Georgia, USA, 07 May 2007: Leica Geosystems announced the introduction of a new airborne LIDAR system designed specifically for corridor mapping and other large-scale mapping applications. The new system, called the Leica ALS Corridor Mapper, takes advantage of key technology Leica ALS-series Airborne Laser Scanner systems to satisfy the needs of the lower altitude LIDAR mapping market segment.
With the increasing demand for Corridor mapping as a significant new segment within the LIDAR data acquisition market. The ALS Corridor Mapper is expected to provide ideal solutions for new entrants and experienced firms in the market. It is said to satisfy its customers needs with: High point density and high accuracy upto 1000 m AGL… while keeping acquisition costs in line with their needs. The Leica ALS Corridor Mapper has the capability to be enhanced over time, since it is engineered to allow incorporation of the latest MPiA (Multiple Pulses in Air) technology, and can also be upgraded to full Leica ALS50-II specifications. “All these features add up to a system with a long, productive lifetime for the user,” says Ron Roth, Product Manager for Airborne LIDAR at Leica Geosystems’ Airborne Sensors Business Unit.
