Leveraging 3D LiDAR Technology for Success

LiDAR News published an article today featuring an interview with three members of Burns & McDonnell: Anthony Gaskill, PE-Innovation & Development Manager, Coryell Kelsey-Senior Technology & Innovation Consultant, and David DeLind, PE-Section Manager. Burns & McDonnell is an engineering firm utilizing LiDAR technology for 3D modeling and design but had largely relied on outside vendors for data tied geospatially. With the addition of the RIEGL VUX-1UAV22 fitted to a Harris Aerial drone, they were able to bring this capability in house which was a huge benefit.

Learn more in the full article below on how Burns & McDonnell is using RIEGL technology on an array of projects such as a transmission right of way scan covering 100+ miles in a rural area for a midwestern utility company, and also on a multi-leg project that covered an area surrounding a major commercial airport.

RIEGL products have become the foundation of the Burns & McDonnell workflow. With the use of RiPARAMETER to prep their LiDAR systems capture parameters for acquisition and POSPac UAV and RiPROCESS to ensure that their data rests accurately within the real world, their remote sensing team is confident in the data they are acquiring.
