Innovative Thinking: Dr. Srini Dharmapuri, MAEC Geospatial Director’s Photogrammetry and LiDAR White Paper

A Engineering Consultants has been providing Photogrammetry and LiDAR services for various agencies including DOTs since 2010.

A challenge faced by transportation agencies is the requirement of engineering quality topography during planning. The new design projects demand topographic information with a high vertical accuracy of 1.5 cm to 3 cm or even better and its generation is not only technically challenging but also necessitates additional logistic arrangements like a solid control layout, meticulous flight planning, etc. MA Engineering Consultants with its long history of investing in the best people and technology understands that surveying and mapping are critical elements to all road networks.

On multiple projects for DOTs MAEC has generated highly accurate LiDAR data products using helicopter-based LiDAR data collection supported by digital leveling. In all of the projects, MAEC has been able to achieve excellent vertical accuracy. Dr. Srini Dharmapuri, Geospatial Director has developed a white paper on our experience which was published in the recent edition of LiDAR Magazine.

We will be happy to assist you in similar types of projects. Contact me at  for more information on our LiDAR experience.
