3D Innovation for the Sustainability and Reliability of Infrastructure

LiDAR News published an article today featuring an interview with Surveying And Mapping LLC (SAM), a large geospatial and inspection firm utilizing RIEGL LiDAR with offices all across North America. As they approach their 30th anniversary next year, they recap the leading-edge technology that got them there. Starting in 2016, they invested in their first RIEGL airborne scanner and have since become quite the RIEGL shop with 12 RIEGL sensors: five VQ-1560 II dual scanner series, one VQ-780i, two VQ-480i, three VUX series, and one VMX-2HA Mobile Mapping System.

Learn more in the below article on how SAM is using their repertoire of RIEGL LiDAR for projects such as mobile and airborne mapping of a large municipality and airborne mapping for a 2000′, 550-mile Electric Transmission Corridor. As they envision the future advancements of digital twins and how it will impact decisions around support serving utilities, transportation, and infrastructure, they strive to continue acquiring the best spatial data possible for their clients.
