I have been operating and managing LIDAR projects using the TITAN mobile laser scanning system for over two years now, in a variety of projects from coast to coast. This post contains some information on the hardware and various photos of the TITAN mobile laser scanning system.
The following co-authored paper featuring my graduate LiDAR research work at the AGRG was published in the Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing in 2006. Airborne light detection and ranging (LiDAR) has the spatial density and vertical precision required to map coastal areas at risk of flooding from water levels typically 1–2 m higher than predicted tides during storm surges. In this study …
Total stations combine a number of technologies to achieve remarkable accuracy and reliability. The first, an extension of traditional transits and theodolites, is the ability to …
more information from surveying with the Leica Total Station (TCR1105)
The total station can be used to survey in locations where you do not know the value of the point upon witch it is setup upon. This technique is often used when you have two points with known established coordinate values but are not in an ideal place to perform your survey from, or at times where you wish to progress further into an unknown survey region.
Included here is a report written for an ArcPad / Trimble mobile mapping project, a presentation that covered all aspects of the project and more general information and links about GIS mobile mapping. The report includes all code used in designing the ArcPad application (visual basic, XML etc). The presentation was presented at COGS in Lawerncetown, Nova Scotia during the fall of 2003. The existing AGRG weather station network now consists of 14 tripods and 1 tower setups (as of Aug 2004).
