Description

Being perfectly suited for corridor mapping applications the platform consists of a RIEGL VUX-240 airborne laser scanner, three Sony Alpha high-resolution digital cameras and a high-end IMU/GNSS system. The airborne laser scanner's high effective repetition rate of 1.5 million measurements on the ground and the oblique orientation of the cameras (Forward/Nadir/Backward) especially account for the specifics of power line mapping applications, but also make it a perfect tool for high-density city mapping at altitudes of up to 1200m.
