Description

Merlin is the marine LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) system developed specifically for cost-effective and safer coastal, offshore and inland waterway surveying. Extremely robust, portable, and well-engineered, Merlin provides eye-safe, long-range laser scanning that enables the capture, processing, and analysis of geospatial point cloud data quickly and accurately.

Information acquired by Carlson’s time-tagged Merlin marine laser scanner combines seamlessly with bathymetric echosounder data for complete datasets that reveal the full landscape above and below the waterline in the same survey.

Obtaining a full 360° point cloud with Merlin quickly and safely:

Speeds up project timescales

Minimizes the amount of time crew spend in potentially hazardous areas

Reduces the surveying costs associated with complex vessel-based surveying assignments
