The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has developed a proposed draft of terrestrial laser scanning specifications. The proposed draft includes both stationary and mobile scanning and is based on the efforts of the Caltrans Laser Scanning Technical Advisory Committee, UC Davis Advanced Highway Maintenance and Construction Technology Research Center (AHMCT) researchers, Caltrans District 4 staff and external partners and consultants. The department is also participating in TRB AFB80 and other workgroups.

The proposed draft is currently being reviewed by Caltrans staff statewide as well as external partners that were involved in earlier reviews and the development of guidelines and specifications. Anyone interested in reviewing and commenting on the proposed draft laser scanning specifications should e-mail Robert M. McMillan. All comments are due by May 31.
