Electrical Utility Applications

LSI provides many different mapping and data collection services for the electrical utility industry, from preliminary route mapping and environmental evaluation to as-built transmission line facility georeferencing. The mapping for each of these project styles has unique requirements, analysis and deliverables and can be addressed by our in-house expertise to develop proprietary solutions. LSI partners with electrical engineering teams to provide one stop project services from data collection and analysis through to transmission line re-rating and construction.

Featured Project: Transmission Line Survey – Panama


Environmental Applications

For many years, LSI has performed LiDAR mapping services on industry specific projects involving aspects of environmental analysis. Recently several LSI projects have been commissioned for solely environmental purposes. These projects have extended beyond the traditional LiDAR topographic requirements of their respective industries to include a more focused data collection approach on environmental conditions and issues which may not be captured under normal LiDAR collection operations. LSI has addressed these projects in a two-fold approach by customizing both the data collection field procedures and LiDAR systems. These optimized field procedures coupled with the addition of enhanced sensors tailor a data collection campaign to meet the client’s objectives. Several recent projects completed by LSI have been in the field of watershed and flood analysis, forestry health and geologic stratigraphy mapping. LSI’s LiDAR system technology is constantly developing and exploring upcoming technologies to address these new projects and the evolving requirements of our clients.

Featured Project: Hydrology – Saskatchewan

Forestry Applications

LSI has been involved in several aspects of forestry LiDAR from cut block identification and access road engineering to biomass volumetric and temporal change analysis. The latest waveform scanning laser technology opens up new data sets for foresters to enhance their understanding of vegetation conditions and environments with less field time and access to larger sample areas.


Mining Applications

LSI has recently been involved in several new and exciting areas in the mining industry. Initially, LSI was involved primarily in typical DTM and volumetric mapping, but more recent projects have LSI performing time-sequenced topographic modeling to facilitate subsidence monitoring, and precision slope determination for ore slurry pipeline engineering. Mining projects have taken LSI to three continents and a wide range of environments, from the boreal forest and plains of Canada to the jungles of Borneo and Madagascar. Mining companies are now implementing ortho-mosaic imagery to assist in their engineering analysis of the project areas.

Featured Project: Eastern Madagascar and Nicaragua

Oil & Gas Applications

LSI’s experience in oil field LiDAR collection spans many sub-categories, from seismic topographic mapping to engineering and as-built facility mapping of pipelines corridors, access roads and utility right of ways. LSI’s fixed-wing installation kit makes LSI cost competitive on the tender list of many wide area projects. LSI’s team of experts can deliver the data in a wide array of formats allowing quick and painless integration into your own specific software packages.

Featured Project: Northeast Alberta

Pipeline Applications

LSI has collected LiDAR survey pipeline corridor data for proposed water pipeline routes, ore slurry pipelines and other corridor applications. The highly detailed topographic information obtained from the LiDAR surveys is being used in all phases of the pipeline project, from route selection to engineering design and construction. The airborne LiDAR topographic data and digital imagery can be used to optimize alignment of new route corridors and project life-cycle analysis.
