LiDAR Benefits & Uses

Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology can provide critical information to our clients so that they can lower their costs, maximize their working capital, increase their project efficiencies, and make more informed business decisions. We are able to accomplish this because our non-intrusive LiDAR systems significantly lower data acquisition timelines and can better access remote project areas. In addition, our clients receive a comprehensive data set for their projects. Services include, but are not limited to:

  • Asset Analysis
  • Class Location Studies
  • Construction & Site Planning
  • Floodplain Mapping
  • Forestry & Ac & Agricultural Mapping
  • High Accuracy Imagery
  • Compliance Standards
  • Routing & Mapping
    • Pipeline corridors
    • Transmission corridors
    • Transportation corridors
  • Surface Modeling (DTM’s & DEM’s)
  • Vegetation Management
  • Volumetric Calculations


We believe that our clients most benefit from LiDAR technology in three ways:

Time Savings – Rapid acquisition speed, flexible collection times, and easy access to locations.
More & Better Data – High-density data and diverse data sets.
Cost Savings – Total project planning & design, less man-hours, and less project liability.
