High accuracy LIDAR data, coupled with ortho-photography, is used to construct 3D engineering models of:
1) Electric power transmission facilities
2) City streets - for utility relocation maps
3) Facilities - for renovation
Oblique aerial photographs are often used to document facilities conditions, inventory, and environmental conditions (environmental licensing).
IGS deploys a variety of vehicles equipped with the appropriate navigation and remote sensing technologies, along with the appropriate operating characteristics, to get the job done.
1) Piloted Aircraft (fixed-wing and helicopters)
2) Unmanned Aircraft (fixed-wing/quadcopter drones)
3) All-terrain vehicles
4) Marine vehicles
Where we work.
Aerial LIDAR and FODAR data are fused with analysis results (augmented reality) to enhance visualization and mapping of vegetation clearance violations for electric power transmission facilities, to include in-the-field use of aerial ortho-photography geo-mosaic maps on various tablet computers - with or without internet access.
Municipal governments, law enforcement, and land developers are interested in obtaining advanced 3D point cloud models for engineering, advanced planning, security assessment and other applications which need superior visualization capabilities.
Traditional map products are produced using aerial LIDAR and color ortho-photography geo-mosaic maps for pipeline and/or electric power transmission route selection.
1) Traditional planimetric maps
2) Geo-mosaic ortho-photography maps
3) Relief maps
IGS works on the ground, underground, in the air, on the water, and under water to provide remote sensing data collection and processing for clients providing high information content to industries such as: US Military, federal/state/local government, energy (oil, gas, electric power [generation and transmission]), transportation (roadways, rail, airports/ports/harbors, and waterways), pipelines (oil, gas, water, CO2, sewer), land development/management, environmental management, and other.
IGS operates throughout North America, often in environments where others prefer not to work (or cannot work): swamps, deserts, tundra, mountains, water bodies, high-density/restricted urban environments, etc.
Color 3D rendered point cloud models (scenes) of various industrial sites are constructed using aerial ortho-photography fused with LIDAR / FODAR data. Each scene is geometrically and geographically correct.
Traditional scaled, geo-referenced, vertical photography (ortho-photographs) is often used for mapping purposes.
1) Traditional ortho-photography geo-mosaic maps
2) LIDAR intensity maps - for mapping paint stripes on airiports.
3) LIDAR intensity maps coupled with infrared aerial photography - for mapping underground pipelines within refineries.
Aerial ortho-photography and LIDAR signal intensity is used to map airports (including paint striping) while the resulting 3D point cloud models are used to detect, locate, and map violations of the protected air space.
LIDAR/FODAR 3D point cloud models are constructed for the identification, analysis, and mapping (reporting) of vegetation clearance violations for electric power transmission facilities.
Specialized infrared aerial photography is used to map underground pipelines (leak detection), water saturated rail roadbeds (mud-pumping) while side-scan sonar is used to detect and locate pipeline leak plumes under water.
