Picture of the Week

One project includes over 4.3 million pictures and
consumes more than 13 TB of disk space.
Michael Baker utilizes Orbit GT software to deliver Mobile LiDAR point cloud data and imagery to each of our clients. Our use of Orbit is highlighted in our As Seen on TV post from last September. Typically, one of the first steps in our processing workflow is to extract the spherical imagery and publish through our online portal.

We have numerous projects served up through our BEAST platform and encompasses tens of millions of pictures. These images provide a means for processing, data validation and visualization.

Orbit Publisher provides a framework for serving content to our clients without their requirement of having infrastructure to support Big Data.

The map image shows all of the collected routes in blue.  The images at right show 3 different panoramic images captured.

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.
