Mass data collection (mobile mapping, aerial mapping, UAV mapping, lidar scanning, 3D laser scanning) is a process where the world around us is captured in millions of points in 3D space. Subsequently, data is imported into 3D mapping or simulation software to create a 3D model for planning, design, construction or maintenance work.
The lidar scanner is mounted on the roof of the car and scanned by traffic flow. Usually it is used for big linear infrastructure objects like city scanning or individual engineering objects.
City scanning is usually performed to collect information along the city streets (buildings, pavements, streets, signs, trees, etc. ) for maintenance, urban planning, designing or reconstruction.
Measuring engineering objects (streets, bridges, buildings, roads, etc) takes a lot of time. 3D laser scanner captures over a million points per second no matter what the complexity of the objects are, therefore all the points are easily measurable.
In addition to that, panoramic photos and connection to your object data remotely are available.
Mobile Scan System:
- scan range up to 238m;
- panoramic pictures;
- 1,016 million points/sec;
- geometric precision 0.1 – 3mm;
UAV lidar mapping
The lidar scanner is mounted on the drone and are ideally suited for small areas (<10 km² or 100 km linear), hard to access zones and when accuracy range of 2.5 – 15 cm is enough.
