Frequently Asked Questions

Equator is mapping and design software with thousands of built-in data sets.  Equator is used by civil engineers, architects, and construction professionals around the world to find, build, and share maps and designs instantly.

What is LiDAR? LiDAR is Light Detection and Ranging technology.  This technology uses a pulsed laser to measure distances from the laser to a surface.  LiDAR is often used for remote sensing applications, for example, measuring the distance to the Earth’s surface for elevation mapping.

Equator indexes data from open data portals around the world.  Many data sets are pulled in automatically through APIs and others are added by our team of GIS experts and geospatial developers.

Click the button at the top of the screen that says “LiDAR Data.” It will take you to the Equator platform where you can create a new account. You can try creating a site and adding contours, point clouds, or DEMs to your site for free.

Equator LDI stands for Equator Land Development Intelligence. It is a solution designed for civil engineering firms that uses artificial intelligence (AI), natural language processing, LiDAR, and a customer’s own content library to create high-quality proposals, documents, and reports based on user input and specific guidelines.

We are currently in the pilot stage of Equator LDI. Are you interested in learning more about Equator LDI or being involved in the pilot stage? Schedule a call with Equator Studios to learn more.
