Aero-Graphics uses aerial imagery and LiDAR data to create models that help our clients identify, quantify, and analyze the terrain within their purview. One application of this is to identify failed terrain such as landslides and flows from environmental or human causes. These models, in the form of maps, orthoimages, point clouds, DEMs, DSMs, or DTMs, help us better understand the areas of concern.
We can also analyze the proximity from the failure to other features such as roads, buildings, forest stands and urban infrastructure. Our LiDAR sensor penetrates vegetation and can accurately depict terrain failure beneath full leaf-on canopy, an impossible feat using traditional photogrammetry.
