Mobile mapping refers to the collection of geospatial data using mapping sensors mounted on moving platforms such as cars, marine vessels or airplanes.
Mobile mapping systems utilize GNSS technology combined with Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) to enable the rapid and accurate calculation of continuous 3D position, velocity and attitude (roll, pitch and yaw). It is critical that all GNSS position and INS attitude data is time synchronized to the mapping sensors to enable the direct and precise mapping of landscapes, objects or features.
Advantage of operating latest mobile mapping technology allow us to provide our clients with a cost effective way to undertake large scale surveys in short timescales. We have experience in carrying out mobile mapping surveys to collect point cloud data, 360° photography, high definition video and thermal imagery for route corridors.
Applications for mobile mapping include:
Mobile mapping technologies provide a wealth of advantages over traditional methods, namely:
