Mobile mapping vehicles at ELMF

By on 23 August, 2011
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take a drive in a Mobile Mapping vehicle and learn first-hand about the technology?
As 3D laser scanning vehicles become an ever more frequent sight on our streets following the adoption of mobile mapping by local governments, environmental agencies, surveyors and consumer mapping websites – interest in the vehicles’ capability has surged.
Full access to this technology and more will be on show at the 2nd outing of the European LiDAR Mapping Forum (ELMF) taking place in Salzburg, Austria from 29th – 30th November 2011.
Not only do visitors to ELMF 2011 benefit from an international conference, a supporting exhibition, industry workshops and networking opportunities, but visitors have the opportunity to test drive the various mobile mapping vehicles that will be parked outside the Congress Centre.
One of the vehicles on show will be Optech’s Lynx Mobile Mapper, which is the latest generation in the rapid collection of survey-grade 3D data. Lynx collects engineering/survey-grade LiDAR data with camera imagery over large areas where static sensors are impractical, but where required accuracies and resolution exceed those of airborne technologies.
Other vehicles include MDL’s Dynascan, an entry level system that combines a laser scanning module, GNSS receiver, and inertial navigation sensor all in one rugged pod; 3D Laser Mapping will be demonstrating StreetMapper; the mobile mapping system and the monitoring system SiteMonitor; the IP-S2 Topcon that combines GNSS positioning and inertial measurements with 3D point cloud data and digital imagery; and Sineco SPA (in collaboration with Optech and OGS) who have fine tuned the Lynx Mobile .

The ELMF 2011 conference committee are currently reviewing over 80 abstracts that were submitted following the Call for Papers. The programme will be announced at the beginning of September and updates can be found on the website
