The mobile mapping systems (MMS) and technology were introduced about two decades ago. In the beginning, the video cameras, GPS receivers, and odometers were mounted on vehicles to map streets and roads. Following, INS were integrated to the existing models and more recently lidar systems were inserted to the MMS. Georeferenced images are the starting point to data processing and they are used in several technologic, economic, social, and environmental applications. Those images are acquired by digital cameras whose position and orientation with respect to a geographic reference system are given by integrated sensors (GPS+IMU/INS) and data modeling. It is a problem of technologic improvement on scientific basis. Response time, robust quality, and operational costs are variables that demand strict control over hardware, software, and management. The Institute of Geomatics accepts to collaborate and to work together in order to configure and specify a fast, robust and cost effective MMS to deal with critical situations that demand a fast, liable, and prompt reply.
