Hand-held Mobile Mapping

Hand-held mobile mapping using SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation And Mapping) based technology is a highly effective way to capture and map the world around you. Using SLAM technology makes it possible to simply walk through an environment and build a digital map as you go, saving time and money and can be over 10-times faster at acquiring data than traditional terrestrial laser scanning.

This streetscape sample was captured using the GeoSLAM – ZEB Locate in walking mode and took less than 10-minutes. The sample was run through a conventional data processing workflow that included cleaning and sub-sampling, yet still contains >3 million points and clearly represents the environment that was captured.

With a range of 100m, the ZEB Locate is great for outdoor use including spaces where features are positioned further apart explained Carlos Gonzalez, Founder and Managing Director at Caroni Geospatial. Caroni identified the need to make businesses work more effectively through innovative use of spatial technologies identifying the potential of SLAM technology and how it can add value to different stakeholders and industries.  

 The ability to capture and process the data quickly and effectively is amplified by the power of PointShare+ which enables the data to be uploaded and stored rapidly and then immediately shared with customers and stakeholders alike, supporting a swift visualisation and analysis review and feedback cycle.
