Bathymetric LiDAR

Bathymetric LiDAR is a technique to capture geospatial data of the coastline and shallow waters, facilitating efficient and fast hydrographic data. At Field, we use airborne laser scanning to gather laser data on land and water and have extensive experience in bathymetric laser scanning (green laser) in sea and freshwater areas, including rivers.

Bathymetric lidar

Bathymetric LiDAR is ideal for surveying shallow waters and surrounding land areas with high accuracy and precision.

The data collected is vital for mapping hazards such as landslides and flooding, project planning of security measures, and other planning needs in river basins.  
When collecting depth data in shallow coastal sea areas along the beach zone, the data contributes to a comprehensive terrain model that binds traditional topographic data together with sonar data collected from boat-based systems. 

The collected data is compiled and usually delivered as a terrain model or elevation contours, possibly with orthophoto as an additional product.

We also perform data collection with a multibeam echo sounder allowing us to complement data in areas where the airborne sensor will not work optimally.
