Information Integration: Self-Driving Cars to Surveying

Whether it is self-driving cars or surveying, maps on record don’t always reflect physical reality. Roads are modified, renamed, closed for construction, etc., and in some cases it becomes relevant if there are potholes or other hazards awaiting vehicles. In a survey project, these physical realities can play a major role if a surveyor is engaged to help chart a route for a truck trying to access a remote mining site over difficult-to-navigate terrain, or even in a case where surveying activities are taking place on urban streets or at a construction site with unforeseen hazards.

How Technical Is Too Technical?

I am often amazed when I hear in a first pitch how many points per second. A client really doesn’t care how many points per second any more than he cares how many points a traditional surveyor can shoot in an hour. The client is interested in an accurate deliverable and that is the power of static LiDAR for architecture and terrestrial mobile LiDAR scanning (TMLS) for transportation/civil. That’s all.
