When high accuracy is not very important. You could consider to us cost effective off-the-shelf hardware. For instance consumer graded spherical camera’s. Van Den Herik choose to work with the GoPro...
Metrocubico needed to capture 6000KM of street level imagery in Brazil. This is not very difficult and there is a wide variety of mobile mapping solutions out in the market who could do this. But none of them where matching the preconditions of MetroCubico.
MetrcoCubico is very ambitious and they foresee a grow in their capturing fleet including extra needed mobile mapping sets. More important was the price tag of the system, the scalability and the use of off-the-shelf hardware.
In this particular mobile mapping case it was not necessary to have very high accurate GPS positioning.
And of course the need to have proven and very user friendly software to capture and postprocess the imagery. Bringing new staff up to speed and productive as soon as possible is an absolute no-brainer.
Metro Cubico Engineering is a Brazilian based company. They are a true pioneer in the use of Mobile Mapping technology in Brazil. There focus is gathering and the preparation of of survey information for engineering studies and projects.
Idea & Impact
They needed a mobile mapping solution that:
- Is very user friendly & cost effective
- uses of off-the-shelf hardware
The Horus starter kit is the solution that ticks all the boxes.
With a very low initial investment of just EUR 2.750,- per system (including the needed hardware & software) they were able to start capturing in just days!
The Horus Geo Suite makes the GoPro Fusion 360 suitable for mobile mapping and asset management purposes.
