“Preserve and Protect Bandelier National Monument” – Article featured in LiDAR News

In the article, Justin Henderson, Project Manager at Atlantic, details the historical significance of Bandelier National Monument and the capabilities of LiDAR to serve our National Parks Services. Justin’s love for our National Parks made him the perfect project manager for our team. In recent years, Bandelier has been devastated by fire and floods – changing the landscape, canopy and the entire ecosystem. The National Park Service partnered with Atlantic in an effort to preserve and protect our national treasure. Together, they decided to combat the devastation that Bandelier was experiencing by using the latest airborne laser scanning technology available. Much like the rich history, natural and cultural wonders- one has to go beyond what the naked eye could see to appreciate what Bandelier truly has within it; and that Atlantic-National Park Service collaboration aimed to do just that.

Atlantic Expands Acquisition Capabilities with Upgrade to Leica ALS70 Laser Scanner

NORCROSS, GA – Leica Geosystems Inc. announced today that Atlantic has upgraded its ALS60 airborne laser scanner to an ALS70-HP, making Atlantic one of only a few firms in North America to operate two ALS70-HP systems.

With a fleet of five aircraft, Atlantic provides a full-range of airborne remote sensing services supported on the ground by end-to-end geospatial information extraction, surveying and consulting capabilities. On its LiDAR projects, the firm typically conducts both wide-area and corrirodor mapping for federal, state and local government agencies, as well as many private firms. Atlantic currently operates a large format Z/I Imaging DMC (Digital Mapping Camera), and a Leica RCD105 digital camera, which can be co-registered with the ALS70-HP laser scanners. With the latest upgrade, the firm made a conscious decision to exclusively use Leica equipment and software. “We believe there are significant benefits to having compatible and interchangeable equipment,” said Brian Mayfield, President and COO of Atlantic. “The workflows are similar across the board, and the Leica mission planning software is integrated between aerial imagery and LiDAR collection to improve our efficiency. An added advantage is having an […]
