LiDAR Surveys

LiDAR is a surveying method that measures the 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.

LiDAR, sometimes called 3D laser scanning, is an acronym of Light Detection And Ranging. LiDAR as a Survey comes into it’s own under dense vegetation where traditional photogrammetry fails to capture the complete topographic surface.
