Overview

LiDAR and Aerial Imagery provide a versatile dataset that supports various projects in regards to municipal departments, infrastructure, roads and highway planning. Access to accurate data allows users to virtually explore areas of interest before committing physical and human resources to a site visit. Planners and engineers are able to examine project locations from the office, increasing efficiency and reducing costs.

Community Mapping

Sydney_7cm_1m_SplitCommunity mapping is a widely applicable program that is an integral part of growing communities. The right data can advance many aspects of the community such as planning and development, flood analysis, and green space management.

LiDAR and Aerial Imagery provide a versatile dataset that supports various departments, promoting sustainable communities.

Accurate data allows users to virtually explore areas of interest before committing physical and human resources to a site visit. Planners and engineers are able to examine project locations from the office, increasing efficiency and reducing costs.

Community maps allow city officials to easily share ideas, projects and issues with colleagues and community members through comprehensive map layers.

With further possibilities still unfolding, community maps are currently beneficial to many facets of the community, including:

• Project Planning
• Infrastructure
• Tourism
• Emergency Response
• Flood Analysis
• Impact Assessment
• Green Space Management
• Crime Analysis
• Land Parcel Administration
• Tax Assessments
• Land Surveying
• Vector Collection
• GIS

Highways and Roads

Aerial LiDAR and aerial imagery surveys provide a versatile dataset that supports the design, planning, construction, and maintenance of highways and roads. Aerial surveys collect data on large areas in less time than traditional ground surveys, allowing users to view and consider not only the corridor, but also surrounding areas and environmental impacts. Aerial surveys also reduce the amount of road closures and traffic interruptions, improving the safety of survey crews and drivers.

Aerial imagery in combination with accurate LiDAR data allows planners to easily visualize and relay plans to stakeholders in a comprehensive way. Users can virtually explore areas of interest before committing physical and human resources to a site visit. Planners and engineers are able to examine project locations from the office, increasing efficiency and reducing costs.

Coastal/Shoreline Mapping

Aerial surveys can offer an accurate interpretation of the current hydrological scheme.

Potential water level rise studies can be supported by means of highly accurate 3D vector(s), and topologically corrected contours are individually inspected. Leading Edge’s coastal mapping products surpass the industry standards, and illustrate hydrological and terrain states.

Conducting coastal mapping surveys prior to committing resources to plans can reveal important characteristics of the hydrological and terrain schemes, saving both time and money associated with your project.
