Mobile LiDAR Interview with Aaron Morris

During the 2011 ESRI International User Conference, Baker's Aaron Morris took a few moments away from our booth to be interviewed by VerySpatial.  Aaron provides a background on Mobile LiDAR and highlights some of our recent projects.  The podcast is now available online or through iTunes.

Thank you to Jesse and the rest of the crew at VerySpatial for the opportunity for us to share Mobile LiDAR with their listeners.

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.
