Spokane Region LiDAR Control Survey

Spokane, Washington



LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology provides BPA's transmission line design engineers, cartographic technicians, and vegetation maintenance project managers with exceptionally accurate 3-D topographical data. This is critically important for building, maintaining, and operating transmission lines which provide approximately 45 percent of the power used across the Pacific Northwest.

The OBEC survey team set 21 new primary control monuments and 88 secondary control points for LiDAR-based mapping of the BPA's system in remote areas of eastern Washington, northern Idaho, and western Montana. OBEC survey crews have performed similar projects for BPA in Oregon's Willamette Valley and Washington's Olympic Region.
