New Paper Published

The final paper demonstrating the potential of MIMIC for optimising Mobile Laser Scanning System configurations,

"Improving MMS Performance during Infrastructure Surveys through Geometry Aided Design"

has just been published. We never used the VQ-250 for coastal surveys - but i would love to have had that dataset for validation against the drone surface models we made for the dune erosion in Portrane in 2012. 300,000 points per second! A coastal erosion study would have been the ideal test case for MIMIC - using the software to find the optimal FOV and scanner orientation to provide maximum point density on the dunes - concentrate all sensors on one side of the system for a single pass at the right tide level.

  1. Great job getting this one across the line Conor and others.
