01.02.2013: Helimap System SA and Alpscan SA will provide services using the latest terrestrial mobile system SAM from IGI System gmbh
The group Helimap System-Alpscan is now the first swiss company owning the 3 LiDAR technologies (airborne, mobile and static).
01.06.2012: Helimap System SA launches its third airbone system Helimap System® III
It combines Navigation grade IMU (0.007°/sec) with the new Riegl VQ-580 using the MTA technology. It allows to have several pulses in the air
keeping high point density while flying higher. The navigation grade IXSEA IMU permit to increase significantly the mapping accaurcy especially when flying at high altitude.
05.12.2012: Helimap System SA adds Thermal imagery sensor to Helimap System technology
High resolution Thermal orthoimagery (20-30cm) is a powerful tool for energy savings and building insulation management.
Combined to LiDAR, both insulation and solar potential maps can be achieved with a single flight. This can be integrated in standard GIS or web platform.
here is a sample of a swiss urban area

Typical operation carateristics of Helimap System® II:
Flight until 500m/ground
Point density of 5 to 30 points/m2 at 300m, multi-echo (until 9 returns)
Pixel size of 5cm at 300m
Oblique/vertical mapping with same "handheld" flexibilty as HSI
For corridor or surface until 10'000 ha
