StreetMapper is a rapid mapping laser scanning system capable of capturing data at speeds of up to 120kmph, therefore long stretches of road can be surveyed very quickly.
StreetMapper was the first commercially available Mobile Laser Scanning system (MLS) and benefits from a long-standing joint development venture of some 15 years between 3D Laser Mapping Ltd and IGI Systems mbH. In the survey business, it has a strong reputation as the most reliable, field-proven, flexible, robust MLS system on the market today – consistently delivering the highest accuracy results in the Survey Grade mapping sector.

"Where the streets have no name," sang rock frontman Bono on one of U2's biggest hits. "It must be hell being a postman, then," came the sarcastic rejoinder from the music press. But out in the real world, about four billion people on the planet actually live in places that have no street names, no house numbers - in fact, nothing that constitutes a proper address. And without that, they're off the map. They can't get a bank loan, they can't run a business, they have no voting rights or access to public utility services. And, in fact, they have no postmen.
"Most of Africa, Asia and South America have this problem," says Chris Sheldrick, 33, founder and chief executive of what3words, a small UK-based company that has come up with a radical new approach to the addressing system. "Trying to do a census with addresses like 'fourth lamp-post down the road' is really very inefficient, and we're coming in to say, 'No, you can do this differently'."
