SPR 20-586: Utilization of LiDAR Technology: When to Use It and Why?

Grants and Contracts Details


LiDAR technology can add value to almost any transportation project. However, the costs of data collection and post-processing may outweigh the overall benefits. This project will explore where LiDAR technology is most feasible and affordable for KYTC operations. Once a good understanding of the benefits and cost of collecting and using LiDAR data are established, this project will address issues on how to best store data, what software solutions KYTC should consider for post processing, and how data can be utilized within multiple divisions. The research objective is to dentify how LiDAR technology can benefit cabinet operations.
