SLAM: Simultaneous Localization and Mapping

SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) is a mobile mapping system developed during the 1980s. Today’s SLAM systems deliver survey-grade point cloud quality and enable high quality mapping of construction sites and buildings. SLAM technology enables rapid data and imagery acquisition with excellent results. Martinez Geospatial uses the NavVis VLX 2nd Generation wearable mobile mapping system to ensure high-quality point cloud data acquisition that enables precision mapping and modeling.

Maneuverable and Precise Laser Scanning

Some spaces are easier to scan than others. Simultaneous localization and mapping systems offer an excellent alternative to traditional laser scanning, particularly for indoor areas. The NavVis VLX 2nd Generation used by Martinez Geospatial offers many benefits, including:

  • Fast and accurate point cloud data and color imagery acquisition.
  • The ability to scan areas where traditional terrestrial laser scanning can be challenging.
  • Preserving the details of the scanned features while automatically detecting dynamic objects and removing noise.
  • Control point support.

NavVis VLX 2nd Generation Specifications:

  • Relative Point Cloud Accuracy of 8mm
  • Maximum Range of 100m
  • 300,000 Points perSecond (x2)
  • 4 x 20 Megapixel Image Resolution
