3D Mapping Portal

Agency9 (Sweden) has entered into a partnership with the aerial survey company Slagboom en Peeters in The Netherlands, to deliver a geoportal for which users can view its data products, currently “Geo-Oblique” and Orthophoto in one seamless integrated view. Unlike other portals in the market the user can conveniently see an object from all possible angles and use the data view that is best for the application. Additional data types will be introduced later this year. Adding Oblique Viewer extends the value of the 3DMaps platform as the leading solution for visualisation of 3D geospatial data. The combination of different... (read more)

Column: 3D Mobile Mapping

Over the last few years street-level mobile mapping and reality capturing has quietly become one of the most important geospatial mapping technologies. There are already hundreds of mapping vehicles collecting vast amounts of geospatial data. But what we see today is only the start, believes Stephan Nebiker from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW).   In the future, accurate and dense 3D representations of the urban environment along traffic corridors and within buildings will be captured and created fully automatically and upated regularly if not in real-time. These digital realities will serve a multitude of purposes, including... (read more)

3D Laser Mapping for Waste Monitoring

A laser scanning system is to improve safety of iron ore extraction in South Africa. The Riegl laser scanner forms an integral part of a Waste Spreader Positioning System (WSPS) developed by Stone Three Venture Technology in partnership with Reutech Mining. The WSPS is designed to ensure the safety of machine operators by calculating a safe zone of operation on the mine heap and monitoring the activities of the Waste Spreader within this defined zone.   The Riegl LMS-Z210ii, supplied by 3D Laser Mapping, is a rugged sensor designed for the rapid acquisition of high-quality 3D images in the harshest...

Fugro Buys 3D Mapping Solutions Company

Fugro has completed the acquisition of Roames Asset Services (Roames), based in Brisbane, Australia, from Ergon Energy (Ergon). Roames (previously a services unit within Ergon) specialises in high-resolution mapping services and solutions for the electricity distribution sector. Roames uses airborne sensors to generate accurate 3D models of electric power transmission networks and surrounding vegetation. The data collected through Lidar and digital imagery are processed in a highly automated way. This enables electric utility companies to take preventative measures to cost-effectively review and maintain their infrastructure and to manage vegetation growth.  The current annual revenue of Roames is around EUR7 million....

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 Offers Forensics Workshop

Following the UK launch of a new and innovative hand-held 3D imager, Nottingham-based 3D Laser Mapping has announced a series of workshops designed to promote its benefits. The first workshop in the series is aimed at potential users of the Mantis Vision imager for the forensics sector and will take place on 20 November 2012 in Loughborough, UK. Additional application and market-specific events will be announced shortly. Users do not have to pay to attend the events. “The MVC-F5 is ideally suited to the exacting requirements of users within law enforcement and forensic investigation,” commented event organiser Charlie Whyman from...
