Why is LiDAR such a valuable tool  in the oil and gas industry today? 

Visual Modeling Analysis Inc.

Why is LiDAR such a valuable tool in the oil and gas industry today?  The table below is part of a case study completed by one of VMA's clients. 

The study compares the costs and timelines between conventional planning and surveying to LiDAR planning and surveying.
The list of industries and how they use this technology is long and vast, but here are some examples

- Municipal Development - Grading, drainage, pre-construction estimates

- Power Line Industry - Right-of-way planning, vegetation encroachment, catenary calculations, simulations

- Airport Authority - Obstacle Limitation Surface (OLS) interference

- Telecommunication and Radio Industry - Right-of-way planning, obstruction analysis (line of sight)

- Mining - Volume calculations, environmental impact, simulations

- Forestry - Tree height, vegetation density

- Transportation - Right-of-way planning, pre-construction estimates

- Oil & Gas - Pipeline and access road right-of-way, well site placement

- Environmental Monitoring - Vegetation density, shoreline mapping
