Mobile LiDAR: Projects at a Glance

My second article for LiDAR News is now available.  It may be accessed through this link.  

The image in the article is shown below.  It is an intersection of SR30A in Panama City, FL - collected May 2010.  You can clearly make out the extraction of pavement markings, sidewalks, utilities, pavement edges and other features.


Should you have a topic for discussion, please leave as a comment.

Thanks,
Stephen

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.
