What is Flood Mapping?

Engineering, Survey & Mapping
question_answer0
Flooding, simply put, is an overflowing of water onto land that is normally dry. Its impacts can be severe enough to create a natural disaster that causes serious damage to property—and unfortunately in some cases—threatens lives. For communities that may be at risk to flooding and its devasting impacts, we…

What is LiDAR?

LiDAR
question_answer0
LiDAR is a sought-after remote sensing technology for detecting distant objects and measuring distance.  In this technology, the laser beam is emitted, and a sensor is used to collect scattered beams to capture 3D information of a scanned object. LiDAR works much like sonar and radar but uses a laser…
