Ian Berdie, Vice President of Innovation and Development discusses disaster response. With climate change affecting the frequency, types, and severity of disasters, how are utilities and the analytics that power their operations adjusting their responses to keep outages and outage times to a minimum? Listen and find out!

Changing Responses to Changing Disasters

"The data collected is at a resolution and accuracy that is far superior to what we have had available to us. Some of these areas have not been surveyed since the Civil War era, and the technology being used provides us insights on water depth for our nautical charts, especially in shallow areas that are impossible to chart by more traditional means. These surveys will provide an important baseline and offer long-lasting value to other stakeholders, who will leverage it for a variety of applications."

We drive change in the acquisition and production of high-resolution, high-accuracy datasets. We then transform these dense unstructured data into structured datasets optimized for analytics. Our R&D investment in next-gen solutions keeps us at the forefront of the market. pipelines. Our analytic solutions include: Structure Classification, Vegetation Characterization, Encroachment Analysis, Terrain Hazard Analysis, Corridor Change Detection, Emergency Response Data Capture, Greenfield Survey, Above-ground Pipeline Integrity Analysis, Asset Road Access, and Environmental Evaluations.

Lidar is Limitless

Many industries and disciplines are using lidar to solve a host of real-world challenges – keeping the lights on, mitigating risk and improving response to disaster, conservation, and land and water resource management. The list is endless.

Cutting Edge Technology

All sensors are not created equally. Moreover, sensor technology is in constant change. NV5 Geospatial is on the leading edge of technology implementation with our suite of eleven terrestrial and three topobathymetric lidar (used for mapping landforms under water) sensors. The Riegl 1560i represents the top-of-the-line fixed wing and the Riegl VUX-LR is in the same class for rotary-borne acquisition. Our suite of owned sensors includes multiples of both.


Definitive Answers

High-density, high-accuracy lidar point clouds provide an infinite number of opportunities for developing automated
answers to your greatest challenges. Our dedicated innovation team has developed considerable capabilities that we use every day to provide important answers. Airport
obstruction analysis (left) and pole loading calculations (right) are perfect examples of high-density lidar’s application for enabling accurate and efficient answers to challenging questions.

Understanding Quality

Not all lidar is created equal.  Accuracy and detail can vary greatly depending on acquisition method and operation methodology.  At NV5 Geospatial, we set the bar for data quality and assurance. We guide our clients to select the optimal resolution and accuracies based on their project needs.
