Quickly becoming the preferred method of data acquisition for infrastructure projects, Mobile LiDAR Mapping is capable of high speed, accurate surveying for large scale projects. This surveying technique utilizes state-of-the-art laser sensors coupled with advanced GPS-based positioning and immersive cameras to produce corridor wide, full-color, LiDAR point cloud data. The LiDAR data is post-processed and delivered with a variety of derivative products, including, but not limited to: terrain models, topographic mapping, asset databases, 3D models, and clearance studies.
The Mobile LiDAR Mapping method is applicable and adaptable to most infrastructure projects. The true value of this approach to surveying is improved field safety, reduction of vehicular and rail traffic disruptions and overall cost savings due to schedule compression and re-use of the LiDAR data by multiple engineering disciplines.
