3D at Depth today announced their integrated subsea LiDAR technology delivered a new generation of enhanced 3D models and imagery for several recent customer projects. Each of the projects varied in scope, complexity, and depth with several of the locations requiring survey implementation near or around sensitive marine archaeological sites. Originally, 3D at Depth launched the first commercially available subsea LiDAR solution to serve the offshore oil and gas market.
Today, the company has seen considerable interest from other industries where measurable, repeatable, millimetric data sets are a priority. Using the innovations developed for offshore metrologies and inspections, 3D at Depth was able to create advanced applications for deep-water marine archaeological site and structure mapping. For these particular projects, 3D at Depth's unique steerable LiDAR beam, combined with their powerful back-end software program, expanded the survey footprint and allowed for greater data penetration models. Last summer, 3D at Depth worked closely with a team from BBC One's television program, "Italy's Invisible Cities," hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Dr. Michael Scott. The episode uncovers 2,500 years of hidden history in Naples, from its earliest Greek and Roman origins, using 3D at Depth's LiDAR scanning technology. The show explored how the volcano of Mount Vesuvius both nurtured the region and exacted a terrible price on the local population. Also, the hosts delved into a labyrinth of fascinating underground spaces that helped build and sustain the city. The program aired on 4th January on BBC One and is available at the BBC online store.
