Mobile mapping is currently one of the rapidly emerging technologies used to access and deliver Big(geo)data in the geospatial industry. The collection of highly precise 3D point cloud data by laser scanning systems from moving platforms involves an integration of navigation, imaging, and positioning software solutions. This presentation introduces a discussion on the field operations and performances of state-of-the-art mobile terrestrial LiDAR scanning technologies that collect high quality data for modeling civil infrastructure assets. In this work, we present the capability, capacity, and sensitivities of the LiDAR scanner, the inertial measuring unit, and the positioning capabilities for various settings including urban canyons. We also discuss IT system architecture requirements to service mobile mapping system for Big(geo)data acquisitions. Our review suggests that mobile mapping systems can be divided into two categories – general mapping and high resolution surveying - depending on project requirements such as purpose, accuracy, range, and resolution. We also consider future trends in mobile mapping technologies for GIS applications.
