Topcon Positioning Groupannounced the latest edition to its line of 3-D mobile mapping systems — theIP-S3. The fully integrated high-density digital imaging system is more compact, lightweight and designed to scan at a rate up to five times faster than previous models. Scanning at 700,000 points per second, the system is designed to offer data-rich results with its 30 MP panoramic imagery. Weighing 39 pounds, the IP-S3 is engineered to offer simplified installation. The system pairs with Topcon Mobile Master Office software to perform all post-processing functions in a single application. The system is planned for release in late 2014.
