WGI’s Geospatial Team Unveils New Cutting-Edge 72 Megapixel Spherical Mosaic Camera System

This addition to the Geospatial Team’s Mobile lidar collection provides 72 MP of high-resolution imagery & allows us to offer a more robust dataset.

We love getting our hands on the latest technology, and we’re excited to share that our Geospatial team recently acquired a Mosaic 51 – one of the best 360º camera setups on the market today. This addition to the Geospatial Team’s Mobile lidar collection provides 72 MP of high-resolution imagery & allows us to offer a more robust dataset to our teams and our clients.

Mosaic Camera

The new camera not only allows for higher-resolution imagery to be captured but also performs on-the-fly image optimization (brightness, contrast, color balance).

We are in full production, now exporting this very high-resolution imagery for texturizing 3-D models. This camera enables the use of the imagery, with structure from motion approaches, to seamlessly augment lidar-derived point clouds to make them considerably denser when required for the extraction of objects.

This camera also enables the ability to explore the generation of 3D models utilizing imagery structure from motion to augment our lidar collection and develop a considerably denser point cloud vs the density of our current lidar-derived point clouds.

Higher-resolution imagery will allow our team to extract linework and points from the point cloud with finer detail than we could have achieved in the past. This will provide for a richer GIS-based data set from which AR models will be generated.

National Surveyors Week 2022

WGI kicks off National Surveyors Week celebrating the history of the surveying profession and the surveyors who contribute to the advancement of our communities every day.


Technically Speaking, We Birdied All 36 Holes…

Working with golf course designer Kipp Schulties of Kipp Schulties Golf Design, Inc., it was determined that an aerial mapping approach would minimize time onsite and create very little impact on golf course activities.
