Mobile Mapping now offered in Nordic countries

Blom has recently added Mobile Mapping (car laser) to our product offering in the Nordic countries. The system has been used for a number of projects in the UK and will be capturing data on and along roads in Norway, Sweden and Finland in the near future.

Mobile mapping has become a popular mapping method, especially for road and infrastructure projects. The system secures effective data capture with high density (750-1000 p/m2) and high accuracy. The processing workflow is quite similar to our airborne activities and we expect many clients to combine Mobile Mapping data with laser and/or imagery from our helicopter or airplane solutions.

Some sample applications are:

  • Asset inventory & Management - Effective digitization and asset inventory for export and use in GIS systems
  • Topographic mapping for engineering - Detailed topographic mapping for Highway Design applications
  • Safety fence assessment - Road designers and maintainers can check compliance of safety barrier heights
  • Surface profiling & drainage - Positioning, LiDAR, video and mapping enable highway designers to map road surface contours and drainage profiles
  • Vegetation Management - Better understanding, planning and management of when vegetation must be cut
  • Signs & road marking – Frequent and low cost control and monitoring of signs and road markings
