From Topcon comes a sophisticated mapping system
Topcon's new mapping system offers high functionality
Topcon Europe Positioning says that its new IP-S2 Compact+ package is an innovative mobile mapping system that can accurately measure objects even in adverse weather conditions and enclosed job sites such as tunnels and mines. This replaces the earlier Topcon’s IP-S2 system, launched in 2009. The new vehicle-mounted system has improved scanner orientation to optimise visibility of roadside assets and is packaged in an affordable, compact system that fits on a car or truck. It offers full-colour, high-resolution, high-density point clouds and these can increase efficiencies in GIS asset management such as utilities, and transportation work such as roads, highways, tunnels, and overpasses. The Compact+ system is available in two configurations: a three-scanner standard model or a five-scanner system. The three-scanner gives a 360° vertical field of view. The five-scanner system increases cloud density, minimises scanning shades, and collects 150,000 points per second with a range of 40-50m. The IP-S2 Compact+ can be purchased with a high accuracy commercial grade or a tactical grade IMU. The commercial grade IMU is a non-ITAR restricted device without export control. According to Topcon, the Compact+ system is easy to use and can be used in a variety of applications, while it provides high accuracy data and dynamic imaging for any mapping project.
