StreetMapper Bridges the Highways Survey Gap

Terrametrix LLC, an Omaha based survey technology company, is using StreetMapper, the world’s most accurate mobile mapping system, to survey more than 7,000 bridges in California. Consulting to Caltrans, the California Department of Transportation, Terrametrix is collecting survey grade measurements using vehicle mounted lasers. By using the StreetMapper system Terremetrix is able to capture as built data of existing infrastructure at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional survey methods. “The StreetMapper technology offers proven, survey grade accuracies with final positional accuracies of better than 0.03’ with appropriate survey control,” commented Michael R. Frecks, Terrametrix, LLC President. “Relative positional accuracies of better than 0.02’ in raw data make StreetMapper a very useful tool for bridge height surveys.”...

StreetMapper Aids Abnormal Load Navigation

The transportation of abnormal loads on UK roads causes average delays per vehicle of 15-25 minutes and the resulting congestion can cost up to a £1600 ($2500) per mile. Planning of suitable routes is now being made easier following a development by IGI & 3D Laser Mapping. Using StreetMapper – a mobile laser mapping system – together with advanced Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, it is possible to create real world 3D visualisations of proposed routes modelling the clearance envelope of the vehicle and its proximity to possible obstructions. The StreetMapper ‘Clearance Detection Module’ simulates the abnormal loads’ progress along the route identifying height and width restrictions and highlighting potential collision objects...
