Moble Mapping System (MMS) related software

Post by mzhoum » Fri Feb 15, 2013 2:05 pm

We are trying to do the railroad mobile mapping project. In the system, we use Faro Focus 3D scanner plus several cameras that are all equipped on a moble vhiecal. We are looking for some mature software that can be used for coordinates calibration and integration by processing data between point-cloud by laser-scanner and image/video by camera into the same space coordinate. Appreciate help.

Hey Michael,

The only packages I'm aware of that may work are QINSy by QPS which was originally used for hydrographic purposes and is now used by MDL for the Dynascan. It can also be used to control Riegl instruments for mobile applications.

The other option is Riegl's RiACQUIRE and the host of other packages they have for managing and dealing with mobile and aerial LIDAR data.

Best of luck,

Hello Michael

We would agree with Chris, QINSy is the software that we are using to process our Mobile Mapping survey data from using the Sabre System. The system uses the FARO X330, twin Trimble GPS, IMU and also has a Ladybug5 360 degree camera. We're getting some fantastic results from it coupled with the ability to use our own FARO scanners - not sure there is a cheaper alternative on the market??

We're currently covering the UK and Irish market but have started to provide services overseas as well now as the system is highly portable. Contact us for enquiries and quotations on your project.
