Preliminary Planning

Friday, September 13th, 2013

As a medium resolution data set the NEXTMap® 5m terrain data plays an important role between high precision ground survey or LiDAR and lower resolution ‘free’ data. This sweet spot is the realm of preliminary planning or site location analysis when a project needs to be defined but not yet calculated. The use of the NEXTMap data during this initial phase may have higher upfront costs, but in the long run, the more precise a preliminary plan is the less re-work you will experience down the line. Site planning is just one of the many applications that the 5 meter data is suited for, and I will jump into others in following posts.
