3D Mobile Mapping Technology Inspires Positive Change

Future Proofing Singapore
Singapore is home to some of the most profitable financial services, manufacturing and oil-refining corporations in the world. An island state just off the coast of southern Malaysia, its small size has clearly not impeded the success of residents or firms choosing to locate themselves there. But with its accomplishments come some very specific challenges for a city which is limited by space but still demanding growth. This article discusses how 3D mobile mapping is contributing to one of the most ambitious digital twinning projects the world has ever seen, in the hopes of paving the way for better future-proofing...

Bluesky Uses Mobile Phones to Create 3D Maps

Aerial mapping company Bluesky has completed a research project backed by the UK government’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, to develop the use of mobile phones for capturing accurate 3D spatial information. The nine-month investigation focused on the use of standard smartphone technology to capture and calibrate video footage, then convert it to 3D information. Accurate measurements of essential infrastructure, such as overhead power lines and other utility facilities, could then be extracted using specially developed algorithms and workflows. Designed to provide an accurate record of the feature’s location and its environment, the Bluesky project is expected to appeal to electricity... (read more)
