I have a trip planned this week to observe and report on the folks at H2H (based in Troy, New York) using a boat equipped with LiDAR and a side scan sonar. They have a contract to document the conditions of a series of locks connecting the Hudson River with Lake Champlain. Seems like one of those projects where I can’t imagine how they did it before these technologies were available.
Thanks to Mark Farber from H2H for the invite. Let me know if you have any questions about this data fusion effort and I will try to get the answers.
P.S. I also made a contact last week with a person, Meg Waters that is integrating ground penetrating radar and laser scanning – above and below ground 3D. More on this to follow. These are fertile areas for important innovation.
