Article: Lowering the Barrier to Entry Does Not Eliminate the Requirement for Professionals

We’re not a one-trick pony, and we’re not terrestrially-bound.  Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) represent the newest, low-cost acquisition platform – but low-cost doesn’t give license for lack of professional responsibility.   Continuing our contributions to your reading pleasure, check out another recent article authored by our own Eric Andelin that was published in the May edition of LiDAR News Magazine

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.
