Mobile LIDAR:
Vehicle Mounted Laser Scanning

Mobile LiDAR systems acquire high-density point data and digital imagery while traveling at posted speeds. The rapid, remote data collection enables roadways, railroad corridors, airport movement areas, and other high-traffic areas to be safely and accurately surveyed with minimal inconvenient and expensive traffic control measures. Mobile LiDAR systems are capable of capturing large and complex project areas in much greater detail and with significantly less field time than traditional survey methods.

Precise and Rapid Scanning

The processed mobile LiDAR point cloud is a highly detailed and precise record of the site site conditions at the time of the survey. The high density of data points allows the end user to see a true 3D representation of the scanned area rather than just a node or symbol from a traditionally collected discrete point. This added visualization translates into a more complete, accurate, and timely final product. Mobile LiDAR data can also be seamlessly integrated with airborne LiDAR, static terrestrial LiDAR (HDS), conventional survey, and aerial stereo-compilation data.

Typical Mobile LIDAR deliverable can include:

  • Point Clouds
  • Planimetric / Topographic CAD Drawings
  • Digital Terrain Models (DTM) / Triangulated Irregular Network (TIN) Files
  • Cross Sections
  • Quantity Calculations
  • Bridge Clearances
  • GIS Shapefiles
  • 3D Spatial Models / BIM
  • Photorealistic Renderings
  • Fly-thru Animation
  • Pavement Condition Assessments
  • Resurfacing Projects
  • Corridor Improvements
  • Sign Inventories
  • Catenary Surveys
  • ADA Compliance Surveys
  • Bridge Clearances

“Bridging the gap between the physical and digital world, NavVis enables service providers and enterprises to capture and share the built environment as photorealistic digital twins.”
