High Definition Scanning and LiDAR
Since its inception, SMC’s underlying belief has been “that the key to providing clients with cost-effective project solutions is using the right instrumentation and applying decades of experience to the task at hand”. With the advent of airborne and mobile LiDAR and High Definition Scanning systems, this basic belief is further enhanced. SMC’s staff has embraced and implemented the use of mobile LiDAR and high definition scanning to quickly provide cost-effective survey grade data accuracy for a variety of projects. These technologically advanced systems are ideally suited for today’s engineering design requirements. A value-added benefit is that there is essentially no “missed data” requiring return visits to project sites. A wealth of detailed data for structures, roads, signage and other assets and infrastructure are all captured and can be mapped at a later stage quickly and cost-effectively as the project progresses and the need for enhanced data identified.
In addition to SMC’s experience with airborne LiDAR, SMC has utilized mobile LiDAR for several highway and roadway projects, including the I-93 Fast 14 project in Massachusetts.
