Tenn. city uses LiDAR for road survey

US: The city of Spring Hill in Tennessee is using a mobile mapping truck to help determine true cost estimates and right-of-way restrictions for the widening of US Highway 31, which is the busiest road in the city. City officials anticipate the work will be the most accurate and thorough land survey Spring Hill has ever seen. The project is expected to cost around 43,000 dollars and will be completed by surveying, mapping and engineering firms Wiser and EMC. The mapping truck will take photos of every segment of the road and related right-of-ways, and piece them together, much like the Google Maps Street View car. LiDAR technology will be used to measure distances.
