Houston, Texas – The Terrapoint division of Ambercore, the 4D Company, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Tridex Solutions to provide an innovative LiDAR solution for Dauphin Island, Alabama. Terrapoint acquired aerial LiDAR data concurrent with terrestrial LiDAR data captured using the TITAN mobile scanning system. Tridex Solutions will mine these two data sets for a multitude of applications on Dauphin Island.

Terrapoint’s high-accuracy aerial LiDAR data will be used to develop an accurate topographic base map for the island. Due to Dauphin Island’s unique position as a barrier island in Mobile Bay, detailed and accurate topographic information is critical for assisting decision makers on numerous fronts including planning, environmental issues, public safety, transportation and infrastructure.

A TITAN mobile scanning system was deployed to acquire as-built information for much of Dauphin Island’s infrastructure and transportation network. This highly accurate data will be used to develop an as-built database for the island. Government officials will be able to use this database when assessing the island’s transportation and infrastructure needs.

“We are excited to work with such a detailed, accurate data set,” said Bob Vashisth, President of Tridex Solutions. “Having both aerial LiDAR data and terrestrial LiDAR data from the TITAN mobile scanning system, will allow us to address the critical information needs for Dauphin Island,” remarked Vashisth.

James Ferguson, President of Terrapoint observed, “Using both aerial and terrestrial LiDAR data is an innovative, and logical approach. These data sets are complimentary – with the aerial data providing foundation topographic information for the entire island, while the TITAN data provides very detailed information about the island’s infrastructure.”

TITAN is a vehicle-mounted, mobile laser scanning system developed and sold by the TITAN division of Ambercore. TITAN collects a dense and accurate 360 degree data set at highway speeds without interfering with traffic flow. It also eliminates traffic-related risks to field survey personnel as the system is wholly operated from within the vehicle.
