LiDAR technology lends itself particularly well to transmission line surveys. Lasermap has provided power line surveys for prominent electrical power companies. The company has completed several hundred miles of power line surveys.
Some Lasermap surveys have been used for pre-construction projects, where towers are sited according to the terrain data collected by the LiDAR system. Others have been surveys of existing transmission lines to collect ground and encroachment information as well as catenary information concerning the transmission lines.
