At the end of January members of the UCL Geomatics Photogrammetry, 3D Imaging & Metrology (P3DIM) Group, in partnership with Michael Gallie & Partners and RICS, had an initial day of testing with the new indoor mobile mapping system (iMMS) from VIAMETRIS. This initial trial was carried out to gain a better understanding of the system and the data it produces, to allow for the planning of further testing later in March this year. We hope to establish the viability of this new type of integrated mobile LIDAR system for rapid geometry capture against traditional survey techniques. The system was tested in our home, the First Floor of the Chadwick Building, before it was taken into the UCL Cloisters and past Jeremy Bentham whom the group scanned by close range techniques in November 2012 (story here: http://uclgeomatics.com/2012/11/09/jeremy-bentham-in-3d/).
