Selecting an area of land for a pipeline requires an accurate assessment of potential paths. Each corridor of land will have its own issues: location, current land use, the terrain, existing infrastructure, and environment concerns. Once built, that pipeline also must be monitored for maintenance planning and security operations.
Surveys in remote and inhospitable terrain are difficult to perform, potentially dangerous, and often expensive.
Airborne mapping solutions from Applanix, including POS AV / POSTrack and POSPac MMS, use Direct Georeferencing for high-efficiency aerial mapping of land corridors. Land for pipelines can be quickly and cost-effectively mapped and monitored.
