Lidar Can of Worms

Continental Mapping deploys lidar, an active sensor using lasers, to quickly and safely collect 3D geospatial data. Fast and accurate, lidar yields a 3D point cloud of data, which we seamlessly integrate into geospatial data production workflows. In a 3D environment, we map, model, and measure the world around us. 

Our lidar sensors are mounted on aircraft, vehicles and tripods, allowing for rapid and non-invasive acquisition of geospatial data. Imagery is often collected simultaneously with lidar, providing a context and additional reference when analyzing the data.
