Visual Intelligence unveiled its new geoimaging solution, iOne Infrastructure Metric Mapping System (iOne IMS), which is a major technological milestone for infrastructure metric mapping and surveying. iOne IMS allows aerial imaging companies to capture more imagery and data at a fraction of the up-front investment and operating cost of competing products—allowing them to do much more for less.
When installed on aircraft, the iOne IMS collects ortho, stereo, forward and backward oblique, multispectral 4-band and point cloud product generation—all in a single pass. Visual Intelligence is launching the iOne IMS today at RIEGL LIDAR 2013 during the International Airborne, Mobile, Terrestrial and Industrial User Conference in Vienna, Austria. Visual Intelligence Presidentand CEO Dr. Armando Guevara is a featured speaker at the event where he will present “The Making of the iOne IMS + Riegl: From Design to Delivery.”
“Sensor solutions for infrastructure metric mapping and surveying have traditionally been expensive, single-purpose devices that are not scalable, not flexible, hard to work with, and difficult to service and maintain,” said Guevara. “But iOne IMS represents a new generation of standards-based, multi-purpose sensor solutions that delivers the performance, quality and precision that mapping and surveying professional need to grow their businesses.”
iOne IMS is based on Visual Intelligence’s award-winning iOne Sensor Tool Kit Architecture (STKA), which is a next-generation software/hardware foundation for high-performing, multi-purpose 2D-3D geo-imaging sensors for aerial, terrestrial and mobile applications. iOne IMS is highly scalable both in terms of collection and functionality. Customers can easily expand from a medium-format iOne system to a large-format system. Customers can also buy only the functionality they need in the short term and then add more functionality as needed later on. Traditional solutions force customers to buy more functionality than they need, which increases capital equipment purchase and maintenance cost.
iOne IMS can be mounted on airplanes, helicopters and UAVs to support a wide range
of projects: Cadastral inventory; Roads and rails surveys; Construction surveys and monitoring; Oil and gas pipeline corridor mapping; Coastal surveys and environmental monitoring; River and body of water surveys and water quality control; Vegetation inventory and classification; Forest and agricultural monitoring; Disaster rapid response; And many others.
iOne IMS will be optimized for UAV, UAS and Mobile applications. Miniaturized versions will be usable in interior mapping, Building Information Management (BIM) and other mobile close range photogrammetry (3D) applications that leverage cell phone technology.
