A lidar sensor scans a laser beam across a distant scene, measuring distance at each point. Millions of such measurements are combined to form a 3D point cloud which can be manipulated by an analyst just like a 3D CAD model.
Lidar has diverse applications beyond 3D mapping as it exists today. The superior cost / benefit attributes of 3DEO’s technology will enable the company to unlock entirely new markets, for which 3D data was formerly cost prohibitive.
