"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.
