Mobile Mapping Hardware, Software and Datasets
A list of Mobile Mapping Hardware, Software and Datasets
24 January 2022, by Mario Sabatino RiontinoAsk a question
Mobile Mapping is the process of collecting geospatial data - images, point cloud, GPS, etc. - using vehicles such as cars, drones, boats, trains, or planes. Its applications range over several use-cases for public and private organizations such as road/rail networks, street asset management, etc.
With this article, we intend to create an introductory list of hardware and software providers that you might choose from, as well as some sample datasets.
Let us know if you want to list your company as well.
List of Mobile Mapping Systems (MMS)
The following list gathers in random order some of the well-known pre and post-processing software to handle mobile mapping data.
- Orbit GT
- Leica Cyclone REGISTER 360
- Trimble Business Center
- NavVis IVION
- 3DT Scanfly
Whereas you store or share images that contain faces and license plates, you should blur them to comply with the major data protection laws (GDPR, CCPA, etc). For more information, check this checklist of things you need to consider when starting with the blurring of panorama and planar images.
