HERE announces mobile LiDAR data, street-level imagery, and core geospatial data now accessible within Bentley’s Orbit for reality modelling and digital twin workflows

HERE Technologies, a location data and technology platform, announced the availability of a solution that makes it easier for U.S. departments of transportation (DOTs) to conduct fixed asset management activities, plan capital investments, and deliver infrastructure performance assessments according to federal regulations.

HERE data sources, including HERE map, light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data, and street level imagery, are now accessible within Bentley Systems’ Orbit, an on-premises application or cloud service for managing, analyzing and sharing reality meshes, extremely large point clouds, imagery, and traditional GIS data. Now, state and city DOTs can quickly build digital twins, which are highly accurate 3D representations of their physical realities, without the time and cost required to acquire the LiDAR and street-level imagery themselves.

LiDAR data is one of the most powerful 3D reality modeling technologies available. HERE LiDAR data enables agencies to identify and locate fixed assets with high geospatial accuracy, as well as measure, extract, and report on those features. HERE captures the world’s road networks and urban environments with its fleet of LiDAR and 360° camera-equipped vehicles.
