Dewberry Collecting LiDAR Data of Western Everglades National Park using RIEGL VQ-880-G!

Editor’s Note: LiDAR Magazine recently featured a story on an environmental project to assist and benefit the Florida Everglades, which is being conducted by Dewberry with the RIEGL VQ-880-G. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) hand selected Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, to plan, acquire, and process topobathymetric LiDAR for up to 788 square miles of surface area in the western part of the Everglades National Park in Florida.

Dewberry is using a developed LiDAR system, utilizing the RIEGL VQ-880-G topo-bathymetric LiDAR sensor for data collection of the National Park. The VQ-880-G carries out laser range measurements for high resolution surveying.
