Mobile Mapping

With demands from industry to provide massive 3D data sets representative of large swaths of infrastructure, Cansel has committed to providing Trimble's premium vehicle-mounted mobile spatial imaging systems. These systems, comprised of high-speed laser scanning and high-resolution imaging, allow the users to collect accurate, geo-referenced spatial data at highway speeds. This safe, frictionless mapping technique will forever transform the way you capture data on large-scale projects. It is a short step from here to create 3D models in Trimble’s ecosystem of collaborative software solutions.

These easy-to-use vehicle-mounted data capture systems, together with a complete field-to-finish workflow, will get your projects done in record time. Cansel’s Professional Services imaging specialists will train you and support your efforts to transform your high-density point clouds into striking and reliable deliverables to meet and exceed your project requirements in any format you require.

Not every project requires the same accuracy, right? With this in mind, there are several Trimble Mobile Mapping Systems from which to choose. So, whether your interest is in capturing immersive imagery to create a mapping-based street view application or you are looking to undertake precise survey and engineering projects, Cansel has a Trimble mobile mapping solution waiting to be discovered.
