LiDAR technology offers one of the most accurate, expedient and cost-effective ways to capture elevation information. Since it relies on an active laser pulse, it can be used day or night. LiDAR sensors can detect multiple returns for each pulse, which properly classified, can be used to distinguish vegetation, power lines, buildings, and the bare earth surface. LiDAR sensors can also record the strength of the returning pulse, and these values can be used to generate a LiDAR intensity image which provides additional visual information about the mapped area.
The Power of Integration
LiDAR can be used as a stand-alone solution, or powerfully complemented by other mapping technologies. AeroMetric seamlessly integrates LiDAR data with other data sets, including orthophotos, multispectral, hyperspectral and panchromatic imagery. We can combine LiDAR with GIS data and other survey information to generate complex geomorphic-structure mapping products, advanced 3D models/earthwork profiles, renderings of structures, and many additional high value mapping products.
As a pioneer in the use of airborne LiDAR sensors, AeroMetric has extensive experience in LiDAR surveys from fixed wing, rotary wing, and mobile mapping platforms. With nationwide coverage and five production locations we can take on any mapping project anywhere in the country.
AeroMetric is staffed by some of the most seasoned experts in the profession. Our team has successfully collected and processed LiDAR data in some of the most difficult and remote terrain in North America. Our LiDAR professionals have extensive experience with all facets of LiDAR including project planning and design, acquisition, survey, data processing, and multi-sensor integration.
