Ground Capture & Mobile Mapping

Gather large amounts of geospatial data from a moving platform

Create highly accurate 3D maps, models and point clouds which can be used for a wide range of applications including urban planning, infrastructure asset management, disaster response and more.

How it was done in the past

Traditionally, infrastructure asset management and urban planning had been a labour-intensive task requiring many man-hours for site visits and manual inspections up close.

Manual Labour

Data collection and measurements were done manually.

Human Error

Traditional method relies heavily on the skill set and competency of workers.


Data collection is slow and data set may become obsolete when they are eventually compiled.

Gathering Mobile Data

The Visual-Based Mobile Mapping System provides higher point-cloud density for a more accurate asset database.

The 360º camera and LiDAR enables high quality data and images, useful for effective analysis.

Deployable almost anywhere, other than fitted on drones, the sensors can also be mounted on ground vehicles or worn using a special backpack.

AECA's Mobile Mapping Solutions

Can be customised according to your budget.

High Resolution

LiDAR scanning allows for higher resolution images and data accuracy than photogrammetry alone.


The key advantage of modular mobile mapping is its flexibility and adaptability arising from a more flexible platform and sensor selection.

FAST and efficient

Digitising bigger areas can now be done faster, easier and more cost-efficient with AECA.

Streamlined Workflow

Automatically stored in database; allows for faster retrieval.

The deliverables would depend on your specific application and the type of data you require. Typically, our process is as follows:

01. planning

Discuss with our team the scope of your project, your objectives and the type of data you require.

We will then customise a solution based on your needs.


If you decide to engage our services, our team will carry out the ground capture to collect relevant data for you.

Or if you prefer to do it yourself, we can train you how to do it with a package that is the perfect solution to achieve faster ROI (Return On Investment).


You can engage us to process and analyse your data or you can learn from us how to do it yourself.

We can also recommend a streamlined workflow that would help you manage your data better.


Q: What is Ground (Mobile) Mapping?

A: Ground (Mobile) Mapping is the process of using specialized equipment, such as GPS and LiDAR sensors, mounted on a mobile platform, such as a car, to capture detailed spatial data of a specific area or region.

What are some common applications of Ground (Mobile) Mapping?

Ground (Mobile) Mapping can be used for a variety of applications, including road and highway planning, urban planning, natural resource management, topographic mapping, and disaster management.

What types of equipment are typically used for Ground (Mobile) Mapping?

Ground (Mobile) Mapping typically uses a combination of GPS, LiDAR, and other sensors to capture accurate and detailed spatial data. These sensors are often mounted on a specialized mobile platform, such as a car or truck.

How accurate are the maps generated using Ground (Mobile) Mapping?

The accuracy of the maps generated using Ground (Mobile) Mapping can vary depending on the quality and capabilities of the equipment used, as well as the processing software. However, in general, the maps can be highly accurate, with resolution down to a few centimeters in some cases.

Are there any legal requirements for using Ground (Mobile) Mapping services?

Yes, there are typically legal requirements that must be followed when using Ground (Mobile) Mapping services. These can include obtaining permits and licenses, following specific regulations regarding data collection and privacy, and adhering to specific safety guidelines.

How long does it take to complete a Ground (Mobile) Mapping project?

The time required to complete a Ground (Mobile) Mapping project can vary widely depending on the size and complexity of the area being mapped, as well as the quality and capabilities of the equipment and processing software. However, projects can often be completed in a matter of weeks or months, rather than years.

How much does it cost to use Ground (Mobile) Mapping services?

The cost of Ground (Mobile) Mapping services can vary depending on a number of factors, including the size and complexity of the project, the quality of the equipment and processing software used, and the experience and expertise of the service provider. However, costs can range from a few thousand to several hundred thousand dollars for a single mapping project, depending on the scale and requirements of the project.
