Mobile Mapping

By equipping a vehicle with GNSS, photographic, radar, laser, LiDAR or any number of remote sensing devices, we are able to capture vast amounts of data quickly. With mobile mapping there is no need for expensive traffic management, which causes delays by waiting for permission to close a road. The outputs include GIS data, 2D digital maps or 3D digital models, and georeferenced pictures or videos.

The capture of 3D geospatial data from a moving vehicle platform is made possible by mobile mapping technology. An inertial measurement unit that produces a smoothed vehicle trajectory, to which a 3D point cloud and 360-degree imagery are referred.

Collection of geospatial data is conducted with two surveyors, who will drive the route before work is to commence. This enables them to plan the best route, with the most GPS coverage and to scope out traffic. To ensure the data capture is accurate, various ground control points are placed along the route. By comparing the co-ordinates of the ground control points, the team are able to enhance the accuracy of the point cloud.

The site at Grey Mare Lane has been a huge project that will reinvigorate an area of Manchester and enhance its’ residential neighbourhoods. Powers’ contribution to the planning and layout of the site has been invaluable to us. We have been able to locate and map out the complicated service routes, which has further enabled us to make informed decisions and recommendations on how the site can develop in the longer-term. We have worked with Powers on projects in the past, so we were confident of the company’s capabilities and the quality of the survey results.
