Seiler Instrument & Mfg. Co. Inc. announced that it has been named as a distributor for the Trimble MX8 Mobile Spatial Imaging System.

The solution is an advanced mobile data capture system that combines imaging and laser scanning capabilities to measure objects in 3D to produce 3D, 4D and 5D data sets for spatial imaging projects. The Trimble MX8 Mobile Spatial Imaging System expands the scope of services that surveyors, engineers, mapping and geospatial professionals can offer to enhance their business. The system is ideal for as-built modeling, inventory, inspection, encroachment analysis, and asset management for roadways, bridges, railways, utilities, and other infrastructure.

With recent advances in the geospatial information industry, more opportunities and applications for spatial imaging data are being identified for industries such as transport and civil engineering, utilities and communications, natural resources management, and government. Many of these applications use airborne information, but would also benefit from ground-based positioning and imaging. While satellite and aerial imaging provide exceptional overhead views and long-range details, the only way to capture comprehensive eye-level views is from the ground. A ground-based sensor such as the Trimble MX8 is an ideal solution that delivers centimeter positioning accuracy, 3D measurements and video imaging-at highway speeds.

Per Tom Seiler, executive vice president of Seiler Instrument, “The Trimble MX8 Mobile Spatial Imaging System can do the work of several survey tools simultaneously, all while in constant motion.” Craig Williams, PLS from our Seiler Indianapolis Office stated, “Surveyors, engineers, and geospatial professionals can use this innovative data capture system to accurately and efficiently record as-built data for projects of all types and sizes, while keeping up with an ambitious schedule.”
