R.I.P Mobile LiDAR 1

With a heavy heart we say our final goodbyes to Mobile LiDAR 1.

She saw it all over the past decade: Logged 330,000+ miles;   1,000+ tanks of fuel; 20+ operators; 3 Transmissions; 2 custom wraps; and 2 generations of Mobile LiDAR systems.

From scorching desert heat, to frigid Canadian winters, tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, and volcanoes. Coast-to-coast, border-to-border, and everything along the way. 

Thank you for your service over the past decade. Now enjoy your time in that big parking lot at the farm upstate.
