Kokusai Kogyo Leverages LiDAR Data to Quickly Deliver Map to Aid in Disaster Recovery and Reconstruction

By utilizing MicroStation to effectively manipulate and analyze the dense point-cloud data captured by airborne LiDAR sensor, as well as Bentley Pointools for the viewing, animation, and editing of the point clouds, Kokusai Kogyo managed to reduce the overall cost of the project by about 60 percent.

A topographic map was delivered in two months, two to four months less than a map created using conventional methods. This comprehensive map not only contributed to the rapid response and provided necessary geospatial insights for recovery and reconstruction work, but also contributed to future damage mitigation design work.
