Airborne lidar technology is widely accepted among oil and gas companies as an efficient tool for acquiring geo-referenced spatial data for various applications essential to route design, and maintenance.
New route typically last hundred of KM .The route selection will affect the cost of project. Airborne lidar technology is all-digital format of its data collection, processing, analysis, delivery, and storage steps. By integrating high accuracy point cloud data and imageries with GIS software workflow, it optimizes the route selection and data transfer, it realizes a seamless work flow from survey , designing, construction to transfer the asset to operation management. This maximizes the efficiency of the entire workflow, effectively avoiding duplication, saving investment. Furthermore, digital data acquired during an initial lidar survey can be archived and used to form the foundation of a permanently searchable and editable database, allowing subsequent time-based studies such as change detection.
