TERRAIN MAPPING AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT

LIDAR

LIDAR stands for Light Detection and Ranging. It is a technology that uses laser point measurements to build ground surface models. Raw data is processed to remove surface features and is generally combined with Aerial photography to provide an additional data set – increasing the value to each client.

LiDAR provides terrain information with an accuracy of 50mm to 200mm even under vegetation. The firm completed its first LiDAR survey in 2005 and has acquired extensive experience in the field over hundreds of projects. We own two custom-built leading-edge sensors and are able to deploy both on a single project when required.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS:

WGS

Where detailed terrain information, or information about terrain under vegetation, is required.

WGS

For studying the vertical components of above-ground features such as 3D building models, forest biomass calculations, snow depth mapping or power line encroachment analysis.
