Description

Cataloguing Electric and Power Corridors for Transmission, Distribution and Substations with LiDAR scanning has become more efficient in the past few years. However, the Electrical Grid is one of the largest machines on earth and there’s a lot of information that is often missed or not collected at all. In this presentation we aims to improve the quality of the collection of such information with a combination of Mobile LiDAR data and the right extraction tools and methods. This presentation will explore how to collect and label towers, poles, wires, attachment points, clearances and more. The presenter will emphasize how the implementation of Mobile LIDAR into this type of utility survey will add value to current collection processes and/or improve established workflows by extracting only what’s needed, vectorizing poles, wires and attachment points, with a few simple steps; and producing a light-weight ‘geolocated’ deliverable to then export seamlessly to ArcGIS or to other database platforms. This well-defined process will improve the quality of the information extracted without sacrificing schedules.
