Fugro has an ideal solution for acquiring large scale topographic information. Our FLI-MAP is the ideal mapping tool for large area surveys, because the system can be integrated in one of Fugro’s own planes. By flying multiple passes with the FLI-MAP system wide corridors and wide areas can be surveyed.
Fugro has flown many large area projects, for example for flood management analysis, and always offer our clients the most effective solution for their request. Various fields of large area surveys applications are:
- Flood Plain Models – Water Management Authorities
The ability to survey wide areas is very useful to protect very large areas with a rather low height difference for flooding by executing pre-studies and simulation programs.
- 3D City Modeling - Municipalities
The ability to survey wide areas is very useful for data collection of cities for detailed city development/design purposes, updating actual GIS data base and providing multiple users within an organization/municipality with the same GIS-basis/accuracy.
- Open pit survey – volume calculations
As the data is being captured with a high accuracy the differences in the terrain over time can be calculated and presented in a fast and accurate way. This is a safe and precise way to determine the volume changes. This can be either a large open pit survey or relatively small surveys of a waste/disposal area.
- Very accurate determination of specific areas
As the data is being captured with a high accuracy a very detailed and precise terrain model can be generated for various purposes e.g. golf courses, race track design, rail-/road rehabilitation, Vine yards, gardens, sport fields, leisure areas, artificial beaches to name a few.
- Simulation purposes
For various purposes it is desired to have detailed and accurate data, either for people flow management or for general electronic simulation programs and games.
- For security purposes
For various purposes it is very important to have detailed and accurate data, either for people flow management studies near/along large and crowded areas like stadiums and conference & exhibition centre’s or specific places with respect to security issues.
