Verus' Mobile Mapping Technology

Employing point cloud and photo collection through mobile, static, unmanned airborne vehicle (UAV) and airborne LiDAR, Verus is able to collect a full 3D representation of existing conditions for any project in a fraction of the time required for ground crew survey. Verus’ mobile mapping workflow is done with a truck-mounted┬ámobile mapper. Six cameras collect 360┬░ panoramic photo record every 4 metres of travel, the LiDAR collects 1.3 million points per second and the truck can collect data accurately up to any speed limit in Canada.

Verus offers post-processing of the geo-referenced LiDAR and/or digital imaging data into a viewable 3D image representation, which can then be exported into industry standard formats such as computer-aided drafting and design (CADD) and geographic information systems (GIS).

The detection swath is approximately 150 metres wide.

The deliverables from Verus are typically:

  • Full 3D CADD models
  • Perform & Update Asset Management
  • Flythroughs
  • GIS Layers
  • Point cloud and panoramic photos
  • Video walkthroughs
  • Road profiles
  • Merge and meshed with other data
