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.

Infrastructure Engineering: 

  • Electric Transmission and Distribution Engineering -  Asset Inventory/Management, Right-of-way Encroachment, Vegetation Management, Pole Attachments, etc.

  • Telecommunications Engineering ​- 5G small cell rollout, copper and fiber optic network design. Extraction of features: Utility Pole Features (POA, tension, sag), Over-head Clearances, EOP, BOC, Lane Striping, Water Meters, Manholes, Fire Hydrants, etc. (Deliverables can be in nearly any file format needed)  

  • Transportation & Transportation Planning - Asset Management/Inventory 3D Master Planning, Planimetric mapping.  

  • Oil  & Gas - ​Asset Management, Distribution Design, Exploration (when combined with geologic data), etc. 

  • Water & Wastewater Engineering

Municipalities:

  • 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. 

Forestry:

  • Planning for Operations
  • Biomass Calculation

Mining:

  • Volumetric Analysis - quickly and accurately calculate volumes for stockpile management, UAV LiDAR allows us to map beneath mine site conveyors. 
  • Exploration - Topographic mapping.

​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, which you can see below.
