October 18, 2012 -- Taking place one day before Intergeo the IGI User Meeting has been hailed a success, attracting participants from around the globe. Delegates were provided with the perfect opportunity to network with specialist and get a very well start for the following Intergeo in Hannover.
“We have been more than happy with the turnout of the event,” commented Hubert Minten, CEO of IGI. “We offered a perfect mix of news in our technology, especially in front of Intergeo and discussions with our users about certain projects.” One delegate who attended the IGI User Meeting commented, “It was nice to present other suppliers, the whole package in front of Intergeo was perfectly organised and the presentations had great quality”.
During the IGI User Meeting delegates had hands-on presentations about our new mobile mapping system SAM – Static And Mobile, the new Penta DigiCAM housing and a complete overview of the new flight guidance & sensor management system CCNS-5.
Also two major steps in new IMU technology has been announced during Intergeo. The new, export free IGI IMU-IIf and IMU-m.
SAM is the new Static And Mobile LiDAR mapping system developed by IGI. By using up to two Faro Focus3D high-speed laser scanners combined with a 360° panoramic camera and a precise and affordable GNSS/IMU system, SAM brings wheels to your scanners.
The all new designed Penta DigiCAM housing is now suitable for the GSM-3000, PAV-80 and PAV-30 stabilized mounts. The Penta DigiCAM is based on five DigiCAM modules, four of which are arranged oblique and one nadir. The system is optimal for quick capturing of geo-referenced nadir & oblique imagery within one flight.
Having seen the first results of a gyroplane aerial survey at the IGI User Meeting, the Calidus Aerial Survey gyroplane has been one of the attractions during Intergeo. IGI and AutoGyro are cooperating in equipping a gyroplane with CCNS-5 and different aerial sensors for affordable aerial survey missions. After a couple of complete test flights during this summer a complete turn-key solution is available from now on. Together, IGI and AutoGyro serve and support a superb global network consisting of more than 60 sales & support partners around the world.
