The Rodovia Raposo Tavares (SP-270, SP, Brazil) has cradled a new mapKITE mapping mission, carried out by ENGEMAP and jointly computed with GeoNumerics: results confirm mapKITE as a cm-level accurate 3D corridor mapping method.
Castelldefels (Spain) and Assis (SP, Brazil), 8 January 2019. ENGEMAP and GeoNumerics have finalized the accuracy evaluation of a mapKITE mission conducted on the SP-270 motorway (Rodovia Raposo Tavares, SP, Brazil) on 25 May 2018. The goal of the evaluation was to confirm the advantages of the mapKITE method and its Kinematic Ground Control Point (KGCP) concept over the “conventional” corridor mapping method in a typical operational mapping scenario. As expected, mapKITE and the conventional method delivered comparable accuracy results the difference being that the latter requires a dense set of surveyed Ground Control Points (GCPs) while mapKITE does the job with almost no GCPs.
