The difference between an average firm and a leading geospatial service firm is not just people; it’s also the technology at their disposal. Enter Woolpert’s use of lidar—light detecting and ranging—technology.
We’ve been providing unmatched lidar services to clients for more than a decade and continue to lead the industry with system and data processing advancements—even by developing the technology ourselves.
Woolpert uses lidar to create the following value-added products for our clients:
Woolpert’s approach to collecting aerial imagery includes lidar, which blends the feature- and terrain-mapping capabilities of photogrammetry with incredibly dense, foliage-penetrating point measurements at resolutions down to the inch.
Our top-of-the-line lidar scanning systems sample and model everything on the earth’s surface—trees, water bodies, buildings, above-ground infrastructure and, of course, the ground.
Today’s surveyors have a wide variety of high-tech tools at their disposal, and one of the most powerful technologies to emerge in the last 10 years is the mobile mapping system. Mobile mapping eliminates disruptions to the motoring public and removes surveyors from harm’s way.
Woolpert’s unique system combines Optech’s latest-generation lidar units with four digital cameras and an Applanix 420 Position and Orientation System (POS), mountable on a cargo van, ATV, boat or even rail car.
