ESP Associates, P.A. took delivery of their RIEGL VMX-1HA high speed, high performance dual scanner mobile mapping system and immediately put it to work. ESP took their scanner up to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to work on the LaDOTD 1-10 widening project with NTB Associates.
Utilizing the VMX-1HA hardware and RIEGL software suite to scan and survey the roads allows the state of Louisiana to save money by reducing the number of crews needed, reduces the need for road closures as the crew can scan while driving at highway speeds, and increases safety for both the surveying crews and the drivers on the road.
“The functionality and ability to see the data collected in RiACQUIRE makes managing the data capture of a large-scale project such as this one in Baton Rouge very easy. My team was able to assess the project’s needs, see our coverage and review the records to ensure the completeness of the collection mission. The new automated target detection functions in RiPROCESS ensures that tie objects are accurately placed, making point cloud registration much more streamlined.” said Ryan Swingley, P.S., Geospatial Manager with ESP Associates, P.A.
