Mobile Mapping is the technology of installing a mapping system on a vehicle (car, boat, ATV) to map densely built up urban areas. The mapping system employs an imaging system, GPS and IMU to orient the imagery to known coordinates. The system covers the target area with 3D laser points which are converted to accurate visual representations of the target.
These systems are effective in areas where airborne acquisition has limitations, such as in dense urban areas where aerial imagery must look directly downward. They are also valuable in that they can acquire imagery in the exactly location desired.
The most common applications are urban planning, utilities management, waterway mapping, road management and street features mapping.
