Frequently Asked Questions: Updated

Yesterday started a week of updates, in more ways than one.  Currently, we have Optech in our office to finalize the upgrade and installation of our systems.  With this, I've taken the opportunity to revisit the Frequently Asked Questions part of the new Mobile LiDAR website - you might have also noticed the change in our domain name.

The questions and answers have been updated to reflect the change in our systems, their capabilities and slight variations between the units.  Additionally, I've embedded links into questions that have been addressed in the more than 100 postings that have been prepared over the past 5 years.

If you have a Mobile LiDAR related question, feel free to post a comment or use the Contact Us page to send me an email.

Cheers!
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.
