Mapping urban areas by LANDINS

IXSEA a manufacturer of high performance Inertial Navigation, Surface and Underwater Positioning Systems, announced a series of deliveries of LANDINS, the high-end Inertial Navigation positioning system specifically designed for mobile mapping and route mapping applications in dense urban areas, where GPS quality is often poor and the need for geo-referenced information is most critical.

"We are proud to help survey companies and academic institutions receive rapid geo-referenced data by extending their operational capacities when GPS is in difficulty," said Yves Paturel, Director for IXSEA, Land & Air.

Among the most recent deliveries: StratAG research group based at National University of Ireland, Maynooth (NUIM) - Ireland, is constructing an art mobile mapping system based around the latest high-grade GPS/IMU, Riegl VQ-250 LiDAR sensors and eight multispectral cameras. “LANDINS was chosen after public tender for its high performance and competitive pricing,” said Dr Tim McCarthy, NUIM.

LANDINS is now used in geoVISAT's VISAT system, an innovative and disruptive technology for creating and updating 3-D GIS databases very quickly and inexpensively. geoVISAT – a separate business unit within Vansteelandt bvba, has entered into a strategic partnership with AMS (patent holder of the VISAT technology) and holds the exclusive rights to deploy the VISAT technology throughout Europe.
