Are you or your company interested in using drone based LiDAR? Recently, Microdrones held a Wednesday Webinar with Morris P. Hebert Inc. to learn how they increased their corridor mapping productivity from 1 miles/day to 3-4 miles/day while also simplifying the photogrammetry processing in the office and providing a denser LiDAR dataset.
If you missed the webinar you can still watch the replay by clicking the picture below. Panelests explain how LiDAR (Light Detecting and Ranging) illuminates the target with a laser, and penetrates through multiple layers, such as a tree canopy, to see all the way to the ground. This makes the technology well-suited for generating 3-D digital terrain models (DTM) in areas with heavy vegetation and rough terrain.
During the webinar, we also examined the differences and benefits of the Microdrones mdLiDAR1000 and mdLiDAR3000.
In this one-hour webinar we covered:
- The challenges of implementing drone-based LiDAR and how to overcome them
- Evaluate the benefits of drone-based LiDAR
- How MPH increased their productivity and workflow in UAS LiDAR Corridor Mapping
- Provided an invitation to a Special Offer for attendees only that expires September 30, 2019

Jonathan C. Morris, Vice President Remote Sensing
While attending LSU, Mr. Morris spent most of his summers working on a survey crew for Morris P. Hebert in Houma. During that time, he served as a rodman and instrumentman on various topographic, hydrographic, and construction surveys across the state. He graduated LSU with a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering and has passed the Fundamentals of Engineering exam. He returned to Morris P. Hebert to manage the hydrographic survey department and has since been involved in various projects.
Mr. Morris was recently named the VP of Remote Sensing. This expansion of role includes not only the direct supervision of the hydrographic surveying services, but also the development and supervision of the Unmanned Aerial System (UAV) services that MPH now offers. In addition to being VP of Remote Sensing, Mr. Morris also has been the lead point of contact for various CPRA and other coastal restoration related projects since 2014.
