Nottingham, UK– 3D Laser Mapping has been selected to supply its StreetMapper technology as part of a futuristic project to advance mobile mapping, named StratAG. StratAG, based at the University of Ireland, brings together researchers from across Ireland and is focused around the generic theme of Geospatial Monitoring and Early Warning.
Using Riegl laser scanners supplied by 3D Laser Mapping, StratAG are designing a new generation mobile mapping system, incorporating multispectral cameras, which will be used for tasks including safety risk assessment and environmental impact of road networks, 3D city modelling and environmental monitoring including landslide and flooding.
The Riegl VQ-250 laser scanner has been specifically designed for the rapid 3D mapping of highways, runways, railways, infrastructure and buildings. Already proven within the world’s most accurate mobile mapping system StreetMapper, it is a very high speed, non contact profile measuring system using a narrow infrared laser beam and fast line scanning mechanism to deliver a 360-degree field of view with high precision mapping to a range of 300 metres.
