Orbit GT Partner News & Case Stories

Vista 360: the digital transformation of street management

Our great partner in Costa Rica, Geotecnologias, recently republished his 2018 Orbit GT article in the GeoInformatics magazine. Enjoy reading!

Ordnance Survey adopting Smart Orbit 3DM Technologies

With the Ordnance Survey being existing Orbit users, our partner LandScope was able to supply 3D Mobile Mapping data to augment their existing model to fully visualise, assess and accurately extract highway infrastructure assets with full attribution intelligence for rapid GIS population and smart city modelling.

Hong Kong mapping

Together with Ambit, our partner Vexcel has been running some pilot projects at Hong Kong. Combining backpack, streetview, and aerial captured data is key in these projects. The Orbit suite offers a perfect solution to match everything together and share the Reality Capture to a wider audience.

Indoor Mapping at LAX

Orbit GT’s software and built in workflows have raised the bar of indoor mapping at airports; the speed of making information available, the ease of updating data when changes occur, combined with the advantages of visualizing and better understand the underlying data layers benefits all stakeholders. Our partner X-Spatial is running the indoor project in Los Angeles Airport.

The race is on!

From highway gully mapping to race circuit modelling, our partner LandScope Engineering has been using mobile mapping technology to create an accurate and detailed highways asset inventory for the Highways Services Division at the Isle of Man Government utilising Orbit’s Feature Extraction software.

Given the incredible amount of detail available from the originally captured point cloud data and panoramic photography, LandScope were provided with an opportunity to work with a gaming solution provider to create an environmental model of the TT track for their newly released game Isle of Man TT Ride on the Edge for PS4/XBOXone/PC – proving the value of mobile mapping as a 3D digital record tool.

New York City Mapping project
