POLEdata® Software is our platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution for viewing collected 3D LiDAR point cloud data, panoramic imagery and GIS data. enables easy viewing of imagery, GIS data and the LiDAR as a virtual “windshield survey.” For the life-cycle of a project, allows a single, accurate view for design and construction of outside plant projects.® (PaaS) Solution is our platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution for viewing our collected 3D LiDAR point cloud data, panoramic imagery and data extraction products. enables customers to see both the imagery and the LiDAR as a virtual “windshield survey” while overlaying any GIS or CAD data of utility poles and their attachments. For the life-cycle of a project, allows both the pole owner, its workforce and OTMR and design-build contractors to have a single, accurate view of the project.


iUSBridges is a geographic information system (GIS)-based app that allows users to locate nearby bridges, explore details of those bridges, save information on favorite bridges and share feedback.

iUSBridges uses data retrieved from the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) National Bridge Inventory. State departments of transportation provide updated bridge information on a cyclical basis to the FHWA.

Michael Baker designed the application for engineers, department of transportation officials, politicians and hobbyists. The iUSBridges app is free through the App Store. A professional edition is also available.
