High-definition LiDAR mapping is utilized by a variety of disciplines offering improved worker safety, higher accuracy of survey data, and rapid project turnaround. LiDAR mapping and high-definition surveys are terrestrial non-intrusive means of collecting accurate and detailed as-built data, benefitting individuals in the planning, engineering, and construction fields.

LiDAR utilizes the latest cutting-edge scanning technology to sweep across a target object as hundreds of thousands of measurements are taken, displaying an intense representation of the target result. Once captured, these results can be evaluated much like a physical 3D model. This method is revolutionizing the industry, and is doing so more quickly, and at a lower cost than traditional surveying techniques. It also enhances surveyor safety for those working on projects in which data is needed along heavily trafficked highways.

Our team of experienced professionals utilizes the most advanced scanning technology, providing our clients with the data they need in a way that also saves them valuable time and money as they move through their process.

What Are Environmental Surveys? | Corona, CA

Environmental surveys can encompass groundwater sampling, a crucial component to
understand when considering the potential use of a given area. Well surveying is implemented to understand the direction and gradient of groundwater flow. The state of California is interested in understanding the potential impact and monitoring the present impact of actions previously taken, on the groundwater quality throughout the state.
In order to conduct a thorough environmental survey, the wells and/or borings are surveyed for their horizontal and vertical locations.

Our experienced team of professionals will evaluate the vertical elevations at the top of the monitoring well vault, the top of the well casing or surrounding port, and the ground surface. Horizontal locations are measured at the center points.

This information can be uploaded to GeoTracker, the state’s Water Board GIS data system.
This system contains records for known cleanup sites and Department of Defense sites, as well as unregulated projects such as irrigated lands, oil and gas production, operating permitted USTs and land disposal sites.

How Weather Can Affect Your Land Survey | Corona, CA

When it comes to land surveying, there are plenty of obstacles that can come into play during a typical day at work. One of these obstacles is the weather, especially during the winter season. It may seem like living in Southern California, an area that is 95% sunny day, wouldn’t be an issue, but you would be surprised – we have our own set of weather issues.

In the spring season, rain can always be an issue, and even though it isn’t a common occurrence, the sporadic nature of our rain season can make things tricky. Dressing appropriately will not only keep you dry, but also safe. And the same goes for your equipment. Because surveying is an outdoor job, everything and everyone needs to be protected. After the rain comes mud, so additional caution needs to be paid in work zones.

If you work in the winter season, there is a chance you may be working in snowy conditions. The problem is that it is likely covering up what you need to be surveying, like dangerous obstacles and essential sights such as property corners, flagging, and downed fences that you need to see to be able to complete your work.

Some may think the job is easier in this sunny climate, but the sun can often play tricks by creating shadows where you don’t want them. And let’s face it – the Santa Ana winds are a strong force to reckon with. Not only is it tough to stand in one place, but a workstation can easily become unlevel. Surveying is all about working around Mother Nature’s plans.

Remember: We may live in Southern California, the land of sunny days, but it can become quite extreme. You and your equipment have their limits.
