What is 3D mapping used for?

4 March 2021
Category: UAV & Aerial mapping

The term “3D mapping” is a cover all expression for lots of different applications. A quick Google search returns articles about projection mapping, photogrammetry and everything in between. At KOREC we typically use the term to refer to the output from our mobile mapping family of solutions, which includes the Trimble MX7 and MX9 amongst others. These sophisticated LiDAR devices capture 3D data from a moving vehicle which produces results via something called a point cloud. These points make up a 3D image (or “cloud”) representing the environment that has been scanned and can be used to manage assets, build 3D models, and make precise measurements to name just a few applications.
