Mobile Mapping

Our expertise in geospatial analysis and data visualisation allows us to deliver accurate and comprehensive mapping services tailored to your specific requirements.

What is Mobile Mapping?

Mobile mapping refers to the process of collecting geospatial data using specialised mapping systems mounted on vehicles. This technology allows for the creation of detailed and up-to-date maps, navigation systems, and location-based services. Mobile mapping systems typically integrate various sensors and technologies to capture accurate and relevant data about the environment.

Mobile mapping systems have transformed vehicles into powerful data collection platforms. Equipped with a combination of GPS, LiDAR, cameras, and other sensors, they capture highly accurate 3D data as they traverse our roads and landscapes.

Key components of mobile mapping include:

GPS (Global Positioning System: GPS technology is used to determine the precise location of the mobile device or mapping system. This helps in accurately geo-referencing the collected data.

IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit: An IMU measures the device’s acceleration and rotation rates, providing information about its movement and orientation. This data helps correct positioning errors and enhance the accuracy of the mapping process.

Cameras and Sensors: Mobile mapping systems often incorporate cameras, LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), radar, or other sensors to capture visual and environmental data. These sensors enable the creation of 3D models, identification of objects, and the collection of additional information about the surroundings.

Software: Specialised software processes the data collected by the sensors and generates maps or other geospatial products. This may include feature extraction, object recognition, and data fusion algorithms to enhance the quality of the output.
