GoGeomatics Canada released an article that features Quantum Spatial, an NV5 Geospatial company, announcing their new project to conduct a comprehensive LiDAR and imagery survey of Vancouver Island using a RIEGL VQ-1560i sensor. The goal is to understand coastline changes through creating topographical LiDAR resources in order to inform the region’s development and maintenance work. This project was also supported by Emergency Management BC (EMBC) and the federal government through the National Disaster Mitigation Program (NDMP).
