Topcon IP-S2 demonstration at Rocket City Geospatial Conference

November 10, 2009


LIVERMORE, Calif. – Topcon Positioning Systems’ (TPS) new IP-S2 3D mobile mapping system will be on display for a special ‘Ride & Drive’ exhibit at the Rocket City Geospatial Conference on Tuesday, November 17.

The exhibit and hands-on demonstration will be held at the Davidson Center for Space Exploration in Huntsville, Alabama.

Demonstrations of the new IP-S2 technology, which features dual-frequency GNSS tracking, high-accuracy IMU integration, odometry, and flexible vehicle mounting options, will run throughout the day of the exhibit. The IP-S2 provides fast, safe GIS data collection at a cost well below conventional ground mapping methods.

Richard Rybka, TPS IP-S2 product specialist, said, “The Ride & Drive demo is a hands-on way to experience 3D mapping at normal speeds from the safety of a vehicle. After mapping is completed, office software enables GIS users to identify features from high-resolution imagery and LiDAR point clouds collected by the IP-S2. The combination of products forms a complete solution for rapidly populating databases used for asset inventory and management purposes.”

Product specialists will be available at the Topcon booth and during the demo drive to answer any questions about the IP-S2 mapping solutions.
