Baton Rouge - No Rest for the Crew

Huey P. Long Bridge
Following our East Coast Road Show, the Mobile LiDAR vehicle arrived "home" to Baton Rouge.  Although we managed to put over 3,000 miles on the vehicle in 3 weeks, our crew made their way back out into the field for collection of the Huey P. Long Bridge over the Mississippi River.
The bridge carries 4 lanes of US 190 (Airline Highway) and 1 line of the Kansas City Southern rail.  Our Mobile LiDAR crew made two passes in each direction and various approaches to capture the underlying support structures, levee, railway and roadways.
LA DOTD Offices and I-110
After the collection of Huey P. Long Bridge, our crew collected the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development office along I-110.  They made several passes of the office building and surrounding approaches to generate dense coverage.  After processing the trajectory, I created a Google Map of the drive.  If you click on the location point, you can watch a YouTube video of the collection.

What is Mobile LiDAR?

Mobile LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) systems are comprised of vehicle-mounted lasers, cameras and GPS/INS navigation systems to capture highly-detailed and accurate three-dimensional (3D) topographic information for surveying and engineering applications. Michael Baker International became an early adopter of Mobile LiDAR technology by acquiring our first system in 2009, with further expansions in 2014 and 2015 that increased our fleet to four (4) Optech Lynx SG1 Mobile LiDAR systems. Over that period our systems have completed more than 300 projects throughout 29 different U.S. States (and multiple countries), and encompassing hundreds of thousands of miles. Our project portfolio includes applications in roadway design, 3D modeling, railroad corridors, signaled intersections, utility infrastructure, asset management, pavement condition assessment and airport infrastructure.
