High-performance Mobile Mapping System for Forest Road Mapping

Back in 2012, Siteco – an Italian developer of Lidar mapping systems – won the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region tender in its home country by designing and developing a special model of Road-Scanner, a flexible system that can be installed on pickups and quads. The Forest Operational Survey Department wanted to enable its engineering staff to catalogue and update the forest roads in order to develop maintenance programmes and create an inventory of the road network. To achieve this, it issued a tender for the supply of a very versatile mobile mapping system (MMS) that would allow the organisation to update its system dynamically. The implementation...
