A few things we’re great at

The Fulcrum International’s sister company, Scanning Services of America, Inc., provides consulting for precision LiDAR scanning, hyperspectral scanning, photogrammetry and mapping throughout the U.S. 

3D and hyper-spectral scanning has come a long way in the past 15 years and how has become much more affordable and easier to use for projects during study, planning, design, construction, renovation, restoration, and large scale environmental work. 

We collaborate with government entities, private industry, engineers, contractors and scientists to help form the RIGHT TEAM, with the RIGHT EQUIPMENT for the specific needs of your mission. SSA can then help your team with project planning and scheduling, dashboard concepts, and reporting mechanisms.



Contractors & Scientists


High precision Lidar applications

  • Scan state and national parks to create accurate maps
  • Scan shallow water bodies and coastlines to detect ecosystem changes
  • Create 3D image of mining operations for engineers and do quantities
  • Scan the coastal areas prior to hurricane season to track erosion or create as-builts for FEMA and insurance purposes
  • Scan areas after a disaster to assist in recovery
  • Provide periodic scans of bridges or tunnels to detect changes or flows
  • Map the entire footprint of an airport to be used in pavement, lighting, signage and drainage evaluations
  • Scan areas with historic buildings prior to infrastructure projects to calculate building “hardness” and avoid costly damages
  • Perform interval scans following fires or other environmental disruptions to monitor regrowth/restoration
  • Scan sinkholes to understand the dimensions of the hole and track progression.
