LiDAR News recently published an article featuring an interview with Jared Martin, Vice President of Operations for Sanborn who is an airborne and mobile RIEGL customer. As a leader in the geospatial industry, Sanborn has utilized 3D laser scanning for a vast array of projects. Starting out with the RIEGL VQ-1560 II Airborne Laser Scanner, they were able to make considerable gains in acquisition efficiencies as well as improved data quality and performance for large scale wide-area mapping. In 2022 Sanborn added the RIEGL VMY-1 Mobile Mapping System to their Mobile Mapping inventory.

Learn how Sanborn is taking the VMY-1 “on the road” to provide quick collection of 3D modeling data in regards to suburban curb and sidewalk models combined with the location data to serve as a baseline for autonomous delivery systems. They are also utilizing this system for the collection of distribution line corridors in suburban and urban environments where vegetation overgrowth can pose issues.
