Jeff Fagerman at Lidar USA donated the use of his mobile mapping system and sent Graham to help the City of Baltimore deal with the aftermath of the recent riots.
The ScanLook 2.0 system on the SUV, also called “Snoopy” because of its shape, employs a “GoLook” camera system that includes seven high-definition video cameras that record 360-degree views.
The technology has been in use since the mid-2000s by engineering firms, Graham says. This is the first time a LiDAR system has scanned riot damage, according to the Graham. After Hurricane Sandy, the company sent Snoopy into flooded New York subway tunnels attached to a work train to find structural damage.
Thanks to Jeff and his team for volunteering this support.
