Topcon can help improve both quality and availability of the information you rely upon for decision-making. Our mobile mapping solutions capture massive amounts of data to be mined at will for many different purposes: power-line sag, asset condition, compliance, etc. Our monitoring solutions supply critical repeated measurements at unmatched accuracies. Tell us what you need to know, and we can provide the solution.

Measurement and management
solutions for the utility industry

Whether you are locating water valves, monitoring a hydro-electric plant,
or tracking asset condition of overhead wires, Topcon has a solution.

3D Mobile Mapping

Perfect Fit

Mobile Mapping technology is a great fit for Power, Electric and Distribution Utility applications. When massive amounts of data are required, collecting point cloud and image data quickly from a vehicle allows for utility management of large areas that are difficult to cover with point-to-point mapping on the ground. Use the point cloud and image dataset to manage and design utility networks, assess risk management and compliance, map line sag, look for ground clearance and encroachment. With 3D mobile mapping these tasks are done quickly and accurately. Change detection can easily be monitored over time.

Speed up Utility Data Collection

When utility systems need to mapped on a large scale, look no further than Topcon mobile mapping solutions. By mounting our integrated measurement sensors (GNSS, laser scanner, camera, IMU, wheel encoders) system to a vehicle, users get all field data in a short amount of time.

Just drive at normal speeds and get accurate locations and photographic visual detail of all roadside utilities. There is no need to take time to revisit the field for missing points.  All-in-one office software can then be used to view, process, project and export 3D point cloud, trajectory and panoramic image data.

Improved Safety

Keep field personnel off the street. Just send your small vehicle-based team into the field to collect data with a Topcon mobile mapping system. Field personnel are completely out of harms way when getting logging feature locations and attributes.

Power / Plants Documentation

Start with more complete data

Every jobsite presents its own set of unique challenges. In those applications that stand to benefit the most from mass data collection like Plant Engineering and Design, a 3D laser scanner deployed at a power generation or process plant can be the answer to reducing costs and increasing efficiencies when it comes to maintenance and upgrade projects. The Topcon GLS-2000 scanners series deliver the perfect mix of industry leading technology and user-friendly operations for this purpose. Combined with ScanMaster software, the GLS-2000 series provide users with a single solution to capture, visualize, and extract features from complex environments with an unmatched combination of speed, accuracy, and detail.

Reduce Costs

The GLS-2000 series collect accurate data the first time at the field site. Three different models are now available based on the range requirements of the target application. With selectable measurement modes, the GLS-2000 series empower you to choose the optimal scanning speed / range based on site conditions on a scan-by-scan basis. The resulting digital point cloud accurately depicts the existing plant conditions and can be shared immediately with co-workers for planning maintenance, upgrades and plant modifications. Human error and re-work costs are significantly reduced.

Improve Safety

Using the GLS-2000 series minimize the number of people deployed to the site to collect data. Due to it's long-range measurement capability, those operating the laser scanner may be positioned at safer distances from hazardous materials, and are on site for shorter amounts of time than with traditional data collection methods, thus minimizing risk and any possible personal injury.

Enhance Efficiency

Customizable scan resolution defaults working in combination with dual (5MP) digital cameras for collecting color imagery, ensures that no detail goes uncaptured. Data is accurate and complete and field re-visits are unnecessary. After processing in ScanMaster software, file export to a broad selection of formats, including Topcon’s widely accepted .CL3, which support today’s most requested design, analysis, and modeling applications.

Distribution Infrastructure Mapping

Distribution Infrastructure Mapping

The GIS mapping needs of a water utility are unique, given the need to capture horizontal and vertical positions with greater accuracy than typical mapping solutions can provide. This solution provides high accuracy (within 1-2 centimeters) while still having the flexibility and ease of use of handheld GNSS solutions. Take an existing map or dataset into the field, confirm or add points, lines or shapes, and then push the data to the cloud via built-in cell or wireless connections.

Topcon high accuracy point-to-point solutions: the easiest way to get high accuracy data into a GIS database.

Work in native shapefile formats in the field so data conversion steps are unnecessary. The field software has been developed from a GIS perspective making the learning curve to getting high accuracy data extremely minimal. Hardware configurations are simple, lightweight and cable-free.

Highly Versatile

Topcon high accuracy GIS solutions are highly versatile and can be easily configured for a variety of user requirements. Use a Network DGPS or WAAS correction for submeter work in areas such as Natural Resources and Environmental Management. Add a cellular enabled controller for sub-decimeter or centimeter level corrections for applications such as Utilities or Roadside Inventories.

Integrated Lightweight Design

With Topcon's GNSS high accuracy receiver as part of your high accuracy GIS solution, you don't have to sacrifice durabilty and performance for lightweight design. The integrated design includes GNSS receiver, power supply, memory and communications module: all in a rugged, environmentally sealed housing. No more hardware headaches in the field!
