Our Geomatics experts have extensive experience acquiring spatial data using a variety of technologies. We will be able to recommend the best solutions for you, depending on these main factors:
- Accuracy Requirements
- Level of Detail Needed
3D Laser Scanning
Laser Scanning is the most efficient, reliable, and accurate tool we have for capturing existing spatial information. The laser scanner produces a Point Cloud that provides an unparalleled level of detail.
The laser scanner also captures high resolution imagery to create a photo realistic rendering of features and objects.
The point cloud forms the best possible foundation for data extraction.
UAVs can be used very effectively to capture large swaths of data from the air.
The data can be used to create Digital Terrain Models and Orthophotos.
Data can be captured directly overhead or obliquely to enhance its usability.
Conventional survey equipment, including GNSS and Total Stations, are very effective for capturing the location of key points such as Survey Benchmarks, Control Targets, Elevation Grids Points or Discrete Features when the detail of a point cloud isn’t needed.
Locating Buried Facilities is a legal obligation in most jurisdictions before any ground disturbance can be done. Our experts use Electromagnetic Line Locators to locate buried facilities to meet this obligation.
