As 3D scanning technologies for mobile mapping have evolved, their applications have expanded – including the scanning of highways and other horizontal infrastructure. However, each scan of a section of roadway presents an incredible challenge: how to handle the massive amounts of data generated – and how to extract usable, relevant information from them.
Featured Case Study
Using hands-free mobile scanning with the NavVis VLX system, virtual reality solution provider eSite has developed unique workflows to aid engineers working on nuclear decommissioning projects. Combining rapid reality capture with virtual reality, eSite has redefined what is possible for both safety and efficiency in the nuclear industry.
Having outdated or inaccurate data can not only slow critical services, but even put lives at risk. The Honeywell HGuide team works with its partners and customers to develop systems to meet the needs of broadening applications for mobile mapping – leveraging advanced technologies to solve challenging problems.
By leveraging a combination of existing data and strategically partnering with service providers to collect more imagery and scans of road assets, Allvision is driven to improve highway safety with technology.
A Danish firm used the Trimble X7 to scan thousands of housing units, taking advantage of its automated cloud registration. The resulting 3D models have reduced tenant turnover times for the client, saving many hours and multiple visit for site evaluations and measurements.
