By the Numbers


Today we kick-off our new “By the Numbers” Blog series. As Surveyors, Geographers, Scientists, and geospatial professionals our daily life is consumed by numbers. This series will focus on some quick FAQ’s, stats, specs, and facts we thought you’d find interesting as well.
  • 4.5: Typical number of days an average project occupies a Mobile LiDAR equipment resource (mobilization, collection, and demobilization).
  • 60-100: Number of miles 1 LiDAR system can regularly capture per day under normal driving conditions for urban and rural areas.
  • 37,500: Average annual mileage travelled by each of our 4 LiDAR systems.
  • Since purchasing our first Mobile LiDAR system:
  • 200+: Number of completed projects;
  • 29: Number of U.S. States in which we’ve performed collections. We also have multiple Countries under our belt as well;
  • 25+: Departments of Transportation or Transportation Agencies for whom we’ve successfully completed projects;
  • 400+: Miles of railway captured from Hi-Rail mounted equipment throughout several projects;
  • Fostered tens of Millions in econmic impact;
  • Coached numerous agencies through their development of Mobile LiDAR Guidelines; and,
  • 13: The Baker’s Dozen: 13 Laws of Mobile LiDAR
Cheers!

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.
