Surveys and New Technologies

Surveying is basic to all civil engineering works. It is the single engineering function that links all the elements of a project: from conception, land acquisition, design and construction to final Monumentation and mapping. The function of the Office of Field Surveys Services is to provide professional & technical Surveying expertise, new engineering technology assistance, and related services to our clients in support of their efforts to improve, maintain, and operate California's transportation systems.


LiDAR Survey facilitates the acquisition of data of thousand points over the Earth's surface within a fraction of a second accurately. LiDAR is one of the most important breakthrough in Optical Remote Sensing technologies. LiDAR means Light Detection And Ranging. LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) is the Remote Sensing technology that can find the range and other information about a particular distant object by the means of measuring the properties of scattered lights.
