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.
