Yotta, a 3D mapping division of OMG plc unveiled what is no doubt the world’s first panoramic 60 megapixel street-level imaging vehicle. By using the 60 megapixel panoramic camera and Applanix satellite positioning technology, the Y360 vehicle will help to enhance street-level mapping with accurate 3D images of buildings and other highway features.
The onboard camera is able to captures images every 2 metres, with the precise position (to less than 1 metre) of each image calculated by combining GPS, Inertial and Optical tracking systems with advanced algorithms.
'Y360 is a leap forward in surveying technology and illustrates the evolution in the services Yotta offers to our customers. This new addition to our specialist survey vehicle fleet provides a major advancement in street-level mapping. This will allow our Local Authority clients and Highways Agencies to gain full benefit of higher levels of accurate asset information based on 3D images. This new technology also opens up a whole new area of applications and opportunities with a broader range of customers for Yotta,' says David Lowe, Yotta CEO.
