The Leica Pegasus:One mobile mapping software platform, ArcGDS, is a complete solution from data acquisition to post-processing to database. It offers users immediate access to their imagery and point cloud data together in the same GUI. Users navigate visually through their images, simply clicking in their street views, and can add GIS metadata or calculate distances on the fly. Both the imagery and point cloud are calibrated together so clicking in one immediately provides access to the data in the other. The simplicity of the GUI together with the detailed access to the point cloud makes this platform ideal for all user levels.
With over a billion stop signs and 3.9 million miles of public road in the United States alone, the future of transportation related asset management now has become easier. With the introduction of new driver assisted technology for cars, the pressure on transportation departments has never been greater to document their highway systems in order to enable this technology to work successfully.
In the United States, over 700 thousand billboards exist with new laws limiting the total number of billboards allowed and their placement. Ensuring compliance will generate revenue for states and municipalities around billboard placement, and is now cost effective with the Leica Pegasus:One platform – by simply driving by.
“Leica Pegasus:One is an enabling product,” said Stuart Woods, Vice-President for Leica Geosystems Geospatical Division. “By providing a single integrated solution and by making our customer’s scanner’s mobile, we enable our customers to be more efficient.”
In situations where users want or can only afford to capture images, Leica offers an image only system without a scanner. This provides the same calibrated camera and leverages photogrammetry software to calculate distances from the images – ideal for GIS applications. No longer is the only option a “video recorder on wheels” – now images can be used for distance calculations.
Leica Pegasus:One is available for immediate sales. With a roadmap to add other qualified terrestrial scanners, with proper calibration, including the Leica ScanStation P20, Leica Pegasus:One is the future of mobile mapping.
