Pipeline Construction

DEMs, feature-coded LiDAR and digital orthomosaics are invaluable tools for technical evaluations of proposed pipeline construction projects, including, geomorphological studies and environmental impact assessments. An example of the critical way Terra can support pipeline construction is in river and stream crossing areas, which present significant challenges in route selection, design and pipeline construction. Use of Terra’s LiDAR data, representing the true ground beneath the vegetation canopy, aids design engineers in identifying ground instabilities and other features that prohibit the development of a safe, low impact, and economical pipeline location. The result often yields significant savings in the final pipeline construction phase.
