It enables digital mapping from video and spatial positioning data ViMap uses a helicopter platform mounted with the following sensors and data acquisition systems:

  • Forward and vertical digital video cameras
  • GPS positioning
  • Inertial attitude sensor
  • Laser scanning
  • PC acquisition
