Woolpert announced it purchased its fourth Leica Geosystems TerrainMapper, a linear-mode aerial lidar sensor, to support the firm’s geospatial growth worldwide.

Woolpert owns and operates more than 15 sensors and a fleet of more than a dozen aircraft and helps test new lidar systems at the federal level.

Leica Geosystems said the TerrainMapper collects lidar data at high altitudes, across complex and variable terrain. “The TerrainMapper provides an increased efficiency resulting in higher density through higher pulse rate, higher laser power and gateless technology,” said Jonas Svoboda, aerial acquisition manager. “Collections take less time than they did previously, and the camera enables us to more easily co-collect data. These advancements are an added benefit for our clients and therefore highly valuable to us.”
