a quarry. We collected the data and analyzed it for them.
This is 3D laser scanning.
Our UAVs can be equipped to collect the data you need. Our client on this project utilized thermal imaging before making million dollar decisions.
Building Information Modeling took this project into a virtual workspace.
Theta UAV did a fantastic job providing us with Aerial LiDAR data which was crucial to our topographic survey we created for our biggest client.

We worked with Theta UAV and McMAHON Group on project that was projected to take five years. They accomplished it in three months. I would highly recommend their services.

Using Theta’s 3D laser scanning equipment helped us get very detailed data information on our Neenah, WI office location. This data helped us analyze how we are going to put an addition on our office facility, along with reworking the inside.
