Paper Abstract

Unmanned aerial mapping is becoming more and more popular in the last years, mostly because of advances in 3D reconstruction from images and its price affordability. The results of 3D reconstruction from images coming close to results of laser scanning in the resolution and accuracy point of view in some cases. However, mobile laser scanning still have advantages in reliability and easiness of measured data processing. That’s why we have chosen an airship as a carrier capable to carry laser scanning unit. Most of the laser scanner used in mobile mapping works in profiler (2D, plane) mode. We decided to modify laser scanner Sick LD-LRS1000 for scanning in conical shape mode, because of its favorable properties. The realization of the modification is described in the paper.
