StreetMapper Set to Revolutionise Surveying in China

3D Laser Mapping and IGI have delivered the first laser based mobile mapping system to China. Utilising the latest laser scanning technology to achieve sub centimetre accurate measurements at normal traffic speeds StreetMapper has already demonstrated its potential in a variety of projects. These include the high precision mapping of the Peking University Campus, 3D modelling of road tunnels in Beijing together with highway surveying for road construction and network planning...

StreetMapper 360 Maps Bournemouth in 3D

Ordnance Survey has unveiled an incredibly detailed and accurate 3D map of the English seaside resort of Bournemouth. Ordnance Survey (OS) captured every square metre of the town centre using a combination of land-based laser scanning including the mobile mapping system StreetMapper 360 and aerial laser surveying. Created from 700 million individual laser point measurements, the 3D map could represent the future of mapping and illustrates how the work of the national mapping agency could change with the adoption of laser scanning technology...

Revolution in Highway Surveying

It's a familiar sight: roads are closed due to road works and surveyors doing road measurements. Besides causing traffic delays, these surveys are costly - traffic has to be managed and employees brought in to work night shifts. Add to this, the pressure to deliver new designs as quickly as possible, and the impact this has on accuracy down the line. Now, Dutch surveying specialist Geomaat has completed pre-construction surveys without the need for road closures by using the StreetMapper 360 system from 3D Laser Mapping and IGI. The measurements were taken with sub-centimetre accuracy while travelling at normal traffic speeds...

Mobile Laser Scanning with 1cm Accuracy

Mobile mapping system StreetMapper has achieved accuracies of better than 1cm on a Californian test area specifically designed to evaluate mobile laser scanning systems. Operated by Terrametix and designed by Nottingham-based 3D Laser Mapping together with IGI, the StreetMapper system was put through its paces on a stretch of highway in San Diego. The route was chosen by the Californian Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to help companies advance mobile laser scanning technology through independent evaluation against known control points...
