Global geospatial service provider AAM Group has reported an increase in both profit and team capacity following the introduction of mobile mapping system StreetMapper.
AAM Group started using the Mobile Laser Scanning (MLS) technology from supplier 3D Laser Mapping at the end of 2015 after similar success for the company’s South African office, which utilised a unit originally purchased in 2011.
StreetMapper’s high levels of accuracy have allowed AAM Group to offer an all-important point of difference in India’s growing road-surveying sector, resulting in the company securing a number of new government and private road contracts. By reducing the time taken to complete projects by 70 per cent, compared to the use of traditional surveying methods, AAM’s team capacity has also dramatically increased, allowing them to take on more work.
“Our StreetMapper has significantly increased the accuracy expected by the industry from MLS,” commented Satish Kumar, technical head of solutions at AAM Group. “Before StreetMapper arrived, the majority of the Indian market only had inexperienced users and non-survey grade MLS units.
