The company, in addition to other logistical equipment, has three self-mapping systems with which the capture, georeferencing and management of terrestrial photographs is achieved, in order to be able to update the cartographic backgrounds of large areas that are part of Geographic Information Systems, in a short period of time.
In detail, the three systems are:
1. On-board system of two conventional digital cameras (indicative, CANON D1000), which are placed in positions suitable for photography parallel to the course of the vehicle, and take photos in the direction of movement and its opposite.
2. On-board system of two FlyCapture camcorders mounted on a specially designed carrier, of known geometry, which makes it possible to take stereoscopic pairs of photographs, which can be used to extract measurement information through photogrammetric methods.
3. Upcoming spherical (panoramic, 360 o ) video capture system Ladybug’s Pointgrey , with automatic GPS geotagging for stored spherical images, which makes it possible to capture spherical images that reflect the entire surroundings of the camera in high resolution.
