OVERVIEW

The 360 Rail Services Geospatial business unit helped provide valuable terrain data in a time of crisis for a Class 1 railroad in the Northwestern United States. Within 18 hours of notification of the issue, our crews were on-site at a landslide collecting LiDAR data using a drone. This highly efficient means of collection provided fast, safe, and highly accurate data to the geotechnical engineers responsible for stabilizing the slide. Our team was able to provide section-sheets with high absolute accuracy within three hours of beginning data collection. The lessons learned on the capabilities of unmanned aerial LiDAR in this project have impacted our approach to similar projects throughout the railroad industry.
