Dick Henderson Animation

I uploaded an animation of our Dick Henderson Bridge collection to YouTube some time ago.  The short video shows the combination of the point cloud information with derived planimetrics of the underneath structure and piers.

I compiled the animation using Pointools with a little transition editing afterwards.  I've been using the software for some time now to generate these animations and to create the screen captures shown in this blog.

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.
