95West Aerial Mapping

95West Aerial Mapping formally KBM GeoSpatial, LLC. has completed integration and training finalizing the delivery of cutting-edge RIEGL VQ-1560 II-S airborne laser scanners.  

 The new VQ-1560 II-S system, with its doubled laser power and high pulse frequency, will allow 95West Aerial Mapping to more efficiently achieve a wide variety of projects; from wide area collections to ultra-density corridor collections.  

 95West Aerial Mapping’s name might be new, but their team has the 

geospatial experience that is ready to deliver on day one with the VQ-1560 II-S. Miles Strain, Aerial Services Manager Vice President joins the team with 

over 35 years of acquisition experience in Geospatial. He looks forward to deploying the system and being able to turn around jobs faster than ever before thanks to the new upgraded software and efficient workflow of RIEGL. They are among the first users to receive RIEGL’s new SNL (Serial number licenses) which allows for unlimited processing and ready to use for cloud or distributive processing setups.

 The team not only chose the new VQ-1560 II-S for the sensor’s collection efficiency, but also for its ability to pair with their new Vexcel UltraCam Eagle Mark 3 which was added at the same time to provided their clients with a truly unique and unrivaled paring. Not losing any momentum, they also completed the purchase of a band new aircraft Cessna 208B Grand Caravan and made the custom modifications to allow for two camera ports to be added. This very ambitious triple acquisition is part of the company’s desire to provide their clients with the best imagery and LiDAR data available.   

 “With the new RIEGL VQ-1560 II-S, 95West now has the capacity to service larger projects of greater coverage areas with improved levels of detail and accuracy for federal, state, and local governments, utilities, and private entities, ” said Miles Strain, CP, RPP – 95West Aerial Mapping’s Aerial Services Manager VP.
