Christian Stewart Lidar

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work with lidar equipment? What does Geospatial even mean?

In this installment of our “A Day in the Life” series, we go for a ride with Christian Stewart, a Senior Mobile Lidar Specialist in our West Palm Beach, FL office. Christian has been with WGI for over 17 years and has extensive knowledge and experience in the Geospatial field.

In this video, we catch a glimpse into the West Palm Beach office where Christian works, and learn about one of the perks of getting to work so early in the morning. He lets us sit in on a typical safety meeting with his crew, then takes us out into the field to demonstrate how survey data is collected in real-time using the latest technology in mobile lidar equipment. Then we head back to the office to see how he processes, adjusts and QC’s the data he just collected.

Come see some of the cool ways Christian is using our state-of-the-art technology, as he takes us through what a typical day in his life looks likes here at WGI!

Christian is responsible for collecting, processing, and extracting survey data for a variety of different projects and plays a vital role in our Geospatial team.  He has extensive experience in plan preparation and survey calculations related to route surveys, boundary surveys, topographic surveys, and as-built surveys. He is also extremely proficient in using a multitude of different software programs, most significantly those related to lidar and data collection. Christian’s vast project experience includes work on major environmental restoration projects, construction surveys, highway design projects, urban and local roads, and more.
