Data aquisition & management process

Herzog utilizes several data collection technologies to meet customers specific requirements. Beyond this collection, the management, processing, and storage of the data is equally as important. Herzog implements a multitude of processes to ensure data is both highly available and securely stored.

Collection

Herzog’s LiDAR survey enables technicians to capture assets 100 feet or more from the track. The GPS system, LiDAR scanning, and high-resolution camera collect a comprehensive data for tasks such as ballast profiling and PTC asset identification.

Processing

The amount of data collected during a LiDAR survey is immense. Our data processing teams analyze these data streams into customizable database solutions and allow our clients to export information on crossing elevations, slope measurements, and asset location.

Capabilities

Ballast and ditch profiling

Once data is loaded into the ProScan software, cut and fill calculations are completed for ballast spreading or ditch maintenance.

Asset detection & location

The scan processes both small and large-scale measurements for crossings, buildings, bridges, power lines, signs, vegetation encroachment, signs, etc., and marks its exact GPS location.
