Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) Latin American distributor Geomatic Instruments Corporation S.A.C. (Geincor) is now offering the IP-S2 mobile mapping system. Geincor, based in Lima, Peru, took ownership of the system in April.

Topcon's IP-S2 integrates 3D laser scanning with digital imagery and its advanced technology is changing the way data is collected and managed, according to Richard Rybka, TPS mobile mapping specialist. The system can be mounted on a wide range of vehicles and operates at normal roadway speeds.

The company’s business plan is two-fold: Geincor will act as a sales agent for customers wishing to purchase an IP-S2; for customers and agencies who need comprehensive 3D data, the company will provide collection services.

The dealer / service provider model will enable the company to serve a wide range of Peru's mapping needs.

“Mapping the nation's historic areas is one of our priority goals,” Nelson Meneses, company deputy director general, said. “We completed a test run in Lima's historic district and the results were impressive.” Raul Meneses is the company director general.

Rybka, who trained Geincor employees in IP-S2 installation and operation in Peru, said, “Spending a week with their staff was a very gratifying experience. The company’s staff members possessed the highest level of technical skill and professionalism.”
