Architecture & 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.

  • Topographic Information - Creation of Digital Terrain Models and Bare Earth Models 
  • Utilities - Transmission and Distribution Line Asset Inventory, ROW Management, and Mitigation of Outages 
  • Fiber Telecommunication Network Design - All Utility Pole Features, Over-head Clearances, EOP, BOC, Lane Striping, Water Meters, Manholes, Fire Hydrants, etc. (Deliverables can be in nearly any file format needed)  
  • Municipalities - Asset Management, Master Planning, 3D Smart Cities
  • Industrial Inspection - Roadways, Bridges, Turbines, and Runways 
  • Development Master Planning and Modeling

​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.
