The Benefits of Simultaneous Multi Sensor LiDAR Scanning

In Uncategorized by Chris Ilgenfritz

In May, Jordan compared and contrasted LiDAR and Photogrammetry as competing service types. While some projects choose one modality over the other, we feel it is in many customers best interests to consider both LiDAR and aerial imagery – multi sensor LiDAR scanning. With the availability of lower cost aerial survey brought on by the use of UAVs, companies should also consider the potential value of choosing a provider that offers multi sensor deliverables. LiDAR is the reigning king of accuracy and is usually simpler to capture, process, and deliver. Aerial imagery provides details and visuals that cannot be obtained by …

LiDAR vs Photogrammetry

In Uncategorized by Jordan Rising1 Comment

LiDAR vs Photogrammetry -that is the question! This is a question we hear frequently, so let’s set the record straight and give an honest and fair comparison of these technologies. Both acquisition techniques have their strengths, but deciding which one is best for your application can be a daunting task. Note: For this article we will consider only UAV borne LiDAR vs Photogrammetry systems. This debate becomes significantly more complicated when manned aircraft systems are considered and that is beyond the scope of this discussion. If you were to read only this opening paragraph, allow us to leave you with …
