  • Fourth Return LiDAR Data Point Clouds.
  • Active x, y, z Data Points
  • Georeferenced LiDAR Data Point Clouds
  • AutoCAD + MicroStation Compatible Data

Founded in the late 1950s, LiDAR technology was discovered shortly after the laser was invented. Laser scanning was combined with laser focused imaging to calculate distances by measuring the time it takes the laser beam to return. LiDAR is an acronym originating from the terms “light” and “radar”. LiDAR as an acronym for Light Detection And Ranging began in the 1970s as the true definition of LiDAR.

LiDAR Hawaii’s LiDAR Mapping systems collect active x, y, z data points in real time. LiDAR Hawaii produces AutoCAD + MicroStation compatible x, y, z data points. Our LiDAR Data is superior to interpolated data generated with Photogrammetry.

LiDAR Hawaii includes high resolution Geo-referenced Orthoimages with every LiDAR Mapping Project. Our orthorectified images combine aerial photograph characteristics with the geometric qualities of maps. All of our Orthorectified images are ground truthed by our in-house land surveying department.

What is LiDAR?

Laser scanning or remote sensing is a LiDAR Mapping technology. LiDAR illuminates targets with laser lights using algorithms to measures distance. LiDAR scanning captures LiDAR data point clouds using topographic elevations for contour mapping. LiDAR technology is used for 3D modeling or 3D mapping. LiDAR has active x, y, z data points. LiDAR is used for topographic mapping. It is also used to create digital terrain models (DTMs) and digital elevation models (DEMs). LiDAR data is combined with orthorectified high resolution aerial photographs to make photo mosaic maps. LiDAR is great for projects for civil engineers, land surveyors, and urban developers.

Many mainland LiDAR companies hired to do LiDAR projects in the State of Hawaii end up subcontracting our local Hawaiian company Aerial Surveying Inc. to do their actual remote sensing or laser scanning for the LiDAR data collection on your project. These mainland companies charge you extra in order to cover the cost of subcontracting Aerial Surveying, Inc. to collect your Hawaii LiDAR data on the islands. Don’t be fooled …we are a local Hawaii island company established in the State since 2003. We will always bid your Hawaii LiDAR projects lower than any mainland company since we do not carry the high mobilization costs or any subcontracting overcharges.
