For large scale, high accuracy data collection, look to Trimble’s vehicle-mounted spatial imaging systems, perfect for highway & large area asset surveys.
GeoSLAM’s handheld mobile mapping systems are ideal for indoor, underground or GNSS-deprived locations – with no reliance on GNSS signals to operate. 3D models can be built in just minutes whilst you walk, with these fast, handheld devices.
LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth. A continuously rotating LiDAR system sends thousands of laser pulses every second which collide with the surrounding objects and reflect back creating a 3D representation by measuring the speed of light and the distance covered by it. This helps to determine the vehicle’s position with other surrounding objects.
As well as being a useful component in mobile mapping systems, LiDAR technology will also be key to the development of autonomous vehicles.
A mobile mapping system enables the collection of 3D geospatial information from the safety of a vehicle on land, sea or rail. Systems range in sophistication from a more basic system such as KOREC’s KlearView 360 which comprises a 360deg vehicle mounted camera, fully hosted portal and asset inspection app which is ideal for pavement or roadside asset inspections to a top of the range system such as the Trimble MX9 which typically mounts on the roof of a vehicle and rapidly captures laser scans and images – both panoramic and multi-angle – as you drive.
The advantages of mobile mapping systems are many and include the provision of a rich dataset with a very high data density for close range acquisition so nothing is missed. They are ideal for covering larger lengths of road that it would not be cost-effective to survey using traditional methods and above all remove surveyor from working in time pressurised environments or where safety maybe compromised such as on live roads. No active traffic management is required and data is collected at traffic speeds.
LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection and Ranging, is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth. Mobile LiDAR systems are frequently used for 3D mapping applications along various corridors because of their extreme ease in capturing comprehensive high-resolution 3D topographic data at normal speeds. Because of this they are often a part of a more complex system, for example, Trimble’s MX9 Mobil Mapping system which combines a vehicle-mounted mobile LiDAR system, GNSS, multi-camera imaging and field software. This combination delivers efficient, precise and high-volume data capture for a broad range of mobile mapping applications such as road surveys, topographic mapping, 3D-modeling and asset management.
KOREC provides a range of handheld, mobile and vehicle-mounted mobile mapping systems for a range of applications, including highway corridor mapping, asset management, manhole or utility mapping, underground scanning, and more.
For large scale, very high point cloud density and image rich mapping missions, look to the vehicle mounted Trimble MX9. Featuring advanced Trimble GNSS and inertial technology, allowing you to drive at highway speeds to rapidly capture high accuracy 3D spatial data, as well as high resolution panoramic and multi-angle images.
For asset management, the highly portable Trimble MX7 imaging system is designed to capture 360 degree, georeferenced imagery which can then be visualised, interpreted and integrated into a GIS system. Ideal for asset managers who need to build complete inventories for road networks, bridges, railways, highways, and airport infrastructure.
For a complete, end-to-end vehicle based inspection system & issue management, take a look at our KlearView 360 solution. Featuring a 360 degree panoramic camera, simply mount the system on your vehicle roof, fire up the asset inspection K-Mobile app and begin your mapping mission. Ideal for pavement inspection, road damage, street furniture, and more. View, analyse and create reports easily back in the office, on the K-Portal GIS database system, and issue work management instructions to your mobile workforce with the app.
For remote, hard to reach or even underground environments, we stock the range of handheld mobile mapping solutions from GeoSLAM. Whether capturing longer range (100m) outdoor data with the ZEB-Horizon, real-time processing with the ZEB-REVO RT (to see the point cloud build up before your eyes) or simple, fast and easy scanning with the ZEB-Go, we have a range of handheld scanners to suit your application.
