Where We're Going

We currently maintain the page on our blog showing Where We Have Been - locations we have performed collections.  However, within our company, we also track where our system is going.

Baker's Mobile LiDAR unit will be once again mobilizing to the NE on July 8th for scheduled collections on or about July 10th and 11th in New York and Connecticut.  Following the collections, the Mobile LiDAR team will have availability to perform collections or demonstrations along the route home.

Should you have questions or would like to discuss an opportunity to utilize the system, please use the Contact Us page to reach a member of our team.  The map below shows our approximate route.

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.
