    FIT ESIC is helping France’s national railway company SNCF improve safety and inform track upgrade works with the mobile laser scanning system StreetMapper. Owned and operated by FIT ESIC, the rail mounted StreetMapper was used to survey several hundreds of kilometres of track, generating engineering grade survey data on behalf of SNCF. The laser generated computer model was used to build a detailed 3D topographic map of the tracks and its surroundings. This provided length data and cross profiles as well as detecting potentially dangerous objects near the track...
