The Department of Geological Sciences at San Diego State University (SDSU) has teamed with Geodetics Inc. , a manufacturer of integrated mobile mapping systems that utilize passive and active vision sensors (LiDAR/Camera), to research the San Andreas Fault in southern California. The study scanned the fault with Geodetics’ drone-based Geo-MMS LiDAR/Camera mapping system that uses Velodyne LiDAR technology and an RGB camera to deliver accurate 3D data.

The research is focusing on evaluating both past large slip events (earthquakes) and aseismic creep (also known as “silent earthquakes”),...
