The Lynx Mobile Mapper boasts a revolutionary new lidar sensor head that leverages Optech’s extensive experience in surveying development, in addition to iFLEX – the latest in lidar innovation – to collect survey-grade lidar data at over 200,000 measurements per second with a 360º field-of-view (FOV), while maintaining a Class 1 eye safety rating.
“The idea of capturing data from both a terrestrial scanner and airborne scanner and its seamless integration is something we envisioned from the inception of the Lynx Mobile Mapper,” said Albert Iavarone, Optech’s Business Unit Manager of Industrial and 3D Imaging. “Sanborn has the knowledge base to quickly and effortlessly fuse both data sets with a rich, dense, complete data set being the deliverable. Optech is excited to have Sanborn expand their business with the Lynx system, and Sanborn’s customer base will be the ultimate winner.”
The addition of the Lynx Mobile Mapper allows Sanborn to offer their complete “Ground2Sky” picture of the world and its environment, and is a natural extension to the workflows and processes in place for airborne lidar collection and processing.
