VisionMap has announced that its thermal airborne imaging system, MIST, was recently used to map and monitor pipeline infrastructure in Herten, Germany. The survey was commissioned by GEOCART, a leading German supplier of photogrammetric products and services. VisionMapâs system demonstrated its exceptional efficiency, high resolution, and high thermal sensitivity. The highly efficient MIST camera not only covers the area quickly, but also collects vertical and oblique images of the pipelines in the same flight. The camera is able to fly at high altitudes without compromising on resolution thanks to its long, 300 mm focal length; this ability is significant in urban areas, where residents may be disturbed by the noise of low-flying aircraft. VisionMapâs system automatically processes the captured images producing AT, orthophoto, DSM, 3D models, and geo-referenced vertical and oblique images on which measurements can be taken.
