Paper Abstract

In 1989 the Center for Mapping of The Ohio State University established a major research program that focuses on the development of mobile mapping systems. Typically, these devices capture a comprehensive set of land-related data from airplanes, cars or trains. Spatial positions and attributes of objects are extracted automatically in the mobile system or during post-processing, and are immediately transferred to a multi-media geographic database. The motivation for the development of mobile mapping technologies was fostered by the need of current and accurate spatial data for geographic information systems. This article investigates different concepts of mobile data acquisition systems which were designed and implemented at The Ohio State University.
