India: StreetMapper is being deployed to laser map city centres and transportation networks across India. The mobile laser mapping system StreetMapper has been purchased by Geokno, a technology company specialising in GIS. StreetMapper was selected for its accuracy, reliability and quality of support and service from developer 3D Laser Mapping. The system will be immediately deployed on two highway projects before being showcased for the first time ever in India at the India Geospatial Forum taking place at the Hyderabad International Convention Centre from the 5 to 7 February 2014.
“India is making significant investment to improve its physical infrastructure, which is why we are applying the very latest and best mobile mapping technology. One of our primary requirements, and fundamental to the selection of the StreetMapper system, was the requirement for engineering grade survey data. We also needed to be confident in the field performance and reliability of the system to minimise downtime,” said Dr Bharat Lohani, Director and Mr Balaji Nagarajan CEO of Geokno Indian (A GMR Group Company).
