Urban Inventory

Desarrollo territorial y urbano
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 city.

The information obtained will be a useful and flexible tool for management and decision making within town councils to improve their public road services and achieve better citizen satisfaction. Moreover, this tool will enable decision making for plans, studies and urban projects.

Service phases:

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

An inventory of elements based on cartography generated with the cloud points obtained from surveying.

An inventory of isolated and/or linear elements obtained from an image, which does not include cartography creation.

Technology used and main advantages

The technology used to obtain data varies greatly as it mainly depends on the characteristics of the job to be done and the possibilities of access, acquisition time and necessary precision.

Many times, the best solution consists of the implementation of data obtained from different technologies and/or sensors, meaning we study each case in depth to find the best solution that adapts to our customer’s particular needs.

Mobile Mapping is the best technology for data acquisition in complete city streets since it is fast and accurate. Whenever there are areas where this technology cannot be used, either because the roads are pedestrian only or too narrow, this technology is implemented alongside traditional technologies such as total station or GPS, as well as faster and more modern ones like terrestrial laser scanning and survey pack.

Laser scanning is used for points of interest to get highly precise cloud points as the equipment is small and compact and can work in difficult-to-access areas.

Survey pack makes it possible to obtain cloud points in narrow areas; it’s the best solution for linear paths needing less 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 mapped elements.

The creation of data sheets on elements of interest with the main characteristics.
