Geospatial Corporation Completes Pipeline Mapping Under Savannah River

Geospatial Corporation has announced the completion of the mapping of three pipelines under the Savannah River for an industrial facility in Savannah, Georgia. The project concluded in late August and had a value of approximately $125,000 in revenue to Geospatial. The client, a global industrial corporation, selected Geospatial along with Jacobs Engineering from several companies to perform the technical task of mapping one effluent waste pipeline and two bundled high-voltage conduits, all running underneath the Savannah River. "The project consisted of precision mapping of a 42" wastewater line and a 6" and 10" high-voltage electrical conduit submerged under 50 feet of water and... (read more)

3D Laser Mapper Introduces New Airborne Mapping System

3D Laser Mapping aims to help survey teams to cover more ground in a shorter space of time with a new aerial mapping system. The ROBIN +WINGS airborne Lidar system is an extension of the ROBIN mobile mapping unit which allows survey teams to mount the system to a backpack, vehicle or aircraft. The +WINGS system works with both single-pole and nose helicopter mounts and can be deployed in a range of sectors, including forestry, environmental monitoring and transportation infrastructure mapping. Graham Hunter, managing director at 3D Laser Mapping, explained that ROBIN +WINGS provides surveying teams with higher levels of... (read more)

3D Laser Mapping Launches Automated Stockpile Volume Solution

3D Laser Mapping has announced SiteMonitorSV as the latest offering from its suite of SiteMonitor solutions. The system, which builds upon the proven SiteMonitor4D system, integrates advanced 3D laser scanning technology with simple to use software, enabling stockpiles to be monitored and managed safely through automated cost effective means. SiteMonitorSV provides up to date inventory that reflects current stock levels. Volume measurements require regular surveys of the same area followed by a comparison to a reference plane or surface, which through conventional methods is resource intensive and therefore costly. The automation enabled through the system allows for repetitive daily, weekly... (read more)

GeoCue Brings Survey Grade Mapping to DJI Drones

GeoCue is set to offer survey-grade mapping with their GNSS positioning system for DJI Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire drones that promises to be low cost, and with “minimum ground control.” The Loki kit is self-contained and fully integrated, meaning it includes everything you need to equip your drone with a global positioning system. You will however still need your own base station, but that’s all it takes to achieve centimetre-level positioning. Loki costs $4,995 and includes Septentrio’s AsteRx-m2 multi-frequency, multi-constellation GNSS engine, which offers a whopping 448 hardware channels for locking into satellites for positioning. It also boasts GeoCue’s... (read more)
