Continental Mapping adds mobile lidar acquisition to its growing list of solutions.

Mobile lidar scanning is an evolution of lidar acquisition, filling the void created from aerial
lidar collection and terrestrial static scanning methods. Mobile lidar utilizes the ground level
perspective of terrestrial scanners with mobile capabilities used by aerial lidar. Mobile lidar
can better serve demanding transportation design and engineering projects, as well as provide
a solution to collecting lidar data when aerial methods aren’t possible or can't meet the
accuracy standards. It also offers faster acquisition and less personnel risk.

Mobile lidar technology combines high accuracy remote sensing techniques with engineering design survey accuracy in a safer, faster, and more flexible environment. The highly regarded VMX-250 system is equipped with dual, high frequency laser scanners, an inertial measurement unit and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) equipment, as well as multiple digital cameras that can be configured to meet the specifications of individual projects. Our team brings well over 30 years of pioneering and production mobile lidar mapping experience to the market. In addition, we bring a collective experience deploying hybridized solutions of mobile, terrestrial, and airborne lidar and imagery. This unparalleled experience positions us well to provide counsel to our clients as to data collection options, sensor choices, and approaches for addressing both budget and technical requirements.

The addition of mobile lidar acquisition continues our expansion of solutions to provide multi-sensor, multi-platform capability to our clients,” said President Dave Hart. “This capability, combined with our land survey, helicopter and fixed wing platform experience rounds out our offering of high accuracy, infrastructure mapping for our clients.” Tim Blak, General Manager of Tulloch Mapping Solutions added, “We are very pleased to have entered into this agreement with Continental Mapping, as it firmly aligns with our strategy to work with industry leaders to provide reliable, high accuracy solutions to clients with demanding needs.”
