“In the U.S., mobile LiDAR mapping technology had not been used in tunnels on any known project more than five miles in length,” Falken said. Metrorail engaged Maser Consulting, P.A., an engineering firm specializing in geospatial services, to test the mobile technology on a five-mile section.
The demonstration was successful. Next, the engineering firm made the “big data” readily available to Metrorail engineers and the cellular companies using uGRIDD infrastructure data management service, which allows users to view, measure, extract and download information in a secure server environment...
