~Helping You See What Others Cannot~​​

HDMS & Standard GIS delivers turn-key 3D mapping solutions that allow clients to take back control of their time, reduce risk, and stay on budget. Our ability to rapidly collect accurate LiDAR data allows us to deliver results in a fraction of the time when compared to using traditional surveying methods alone. We understand that collecting accurate data is only half of the battle. That is why we also extract the information and features you need and deliver it in a format that integrates seamlessly with your current workflow.

  • Transportation & Transportation Planning

    • Asset Management/Asset Inventory 

    • 3D Master Planning 

    • Planimetric mapping  

  • Oil  & Gas

    • ​Asset Management

    • Distribution Design 

    • Exploration (when combined with geologic data) 

  • Water & Wastewater Engineering ​ 


  • Complete Asset Management 

    • Vehicle-mounted LiDAR and 360 cameras collect survey-grade* data while driving at normal roadway speeds, removing traditional surveyor safety risks and minimizing impact to traffic 


  • Planning for Operations

  • Biomass Calculation and other popular Forestry Metrics


  • Stockpile Inventory 

    • The volumetric calculations for the Stockpile Inventory require building a LiDAR-derived surface model, defining the stockpile boundary, and measuring the volume of material that lies between the historical base surface and the current ground surface.

​Light Detection and Ranging is used to detect and measure the distance of an object or surface from an optical source. LiDAR differs from photogrammetry in that photogrammetry uses passive light and LiDAR employs an active laser system. LiDAR yields an intensity with the XYZ data to provide a black and white-like image.

~Architecture and Geomatics~

LiDAR is the most suitable technology for mapping the ground through a forest's canopy.  The penetrating laser pulses are able to capture ground and sub-canopy locations that are difficult to see in other airborne imagery or in ground surveying circumstances.
