Topcon Releases Spatial Factory Software for Managing IP-S2 3D Mobile Mapping Data

LIVERMORE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 13, 2010 — Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) has announced the release of Spatial Factory software.

The simple interface of this software allows users of the IP-S2 3D mobile mapping system to easily work with the combination of point cloud, trajectory and panoramic image data that comes from the IP-S2.

The IP-S2 system incorporates state-of-the-art technologies, including high-precision GNSS receivers, IMU (inertial measurement unit), vehicle wheel encoders, 360-degree digital camera and laser scanners. The system is designed so users can collect precise vehicle position/bearing data and capture spherical imagery of roadside objects such as sidewalks, buildings, tunnels, bridges and overpasses, while driving the system-mounted vehicle at normal traffic speeds.

IP-S2 data can be viewed in Spatial Factory on a background map, in 3D or in a panoramic view of images overlaying point cloud data. Control point registration can be achieved to increase the accuracy of collected data over long distances. The software is designed so distances between features can easily be measured and features and attributes can be extracted and exported into shapefile or ASCII formats in various coordinate systems.

Spatial Factory software also supports the import of shapefiles from existing geodatabases and the import and export of collected point cloud data to CSV and LAS formats. Trajectory information can be exported to KML for use in Google Earth, GML, a portable file format for graphs and ASCII.

Dave Henderson, 3D mobile mapping national sales manager for TPS said, “Having access to this new Spatial Factory software really simplifies the IP-S2 datasets and makes the complex combination of high-tech sensor information easy to use and understand. Viewing colorful 3D point clouds overlaid with images makes the data easy for anyone to interpret, manage and export for use in many popular GIS and mapping programs. We are excited to offer this software to make a very complex system simple for the user.”

Typical IP-S2 applications include:

-- 3D mobile mapping and surveying;

-- Automated vehicle control;

-- Vehicle tracking;

-- Roadway condition assessment;

-- Pipelines, railways, utility corridors and waterways;

-- Homeland security; and

-- Disaster management.
