North Dakota Oil Gathering System

North Dakota

Due to the need for precise knowledge of the topography, SAM, Inc. acquired helicopter based LiDAR at approximately 40 points per square meter for a 500-foot wide by 135 mile long corridor (vertical elevations at 10cm RMSEz) to support the construction of a crude petroleum pipeline. Simultaneously, RGB imagery was collected at a 2-inch pixel resolution for the entire route. Deliverables included a digital terrain model with 1-foot contours, and 2-inch pixel orthophotography.
