Here's what Jean- Marc Ferre, Mobile Mapping EMEA Senior Sales Manager, Trimble revealed to us ahead of the event:

What are the emerging trends in the Mobile Mapping Market?

The scanning mobile market is growing faster than GNSS, total stations or 3D scanning markets. The growth is driven by the technology adoption  from the customer.

How does Mobile Mapping work?

Mobile mapping is the process of collecting geospatial data from a mobile vehicle, typically fitted with a range of photographic, radar, laser, LiDAR or any number of remote sensing systems. Such systems are composed of an integrated array of time synchronised navigation sensors and imaging sensors mounted on a mobile platform. The primary output from such systems include GIS data, digital maps, and georeferenced images and video.

What is the future outlook towards Mobile Mapping?

We are just at the beginning of Mobile Mapping business. More and more outdoor and indoor applications need mass data collection quickly and simply. Smart cities, constructions, transportation's market will continue to request huge data.

What are the major drivers driving the Mobile Mapping Market?

Transportations, logistics, road constructions and smart cities are the largest revenue contributor.

What are the type of projects that greatly benefit from Mobile Mapping?

1. Rising demand for 3D Imagery for various applications;
Asset management,
Transportations ( Highway, Rail, Waterways)
2. Increasing urbanization and  Government spending on large scale Infrastructure projects
3. Smart cities and 3D cities initiatives

What should the attendees expect to take back from your session at the Geospatial Leaders Conference?
