First Zebedee 3D Mobile Mapping Project

Australian researchers are using the novel mobile laser 3D mapping system called Zebedee to preserve some of the country’s oldest and most culturally significant heritage sites. The handheld 3D mapping system is developed by CSIRO and can scan an environment as an operator walks through it. The new joint research initiative between CSIRO and The University of Queensland aims to collect detailed 3D maps of historic sites of Moreton Bay. With the assistance of Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services, the research team have collected data from a number of heritage sites including the 19th-century Brisbane River defences at Fort Lytton...

3D Laser Mapping Launches Cityscape Mapper

3D Laser Mapping (United Kingdom) has developed a mobile cityscape mapper that captures highly accurate 3D modelling data of buildings and streets. The development is an enhancement to StreetMapper, the vehicle-mounted laser mapping system that is already well proven in terrain and highway mapping. StreetMapper is a result of a joint venture with German guidance and navigation specialist IGI mbH. The latest developments for ‘architectural surveying' are currently being evaluated with cityscape mapping projects underway with universities in Germany.            IGI have upgraded their TERRAControl navigation system specially for city modelling applications where there is reduced GPS visibility due to...

Mapping the World with 3D Laser Mapping

The British Geological Survey (BGS) is to use a new laser scanner to map volcanoes, glaciers and other natural phenomena. The Riegl VZ-1000 purchased from 3D Laser Mapping will be used around the world to collect data for creating photorealistic fly-throughs, 3D height models and highly accurate area and volume calculations. The BGS uses terrestrial laser scanners from Riegl across its operations because of their flexibility, range and portability. Laser scanning is a tool of modern geoscience and allows unprecedented resolution and accuracy. Remote measurement and monitoring are also essential in many of the dangerous and inhospitable environments BGS operates... (read more)
