The use of mobile LiDAR is quickly becoming the industry norm to solve challenging engineering and surveying problems. This technology is being deployed in to keep engineering and surveying professional out of harm’s way, as well as capturing a scene in its entirety to help solve complex problems. Mobile LiDAR can be deployed in transportation to create high accuracy models, provide base mapping for autonomous vehicle navigation, used to map transmission and distribution systems of electrical and communication networks, and provide geospatial intelligence for numerous industries. This seminary will give insight into the technology and examples on how these challenges are being met.
