Some of the biggest civil engineering companies in the world find themselves with more work than ever before as the businesses continue to find ways to make use of lidar surveying techniques, as well as photogrammetry and other kinds of light detection and ranging systems. From the roads that we drive on to the bridges that help us navigate across across bodies of water of all sizes, the purpose of transportation planning has never been more evident.
When the news headlines talk about a bridge collapse that leads to multiple injuries or a roadway design that has caused more accidents than normal, it is no wonder that there is a high demand for the most sophisticated lidar surveying and other methods that can help avoid some, hopefully all, of these failures.
We live in a time when people are traveling more than ever before, so it only makes sense that there is more strain on the this

During World War II, Dwight D. Eisenhower saw high speed roads in Germany. Inspired by such feats in transportation planning and civil engineer services, he became a champion of s similar project in the United States. In 1956, the Federal Highway Act went through and the result was the modern interstate highway system, which transformed American culture and society. It created 41,000 miles of paved roads throughout the country. Today, that number has grown to 46,876 miles but much of it has fallen into disrepair. Some estimate that as many as 33% of America’s major roadways are in a condition that is considered mediocre or poor.
