The latest mobile mapping system from 3D Laser Mapping

3D Laser Mapping are turning heads this week at Intergeo, as the new ‘StreetMapperIV’ mobile mapping system is launched. StreetMapper first came onto the market in 2004, driven by client demands to survey roads and structures above the road with unparalleled safety, speed and accuracy. What resulted was a first-of-a-kind system from 3D Laser Mapping, paving the way for mobile mapping systems to come. The original StreetMapper system used four Riegl laser scanners and the best commercially available IMU at the time. The technology was a game-changer for its day, but one which needed to be refined to reach the... (read more)

Leica Mobile Mapping Day 2016 - Mobile Mapping Chez Leica

Leica Geosystems mobile mapping day featured the UK release of two new pieces of equipment and a refresh of two others. The day at Milton Keynes was a mix of indoor presentations and outdoor demonstrations, reports Richard Groom. Leica ProScan is a new threewheeled trolley-based scanning system with a P40 scanner, which can be used indoors or outdoors. Position fixing is by total station tracking and IMU both indoors and outdoors. For outdoor work there is in addition a GNSS receiver. What makes this system special is that, when controlled using total-station tracking, it can achieve a pointcloud accuracy of... (read more)

OS: Towards Real-time Mapping

The RICS hosted an event with the snappy title ‘Joint OS/RICS CPD day’ at St George Street in July. Not too many clues in the title but within the packaging was an insight into strategy and innovation at the OS. Innovation was approached from several angles. In a view that was reflected later by Alex Wrottesley, from the GeoVation Hub, Neil Ackroyd, Chief Operating Officer, spoke of a future when OS will be mapping almost in real time. As Wrottesley put it, the time between data capture and use could be reduced from months to seconds. “Change is our currency”... (read more)
