Our staff of professionals use LiDAR on a daily basis and are well-versed in its proper use and applications. LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth. These light pulses—combined with other data recorded by the LiDAR system generate precise, three-dimensional information about the shape of an object or surface.

Our nationwide project experience has taught us that LiDAR has many applications ranging from land surfaces to structures, as-built surveys to internal working components of mining operations. Meridian has the capacity and capability to use this tool to provide the 3D data necessary for the detail your project needs.

Safety and efficiency of data collection are compelling reasons to use laser scanning. The ability to acquire a great deal of accurate measurements in a short time is tremendous, especially in areas that are not conducive to traditional methods of data collection.
