WGI acquires Mosaic 51
We love getting our hands on the latest technology, and we’re excited to share that our Geospatial team recently acquired a Mosaic 51 – one of the best 360º camera setups on the market today. This addition to the Geospatial Team’s Mobile LiDAR collection provides 72 MP of high-resolution imagery & allows us to offer a more robust dataset to our teams and our clients.

High resolution imagery for texturizing 3D models
The new camera not only allows for higher-resolution imagery to be captured, but also performs on-the-fly image optimization (brightness, contrast, color balance).
WGI reported that they are in full production, now exporting this very high-resolution imagery for texturizing 3-D models. This camera enables the use of the imagery, with structure from motion approaches, to seamlessly augment LiDAR-derived point clouds to make them considerably denser when required for extraction of objects.
This camera also enables the ability to explore the generation of 3D models utilizing imagery structure from motion to augment their LiDAR collection and develop a considerably denser point cloud vs the density of their current LiDAR-derived point clouds.
Higher resolution imagery will allow the WGI team to extract linework and points from the point cloud with finer detail than could have achieved in the past. This will provide for a richer GIS-based data set from which AR models will be generated.
