Thermal Infrared Remote Sensing

Infrared remote sensing generates imagery by detecting radiation emitted from the Earth’s surface, opposed to reflected energy (color infrared). Energy particles in matter emit electromagnetic radiation, of minute degrees, which are perceivable by thermal infrared sensors. Since different objects (buildings, vegetation, water, moist soil, road surfaces, etc.) all are comprised of different materials, they allLearn More

Mobile Mapping

Mobile Mapping is the technology of installing a mapping system on a vehicle (car, boat, ATV) to map densely built up urban areas. The mapping system employs an imaging system, GPS and IMU to orient the imagery to known coordinates. The system covers the target area with 3D laser points which are converted to accurateLearn More

Terrestrial LiDAR

A recent evolution in mapping is terrestrial LiDAR, which uses land-based sensors to obtain extremely precise 3D, high-resolution imagery. Unlike aerial imagery acquisition or LiDAR, terrestrial LiDAR is acquired using LiDAR sensors mounted on tripods in the mapping area. The LiDAR sensors use the same process as airborne LiDAR: a sensor emits pulses of lightLearn More
