Starting initially with a modest Riegl 280 lidar, in 2013 the firm upgraded to a state of the art unit that provides a 400khz, full wave form output and a 1,700 meter range. The lidar is always flown in conjunction with a 65mp photogrammetric camera so that pin sharp orthophotos are a guaranteed by product.
In addition, for quality control purposes, the firm has a MDL 12khz laser profile meter with a 700 meter range. Acquired in order to check both photogrammetric and lidar generated digital terrain models, it produces a very dense single line of points across a site, typically a few centimeters apart. By flying a few discrete lines, tangential to the original survey, it is possible to quickly and cheaply achieve a thorough and complete quality check in a way that no form of ground survey can ever hope to match.
