LiDAR is the technology of choice for deriving highly accurate terrain data and 3D models. However, combined hardware and software improvements in digital aerial cameras and digital photogrammetry offer new point cloud possibilities.
With 3D printing on the verge of going
mainstream, 3D motion control making gaming
more realistic, and 3D design tools aiding
the visualization of everything from
buildings and infrastructure to underground
pipelines, 3D innovation is everywhere.
As oil and gas production continues to increase in North America, the need for geophysical exploration grows with it. Seismic surveyors are adapting to meet the challenges posed by increased demand, cost constrains and environmental concern.
