Ultra-advanced sensors coupled with cameras and navigation devices collect data of superb quality. In the next step, LiDAR software accesses the data and images obtained after data processing done by the software. It is a highly futuristic surveying technology that hits the target with pulsed laser light and measures the reflected pulses with an advanced sensor to know the distance. The processed distance and wavelengths are assessed to create digital 3-D depictions of the selected target. LiDAR is also popularly and conveniently known as laser scanning or 3-D scanning, with applications characterized as terrestrial, airborne, and mobile. Ultraviolet, visible, or near-infrared lights are used in LiDAR technology. It can be used to target nearly all materials including non-metallic objects. Even rocks, rain, chemical compounds, aerosols, clouds and single molecules too can be targeted using LiDAR.What Constitutes LiDAR?
Leica Pegasus Two - An advanced instrument that used 2 laser scanners along with GNSS receivers, an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and a Distance Measurement Instrument (DMI) on a vehicle to acquire accurate and precise data.
Mobile LiDAR- It is an innovative, time-saving and cost-effective mapping solution that constitutes the most advanced LiDAR sensors, cameras and navigation devices to collect quality data quickly and accurately.
Data Acquisition & Processing- The data collected by LiDAR is unswervingly processed to produce elaborated Digital Surface and Terrain Models in diverse formats including LAS, ASCII, ESRI and CAD. There are many other big-small steps carried out during a survey performed by LiDAR technology, i.e., Quality Checks, DEM/DTE Generation, Data Extraction, Site Planning etc. A LiDAR done by expert hands can take any dream project to the horizon of perfection while saving a big amount of time and money.
