Opportunities on the Move

Mobile scanning offers engineers faster, safer data collection and future jobs. Survey organizations are faced with the challenge of getting transportation-infrastructure projects shovel-ready as soon as possible in compliance with the Obama administration’s $787 billion economic stimulus plan. In the U.S., there are approximately 4 million miles of roads, 600,000 bridges, 20,000 airports and 160,000 miles of rail infrastructure--and, according to the American Society of Civil Engineer’s 2009 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure, much of it is in substandard condition...

3D Laser Mapping's/IGI's StreetMapper to Survey Lithuanian Roads

February 02, 2010 -- The State Enterprise Transport and Road Research Institute in Lithuania has taken delivery of the latest StreetMapper system. Utilising state of the art laser scanning technology to achieve sub centimetre accurate measurements at normal traffic speeds StreetMapper will be used by the Institute’s Road Survey Division. It will be used to help evaluate the condition of the road network, plan road repair and reconstruction projects and provide additional information for economic justification of proposed works. The StreetMapper system, developed by 3D Laser Mapping and IGI, was supplied by Vilnius based Nota Bene distributors of StreetMapper for the Baltic region...

Points of Progress

Mobile scanning drives Los Angeles closer to a new era of economic development. When the Community Redevelopment Agency of the City of Los Angeles (CRA/LA) set out in early 2009 to develop a new pedestrian-friendly and efficient transit corridor that would link the city’s southern region with downtown, the management team had a clear vision for what it hoped to accomplish. A public agency promoting community growth and prosperity, CRA/LA has worked with numerous private investors to revitalize neglected communities in the region. The challenge for the management team, as always, was conveying its vision to investors and the communities that would be affected by the development work. Wouldn’t it be nice if the original surveys could somehow capture enough details about the corridor to make it easy for all of the stakeholders to visualize the possibilities?...

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...
