Lidar (also called LIDAR, LiDAR, and LADAR) is a surveying method that measures distance to a target by illuminating the target with pulsed laser light and measuring the reflected pulses with a sensor. Differences in laser return times and wavelengths can then be used to make digital 3-D representations of the target. The name lidar, now used as an acronym of light detection and ranging (sometimes light imaging, detection, and ranging), was originally a portmanteau of light and radar. Lidar sometimes is called 3D laser scanning, a special combination of a 3D scanning and laser scanning. It has terrestrial, airborne, and mobile applications.

Lidar is commonly used to make high-resolution maps, with applications in natural disaster recovery, agriculture, geodesy, geomatics, archaeology, geography, geology, geomorphology, seismology, and forestry. Source wikipedia

LiDAR APPLICATIONS

Utility Infrastructure

Detect ground wires, guy-wires, and more, even when equipment is obstructed by vegetation.

Collect reliable position data on small targets with dense laser measuring configurations.

Monitor vegetation encroachment on equipment and survey damage after natural disasters.

Oil and Gas

Conduct accurate aerial surveys in a fraction of the time, and without sending teams into dense vegetation.

Leverage high point-density to locate and prepare 3D models of pipelines and other equipment.

Discover erosion and other threats around supporting structures and access paths before problems develop.

Development Planning

Maximize efficiency by combining ground and aerial scans.

Enhance visual model accuracy by fusing RGB imagery with high density point data to map structures and monitor vegetation near structures.

Generate accurate elevation data with precision, survey-grade laser data.

Mining

Explore areas of interest from the air in less time, and without sending teams into dense vegetation.

Generate precise volumetric measurements in low or no light environments.

Leverage 360° laser field-of-view to measure elevations and obstacles in a planned mining area.
