Today’s surveyors have a wide variety of high-tech tools at their disposal, and one of the most powerful technologies to emerge in the last 10 years is the mobile mapping system. Mobile mapping eliminates disruptions to the motoring public and removes surveyors from harm’s way.

Woolpert’s unique system combines Optech’s latest-generation lidar units with four digital cameras and an Applanix 420 Position and Orientation System (POS), mountable on a cargo van, ATV, boat or even rail car.

At a collection rate of one million points per second, the system merges the speed of airborne mapping with the precision of terrestrial surveying to produce high-precision, 3D data.
