GeoShack Offers High Density Mobile Mapping System

Dallas, TX – August 28, 2011 – GeoShack North America, Inc. is now offering Integrated High Definition 3D Mobile Mapping system and services with Topcon’s IP-S2 High Definition Mobile Mapper fully integrated positioning and data collection solution for land based vehicles.

Topcon’s IP-S2 HD Mobile Mapping System overcomes the challenges of mapping linear features to a high level. Accurate vehicle positions are obtained using three redundant technologies: a dual frequency GNSS receiver establishes a geospatial position; an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) tracks vehicle posse; and connection to external wheel encoders obtains odometry information. These three technologies work together to sustain a highly accurate 3D position for the vehicle even in locations where satellite signals can be blocked by obstructions such as buildings, bridges, or tree lines.

The IP-S2 HD Mapper provides fast, high level detail, high density data and dynamic imaging for any linear mapping project. The vehicle-mounted system collects data at normal roadway travel speeds. Safety is improved by removing data collection personnel from vehicular travel areas.

IP-S2 HD Mapper Features:
• High Density, Long Range LiDAR sensor for ultimate visual detail
• 1.3 million points per second at a range of 100 meters
• High Accuracy IMU and DMI Odometry for positional accuracy and reliability
• Geo-referenced, Time-Stamped, Point Clouds and Imagery
• 360 Camera for Spherical Image Capture

Applications Include:
• Roadway Asset Management
• Power Transmission and Distribution
• Telecommunications
• Pipelines
• Railways
• Homeland Security
• Disaster Management
