Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) technology creates a very accurate digital representation of site conditions, structures, or any asset. A LIDAR scanner mounted on a tripod (terrestrial LIDAR) scans a 360-degree path with a laser beam while simultaneously taking pictures. From the millions of points collected and the pictures, both structured and unstructured 3D geo-referenced point clouds are created, which can then be utilized for planning, design, construction, remediation, monitoring, documentation, and asset management.
