Mobile LiDAR

Quickly becoming the preferred method of data acquisition for infrastructure projects, mobile LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) mapping is capable of high speed, accurate surveying of large-scale projects. This surveying technique utilizes state-of-the-art laser sensors, coupled with advanced GPS-based positioning, and immersive cameras that collectively 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/or 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 the re-use of the LiDAR data by multiple engineering disciplines. The benefits of mobile LiDAR include:


    • High-Speed & Accurate Data Acquisition
    • Remote Operation Increases Safety
    • Reduces Disruptions on Rail Systems & Roadways
    • Reduces Costly Return Site Visits
    • Delivers Full 3D Immersive Data
    • 3D Design-Ready Deliverables
    • Adaptable to Most Infrastructure Projects
