  Project Data
Funds: $328,689
Staff Responsibility: Edward T. Harrigan
Research Agency: Oregon State University
Principal Investigator: Michael Olsen
Effective Date: 9/14/2011
Completion Date: 6/15/2015
Comments: The guide is available as NCHRP Report 748.

The objective of this research is to develop guidelines for the use of mobile LiDAR technology in transportation applications.
 
The guidelines shall (1) be based on an analysis of current and emerging applications in areas such as project planning, project development, construction, operations, maintenance, safety, research, and asset management; (2) address data collection methods, formatting and management, storage requirements, quality assurance, and the translation and formatting of derived products; and (3) be based on and organized around performance criteria such as data precision, local (relative) accuracy, network (absolute) accuracy, and point density.
 
STATUS
