Leica Geosystems introduces Leica CountryMapper
Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, introduces the Leica CountryMapper, extending the hybrid sensor portfolio with the most efficient solution for large-area imaging and LiDAR mapping.
Combining a large-format photogrammetric camera with a high-performance LiDAR unit into a single system, the CountryMapper collects foundational geospatial data simultaneously, enabling the generation of highly accurate data products to support a wide variety of customer applications.
The CountryMapper makes full use of Leica Geosystems’ unique expertise in combining industry-leading imaging and LiDAR sensor modules into highly efficient hybrid airborne systems. CMOS-based Leica MFC150 camera modules leverage true mechanical forward-motion-compensation (FMC) to deliver industry-leading image quality, even at faster aircraft speeds and in challenging lighting conditions. The new Hyperion3 LiDAR unit features 60 degrees field of view, improving the performance and flexibility of the system compared to previous LiDAR modules, while reduced laser divergence provides greater planimetric accuracy and better foliage penetration. The CountryMapper fully integrates with Leica HxMapMulti-sensor end-to-end processing workflow, enabling distributed processing of images and point clouds to optimize productivity for very large data sets.
