Road inventories

Infraestructures and Transport. Roads
General description and service phases

Customers may obtain a tool to locate, manage and integrate or update data on linear and isolated elements with inventories.

To do so, it is essential to create updated and precision reference cartography of all of the elements comprising a road network.

The information obtained will be a useful and flexible tool for decision making involving roads, to improve public road services and achieve better citizen satisfaction. Moreover, this tool will enable decision making for plans and road and highway projects.

Service phases:

Data capture using Mobile Mapping technology to obtain a 3D cloud point and 360º images

A road inventory based on cartography generated with the cloud points obtained from surveying.

A conventional road inventory obtained from an image, which does not include cartography creation.

Technology used and main advantages

The technology used for road inventories is our Mobile Mapping system, which is pioneer in the capture of massive and dynamic spatial information.

The equipment is mounted on any type of vehicle that allows anchoring. It travels as a conventional vehicle from 5 km/h to 100 km/h, depending on the project needs.

The measurement equipment is comprised of two high-precision laser positioning sensors as well as 4 image collection devices, which have been expanded using the Ladybug 5.0 camera to obtain panoramic images.

The data capture process obtains 1,000,000 points/s in a 180 m length on each side of the vehicle as well as 6 images (360º) every 10 m.  It can be modified to suit the job characteristics.

The main characteristic of the system consists of nano-second synchronization between cloud points and the images obtained, guaranteeing the utmost precision.

End products

Some of the main end products include the following:

Precision 3D cartography of all elements considered of interest using specific software.

An inventory of all linear and isolated elements mapped

The production of data sheets on elements of interest with the main characteristics
