Side-scan Sonar - Underwater 3D Models
FODAR (creating 3D rendered point cloud - structure from motion) using photographic techniques provides an alternative to LIDAR for certain applications - especially augmented reality applications.
3D Point Cloud Modeling
LIDAR is an excellent technology choice for surface mapping/modeling.
In partnership with EMC, Inc. (specialists in land surveying and mapping), Aerotec combines airborne LIDAR digital terrain models with 3D side-scan sonar point cloud data to provide continuous surface / subsurface mapping - in particular pipeline water crossings (rivers & bays).

LIDAR (3D point clouds) is an excellent technology choice for mapping/modeling of terresterial areas and corridors.
