Mobile mapping involves driving a vehicle with cameras and/or laser scanning equipment mounted on the vehicle, in order to acquire geometric and schematic information for buildings, infrastructure and other notable features. A computer program called VISAT Station then utilizes image and/or 3D laser scanner data in order to produce GIS data outlining the positions key features (GIS data is in the form of points, lines and polygons). GIS data with accuracies of a few centimeters can be produced by using the image and/or 3D laser scanning information provided. FME is subsequently used to convert data formats for GIS data produced so that such data can be utilized by other computer programs to generate fully processed data for clients.
