Mobile Mapping

3D Mobile Mapping is the newest technology used to collect mass quantities of terrestrial LiDAR at both mapping grade and survey grade accuracies. The concept of mounting two 3D lasers, 4 to 6 cameras, a military grade IMU and two GPS receivers to a vehicle and collecting continuous point data clouds at highway speeds provides the most efficient and accurate method of data collection along highways, secondary roads, beaches and other routes permitting vehicle access.

This technology allows for automated data/asset extraction of:
