LU leads the industry in cutting-edge course mapping services affording unparalleled insights. M4 – Map, Measure, Model, Manage – is a precision modeling program that delivers high-resolution surface maps. With airborne and terrestrial technologies, we produce world-class data sets that can be used in a wide range of land development and management applications. Since its inception, we have continued to evolve our industry-leading survey techniques and software platforms to address the unique needs of our clients, affording deliverables with unprecedented accuracy and unparalleled insights. Watch our explainer video to learn more.
Our FAA-certified drone operators develop and execute a flight path over client properties using a multirotor or fixed-wing drone. These specially designed drones use a combination of GPS and prescribed onboard sensors to create a high-resolution aerial image and hyper-accurate surface model of the property. We use 3D laser scanners that yield sub-centimeter accuracy for areas demanding heightened levels of precision.
M4 – Map. Measure. Model. Manage. Each of the four components builds off the Map exercise in a stepwise fashion, adding value and new perspectives at every stage.
"The M4 program provided us with powerful insights based on a three-dimensional aerial inventory with survey-grade accuracy. LU's follow up overview based on the topographical analysis prompted great conversations and numerous opportunities for field-specific capital projects at different levels of spending."
