March 31, 2015 — Optech is pleased to announce that long-time client SAM (Survey And Mapping, LLC) has acquired a second Lynx Mobile Mapper™ to meet the growing demand for high-accuracy surveying and geospatial services.
Survey And Mapping, LLC (SAM), a leading provider of geospatial solutions, has acquired a second Lynx mobile mapping system. SAM is well known for its experience providing mobile mapping, terrestrial HDS, and aerial mapping for clients in several market sectors, such as Energy and Transportation. The dual-sensor Optech unit has the capability to acquire measurements at a rate of one million lidar points per second at normal highway speeds. Imagery is also collected via high-resolution 360-degree digital sensors synchronized to create high density, survey-grade colorized point clouds. SAM is a national company with completed projects across North America. The additional Lynx unit doubles their mobile mapping capacity and further extends their acquisition capabilities across a greater geographic range.
“We have found SAM to be a progressive and creative business partner that places a premium on generating accurate solutions for their clients. The launch of LMS 3.0 will complement the addition of the second system by allowing them to generate design-grade data very cost-effectively. We are excited about our continued partnership,” said Albert Iavarone, Business Unit Manager of Optech’s Mobile Survey division.
