36 Year Anniversary
Looking back, a lot has changed. The people, technology, and places are all different but one thing that remains the same is our innovative spirit. Mandli’s inherent drive to push the envelope, see what’s beyond the horizon, and make it a reality is a key characteristic of what has made this company grow for 36 years. We believe that change is the only constant, and the best way to weather the storm of time, is to constantly change with it. We have made innovation a part of our DNA, and are proud to hold the position we do in our industry.

We could not have made it this far without the hard work and dedication of some amazing people over the years. Some of this company’s finest moments were born out of long hours and hard work. We are forever grateful for everyone who has been a part of this long journey and can’t wait to continue it with all those still with us.

The future of this company is a bright one, and new technologies are taking us to exciting new places. We will continue to revolutionize the world around us because we don’t know any other way to exist. From humble beginnings, we enjoy looking back at our story and can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds. 

Thank You,
The Mandli Family

Mandli Applications

Urban Modeling

Mandli's LiDAR data collection system is an excellent tool for providing accurate models of urban areas. These models can be used to plan improvements, inventory assets, and evaluate civil concerns.

Asset Inventory

Mandli's LIDAR, imaging, and positional data is used to extract relevant assets from collected highway data. All assets can be referenced to the GPS and right-of-way imaging data.

Intersection Modeling

Railroad and street intersections can be some of the most dangerous areas on the road. Using our LiDAR and imaging systems, Mandli reproduces realistic and accurate representations of these intersections.

Asset Encroachment

Power lines are often a difficult, time consuming, and hazardous asset to inventory manually. Power lines and surrounding vegetation can be automatically catalogued with Mandli's LiDAR data collection system.

Right-of-Way Imaging

Mandli's right-of-way imaging system is capable of recording digital images and data in a variety of weather, speed, and lighting conditions. The imaging software controls data collection with real-time image viewing, camera controls, GPS data, route setup and management features, and DMI calibration and operation.

Curve and Grade

Mandli's positional system uses differential GPS and an inertial measurement unit (IMU) to extrapolate road geometry such as curve, grade, and cross-slope. The vertical grade (slope) and horizontal grade (cross-slope) are standard outputs from Mandli’s POS LV system.
