Mobile Mapping

Mobile mapping system Collecting geospatial data from a moving platform is known as ‘mobile mapping’. Mobile mapping systems are often equipped with a variety of photographic, radar, Lidar or other types of remote sensing systems. GIM International has picked a selection of the best mobile mapping stories, ranging from mobile mapping using cars to other platforms such as a backpack.
