Managing transportation networks, whether road, rail, or aviation, is a high-risk proposition. Keeping travelers safe, as well as your crew, is of the upmost importance. But the challenges of managing a network aren’t limited to safety and also including controlling costs, ensuring reliability and boosting efficiencies. As transportation companies look for ways improve on all aspects of transportation infrastructure management, remotely sensing technology such as satellite, UAS, and LiDAR data combined with big data analytics is being looked at to improve safety, reduce expenses, and make better decisions.
Harris Geospatial delivers advanced analysis solutions that utilitize geospatial imagery and data to help better manage transportation networks and infrastructure. Whether it’s inspecting the condition of rail ties, identifying missing attachments on bridges, or monitoring road weather conditions, we deliver technology that helps you manage data, discover answers, and make more effective decisions. For nearly 30 years, Harris Geospatial Solutions has been exclusively focused on leveraging remotely sensed data to solve some of the most challenging problems in the industry. Today, Harris is firmly established as the industry leader in image science, and with the ever-increasing availability of geospatial data, transportation agencies rely on Harris for solutions that deliver critical network insights.

How Can We Help?
Harris provides solutions to transportation companies that range from data collection, to data storage and management, to processing and analyzing data, to delivering those critical insights to the right people, at the right time, in the right place. We can deliver an end-to-end solution or integrate any of these offerings into an existing system.
Remotely sensed imagery and data are being used to augment ground-based inspection techniques for transportation infrastructure. By delivering high-resolution visual information about the condition of infrastructure, imagery can improve the safety of inspections, provide the ability to prioritize repairs, and reduce overall management costs.
DOTs are using the scientifically proven analytics in ENVI® to extract information from geospatial imagery and LiDAR data to plan and design infrastructure, as well as to monitor and maintain roads, bridges and tunnels to ensure the safe movement of people and goods.
Helios® weather analytics for safety & mobility provide fast and accurate local ground weather intelligence to assist organizations with real-time decision making. As a real-time ground “weather-observer” which analyzes content from thousands of existing public and private video cameras, Helios provides immediate confirmation of ground weather condition changes at a detailed local level. Helios® delivers “ground-truth” weather conditions and its impacts on critical infrastructure conditions state using machine learning analytics to extract relevant data from existing terrestrial CCTV camera networks.
Using traditional remote sensing techniques, we can provide additional insights along the rail corridor or the rail yards including vegetation encroachment, post disaster management (flood extent, subsidence mapping), and engineering focused applications (water runoff, new construction near track corridor with impervious surfaces).
We’ve leveraged our scientifically vetted ENVI algorithms for change detection to tailor a solution that works with UAS collected, Line Scanned, and other data and imagery that can identify critical changes to the rail line in an automated way that lets Engineers focus their time on areas that need maintenance ASAP.
Combine our deep learning technology with modalities like terrestrial LiDAR or aerial collected imagery to help identify, tag, and locate assets along the rail corridor including switches, power poles, signals, and cabinets.

Whether you're flying a drone, an airplane, or looking to accurately map airports or train pilots to fly, Harris Geospatial has products and solutions to meet your needs.
Helios® can be used to conduct visibility analysis for flight service information and delivered to pilots. Furthermore, Helios® analytics can be used to conduct windsock analysis by monitoring and detecting movement change of airfield windsocks.
The Federal Aviation Administration has exclusive authority over the use of airspace in the United States, including the airspace used by UAVs. If you are using a UAV as either a commercial operator and or a government operator to capture imagery, PrecisionPass lets you know if the data captured by your drone meets the required criteria or if it needs to be collected again. The immediate feedback provided by PrecisionPass reduces the risk of failures during the analysis stage, all but eliminating the need to re-fly a mission, so business needs are met in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
Automate and Scale Network Management with AMPlify
Harris’ transportation asset management platform (AMPlify) ingests all types of imagery, video, LiDAR and other forms of remotely sensed data to analyze transportation infrastructure. AMPlify lets users in the field or in an operations center quickly locate critical intelligence with advanced discovery and filtering capabilities so they can make informed decisions with a high degree of confidence.
Harris understands the requirements around operations integration and has developed AMPlify to work seamlessly with other operational systems such as GIS, work management, and asset inventory.
