Introducing Trimble’s Indoor Mobile Mapping Solution (TIMMS)

A walk-through with TIMMS of an interior space delivers full 360 degree coverage. The spatial data is captured and georeferenced in real-time. Thousands of square feet are mapped in minutes, entire buildings in a single day.

A Case Study

TIMMS is ideal for many applications, including Emergency Response:

Northwood Chief of Police Leo Dorsey is responsible for providing fast and effective responses to emergency situations in Worth County, Iowa. “Any building can be the scene of an emergency where people are in danger. Mistakes in these situations can cost lives. We need to be able to ‘see’ what we are getting into, plan our route and prepare for all the possibilities,” said Chief Dorsey.

For Northwood-Kensett High School of Worth County, accurate blueprints were non-existent and any response to an emergency would be “blind” to its structure and layout – a very difficult task. Accurate blueprint and spatial information of the inside of the school was urgently needed.

The time to acquire the necessary data for all 90 rooms of the school using traditional static scanning was estimated at 1 week and the associated processing of the data was estimated at another two weeks. This was deemed too time consuming and costly. A faster and more cost-effective solution was needed. After an extensive search, Trimble’s Indoor Mobile Mapping System (TIMMS) was selected.

Results: Enormous Cost and Time Savings

With TIMMS the entire school was scanned in just 5 hours. Processing the collected data and making it available to the customer was done in just 8 additional hours. The reduction in time-to-completion compared to the static method was 92%. Total cost savings achieved was 50% of the traditional method.
