7 September 2006: Optimal Geomatics Inc., has announced the award of a LiDAR survey project valued at US$380,000 for a new transmission line right of way providing additional interconnectivity between Southern California, Arizona, and the southwestern desert region. This project requires a fast-track approach to data acquisition and processing to deliver a ready-to-design terrain model along with associated topographic mapping information and aerial photography.
The project specifications entail Optimal providing a 3D elevation model complete with height measurements of above ground wires, poles, and vegetation that affect the safe and efficient design of the new line. The end-product will significantly assist in the designing and implementation of a reliable and economically beneficial new transmission line right of way.
Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Optimal Geomatics specializes in the science and technology of gathering, analyzing, interpreting, distributing and using geographic information. Optimal applies the disciplines of surveying, mapping, remote sensing, GIS, and GPS to provide solutions for engineering and geospatial professionals.
