Video box Mobile road mapping
In Switzerland, terra® is the number one provider of mobile mapping services.
Mobile mapping refers to the mobile collection of data and the surveying of roads, motorways, railway infrastructures and bodies of water. Using a variety of sensors, we collect spatial data and coordinates from a mobile measurement platform.
terra® offers the largest and most comprehensive range of mobile mapping services in Switzerland and is actively involved in international projects. We are mapping national, federal, state and local roads and rail systems in Switzerland and Europe.
Railway operators, public works departments and road maintenance officials rely on our services to improve their infrastructure management.
We use dedicated sensors that are best suited for the task at hand and may recommend a variety of sensor combinations based on the project specifications. Entire roads can be mapped on the fly, including surface, condition and substructure, using a combination of 3D laser scanners and georadar equipment.
Areas of Expertise
Roads, bridges, tunnels, civil engineering structures and overhead contact lines can be quickly and efficiently mapped in three dimensions with two 3D laser scanners.
Mobile mapping of rail infrastructures provides valuable information about the condition of the tracks, track beds and overhead lines.
In term of hydrographic surveying, we offer river profiling and lake bed mapping.
Bridges and other building structures can be mapped from the water as well.
We use panoramic cameras to create 360 degree picture and video documentations.
Our tCrack tunnel system automatically detects cracks in tunnel formworks.
Highly sensitive special cameras are used to map and document the condition of road surfaces and airport runways.
We successfully use mobile mapping even in hard-to-reach areas, such as narrow canals.
Our mobile mapping services provide a solid foundation for identifying and evaluating extensive deformations of large scale objects, for example, roads, bridges or retaining walls.
We achieve high single point accuracy under difficult conditions in canals or tunnels where GPS signals are unavailable.
Our 3D data processing centre delivers customised, modular results.
