LiDAR

Airborne LiDAR


LiDAR uses laser light to measure distance similar to RADAR, but uses light rather than radio waves. The result is the ability to produce accurate, detailed surface models quickly and often at reduced costs over conventional photogrammetric mapping.

To ensure Eagle Mapping’s tradition of high quality geospatial information, we have engineered a LiDAR system based on Riegl’s LMS-Q780 and LMS-Q1560 laser scanners and more recently, Riegl's advanced unit VQ-1560ii and new VQ-780ii. Our system provides state of the art high speed, medium-high altitude laser scanning with superior accuracy from Riegl’s online waveform analysis.

Applications:
• Wide Area / High Altitude Mapping

• Topography & Mining
• High Point Density Mapping
• Mapping of Complex Urban Environments
• Glacier & Snowfield Mapping
• City Modeling
• Mapping of Lakesides & River Banks
• Agriculture & Forestry
• Corridor Mapping

THE LMS-Q780

•Great versatility, accuracy and data quality

•Up to 10 pulses in the air handled simultaneously, offering industry leading digital signal processing

•Delivers perfectly straight parallel and high resolution scan lines - described as a Matrix Scan Pattern

•Very wide effective swatch width that delivers unrivaled operating efficiency

•Applicable from high altitude wide area mapping to low flight altitude corridor mapping

PROCESSING Lidar DATA

Eagle Mapping has many years of experience processing LiDAR data using the Terrasolid Suite. We are experts in fusing Photogrammetry, imagery and LiDAR creating more useful geospatial data for our clients. We can provide:
•Classified LiDAR points (DWG, LAS, ASCII, and other formats)
•“Bare-Earth” DEM (DWG, ArcASCII, SHP, and others formats)
•Intensity Imagery (Geo-referenced TIFF, JPG, and others)
•Ortho imagery or True color LiDAR points (Color imagery required for this process)
•Stereo Vector compilation from LiDAR data (No imagery required)
•Many other deliverables available tailored to your requirements

BENEFITS
•Fast turn around time
•Cost effective
•Gives 3D structural view of bare-earth below the canopy
•High precision data
