Innovation in Industry?

Post by BC.Surveyor »

What new area’s of the spatial data capture industry are you paying attention to because you foresee they may gain market share as time goes on?

Ok coarse there are the obvious ones like aerial lidar, which is X years will probably replace the vast majority of “hand” topos as sensors continually get better, cheaper and smaller and processing gets easier and faster. Or terrestrial/SLAM lidar for all the same reasons.

But are there any you’ve noticed that aren’t getting as much attention? Airborne bathymetry? Scan to BIM with automation via machine learning? Integrating SUE with AR? The creation and implementation of “true” digital twins? Auto drafting/calcing plats via Image recognition & AI?

Im keeping a close eye at these guys;
Can totally see these become so advanced they might replace some field people in the surveying world, aka my job.

We are obviously looking closely at AI with CAD/BIM modeling. Especially for as-build based on 3d pointcloud data. We are not there yet but things are moving super fast.
