About GeoLidar

GeoLidar uses a combination of rapid scanning and artificial intelligence to remove people, vegetation, moving vehicles, and other noise from its high-precision scans, allowing deformation and subsidence to be monitored with millimeter precision.


  • Monitoring subsidence in road surfaces.
  • Monitoring deformation in embankments, walls, and cuttings.
  • Monitoring slope stability and rock movements.


Rapid Scans: GeoLidar takes just three seconds to capture 600,000 data points from a 70° x 70° field of view. This allows moving objects to be identified and eliminated from the point cloud.

Progressive Mapping: With the smearing effects of motion removed, the system can map the point cloud to the road surface. Successive scans fill in areas that were blocked by traffic, pedestrians, and parked cars.

Tracking Mapped Points: With the surface map completed, the system can track the thousands of mapped points, calculating settlement or deformation with sub-millimeter resolution at shorter ranges and millimeter-scale resolution at longer ranges. All processing is done on-board the GeoLidar in real time.

Time-Lapse Photos: GeoLidar captures a photo each time it scans. Photos are uploaded to the cloud for easy viewing and can be merged with the LiDAR data to give a rich 3D experience.


Cloud Connectivity: Monitoring results are sent automatically to the cloud via a 4G/LTE link.

Easy Configuration: A built-in WiFi hotspot allows smartphones or tablets to configure, start/stop, or reset the scanner.




A GeoCloud project website presents the data in map views, graphs, and tabular data. Alerts generated if displacements exceed alarm thresholds.
