As with many geospatial data acquisition approaches, the technologies that make LiDAR possible have experienced numerous advancements over the years with the aim to increase usability and decrease cost.
Each year, POB looks at this market segment to examine what changes are taking place. The current 2015-2016 Laser Scanning Surveying Trends study completed in December 2016 by POB and BNP Market Research describes what we found.
Since 1990, 185 New Yorkers had lost their lives along Queens Boulevard — most of them pedestrians — and Mayor Bill de Blasio decided it was time to stop this so-called “Boulevard of Death” from killing again.
