Railway companies carry a big responsibility. Millions of people and companies depend on trains for the transportation of goods and people. Improving existing infrastructure and planning future developments requires accurate, detailed geospatial information. FAMM utilizes two advanced LiDAR tools to support these efforts: FLI-MAP and DRIVE-MAP.
FLI-MAP and DRIVE-MAP data can be used for a variety of applications in the rail industry:
Engineering and design
GIS and database population
Analysis of overhead electrification
Positive Train Control (PTC) database
Since 1995, FLI-MAP has mapped over 55,000 miles of railway in the USA.
