experience working with LiDAR has been varied and includes
surveying transmission line surveys for infringement surveys,
forestry and coastal mapping. We also provide ground
control, quality control and post processing services
for laser scanning work. We also own and operate a terrestrial
laser scanner, capable of scanning up to 50,000 points per
second and obtaining high accuracy measurements, please visit
laser scanning website.

can process the LiDAR for analysis to best suit your requirements.
For example, we can produce contour models, cross sections,
maps coloured by elevation, reflectance, aspect etc...We can
output the data in many formats for use in a variety of programs
including AutoCAD or for use in a GIS. We can also analyse
the data, for example by producing maps showing water flow
directions and flood maps or by calculating volumes. Data
can be exported as a file containing points for use in PLS
CADD for example or we can process the data to view it as
a 3D Digital Terrain Model. Digital Terrain
Models can be enhanced by overlaying photography for realistic
Survey Partnership have developed in-house software for processing
LiDAR data. For example, we have developed our own software
to remove foliage so that a 'bare earth model' can be created
and are able to transform LiDAR data into any coordinate system.
