Leica Geosystems Announces World’s First Fused Airborne Sensor

Heerbrugg, Switzerland/Anaheim, California, USA – Leica Geosystems, industry leader of reality capture and measurement technology, announced today Leica CityMapper as part of the RealCity 3D reality capture solution, enabling professionals to collect and process imaging and LiDAR data in a single sensor.

Combining CityMapper and Leica HxMap, the scalable post-processing workflow software, RealCity simplifies and streamlines the creation of all 2D and 3D information layers.

Most comprehensive base layer
As our world continues to grow in complexity so has the required geospatial base data to manage this increased complexity.  This merging of sensors and software enables professionals to generate the most comprehensive geospatial base layer in just one flight. Professionals are able to efficiently produce all the conventional 2D and 3D information layers, from orthophotos and oblique images to point clouds, 3D meshes, and 3D models.

“CityMapper captures imagery and LiDAR data, enabling users to produce rich information,” said Anders Ekelund, vice-president for airborne LiDAR at Leica Geosystems. “Users can now save significant time and cost by flying once to collect twice the data as before."

Mapping for SmartCities
In fast changing urban environments, the need for a geospatial base layer goes beyond traditional data that requires regular updates. This is especially true in SmartCity applications where authorities need highly accurate and current detailed information, such as elevation models, vegetation growth and land use, for faster and better informed decision making.

Eliminating the need for multiple sensors, RealCity allows a high data throughput to provide rapid updates. With intuitive end- to-end workflow in just one software interface to produce all data sets, post-processing is accomplished significantly faster, easier and more efficiently.

"At Leica Geosystems, we continue to digitise the airborne industry through innovations not easily repeated," said Ruedi Wanger, vice-president for airborne imaging at Leica Geosystems. "By intensely listening to our customers, we understand what is required to keep users providing top results. We then deliver on that exact technology."
