Leica Pegasus:MapFactory

Mobile Reality Capture

Leica Pegasus:MapFactory Software - Mobile Sensor Platforms

Leica Pegasus:MapFactory software suite is the complete solution for the Leica Pegasus Mobile Sensor Platform, covering the end to end workflow – from data collection to feature extraction. The intuitive user interface combined with the efficient workflow and semi-automated feature extractions allows you to obtain your project deliverables fast.

Data acquisition with Leica Pegasus:MDA
Leica Pegasus MDA is your co-pilot during data acquisition. It allows you to setup your acquisition and store the point cloud, images, IMU and GNSS data on the Leica Pegasus:Two. It provides a view of the health of your system. When your mission is complete, you can download the data.

Accurate trajectory with NovAtel Inertial Explorer®
NovAtel Inertial Explorer® software is used to process the raw GNSS, IMU, and speed sensor observations to create a smooth vehicle trajectory that can be used to geo-reference the image and point cloud data acquired. This post-processing module reports the estimated trajectory accuracy.

Fast automated post-processing with Leica Pegasus:AutoP
Leica Pegasus:AutoP software links the high dynamic camera images and point cloud scans to display a calibrated output of point cloud and image data that can be used together in the Leica Pegasus:Viewer and Leica Pegasus:MapFactory.

Quickly check the data with Leica Pegasus:Viewer
Leica Pegasus:Viewer allows you to display and navigate through the processed images and point clouds. Leica Pegasus:Viewer is free to allow you can share the data quickly.

Feature extraction with Leica Pegasus:MapFactory
Leica Pegasus:MapFactory for ArcGIS allows you to use the stereoscopic images and point cloud to measure and extract from your acquired data within ArcGIS. Semi-automated tools are available to allow you to extract your information fast. Digitizing is easy as you can work within the images which are calibrated to the point cloud. After your objects are measured and meta-tagged, export the data to various formats including AutoCAD.

Workflow: In 4 steps from data collection to CAD files

Leica Geosystems Mobile Sensor Platforms - Software - Leica Pegasus:MapFactory Workflow

Advanced roads and highways tools
From powerful road surface analysis to extensive road asset extraction, the dedicated workflow for road assessment leverages the innovative pavement camera combined with the low noise Z+F 9012 Laser Profiler from Leica Pegasus:Two enabling advanced, unique analysis functions.

Automatic road analysis tools

  • Roads signs are semi-automatically detected, classified and geo-referenced with one click.
  • IRI (international roughness index) can be obtained by the point cloud data.
  • Crack index is automatically calculated from the images delivered by the pavement camera. The indexing can be converted to your local indexing standards.
  • Rut depth analysis is a powerful tool to automatically recognise holes of certain depth. The road damage is highlighted and georeferenced in the images and point clouds.
  • Vertical clearances can recognise automatically all obstacles above a certain height. All clashes are outlined and georeferenced.
  • High resolution orthoimage (up to 3 millimeters pixel size) are obtained from the pavement camera and become a very important base map for crack defects classification.

Guided semi-automatic extraction tools

  • Road lines are recognised through the intensity of the point cloud data. This enables a fast feature extraction and data validation.
  • Poles are detected from the point cloud. They can be classified by feature, height, diameter and position, which is stored and highlighted in the base map.
  • Billboards can be easily extracted with one click from the point cloud. The billboard meta tag stores the dimensions, image and position.
  • Cross sections are fast to create. After assigning a reference line, the software automatically creates vertical and longitudinal cross sections in a given spacing one after the other. All cross sections can be batch exported to a CAD program.
  • Pave Deformation automatically recognises the road level change. The deformation is classified by colourised height – this allows a fast recognition of the extent of the deformation.
