An Overview of LiDAR Survey & Wind Measurement Technology

An Overview of LiDAR Survey & Wind Measurement Technology

Generally, LiDAR Survey & Wind Measurement Services are used to collect information about an area or to measure and map physical features, or they are used to create topographic maps and digital terrain models. Lidar Solutions use visible or infrared light pulses from pulsed lasers to illuminate ground, sea, or air targets.

 The information collected can identify a geographical area’s height and volume, whether above or below ground level, elevation changes and other elements that define its shape.

Examples of LiDAR Survey & Wind Measurement services

1. Geophysical Survey Data

It is where LiDAR systems scan the ground to monitor topography, identify and map underground pipes and cables, collect site survey data for construction projects, and map mining and petroleum exploration areas.

2. Seismic Survey Data

LiDAR systems reduce the time required to locate earthquake-induced damage within buildings or structural equipment. The survey data is combined with seismic data collected remotely by geophones.

3. Topographic Map Analyses

Lidar surveys provide detailed information about terrain features, allowing companies to model design and manage building sites more accurately and safely.

4. Pavement and Bridge Surveys

This type of survey can measure the surface of concrete structures, including roads, bridges, parking lots, and buildings. It can help improve structural integrity, manage maintenance costs, and decide whether the structure is strong enough to support anticipated traffic loads.

5. Subsurface Topography Analyses

An example is determining if a landslide has occurred or not. The topography data from a LiDAR Survey & Wind Measurement Services procedure will show ground slope, depth below ground level, and other characteristics indicating whether a landslide occurred.

LiDAR Survey & Wind Measurement Services are important to our environment. They can be used to survey details of the surface of rocks and minerals, soil composition, vegetation types, and wetland conditions. Lidar solutions help analyze for damage and improve our ability to find underground pipes, cables, structural reinforcing materials, and other infrastructure.
