A digital representation of the rail network allows you to bring field work into the office and reduce the time staff spend on the tracks. Knowing the exact location and condition of all your assets is the foundation for new construction, operation and maintenance.



Reality Capture

Mobile mapping technologies easily create 3D digital realities of as-built rail tracks and associated infrastructure to extract vital information, such as track geometry. Capture can take place at high speeds and processing software allows the visualisation of the data.

GIS & Asset Management

Collect and manage GIS and asset information for the digital documentation, storage and visualisation of features to facilitate the operation, maintenance, upgrading and disposing of assets cost-effectively and without the need for several trips to the field.

Feature Extraction

Innovative software allows to automatically extract features with engineering accuracy from the railway network data with imported control points. Batch processing, measurement and extraction is ideal for monitoring and maintenance of private and public rail networks.

Aerial Corridor Mapping

Mobile and aerial technologies efficiently capture the smallest details, such as overhead wires over long distances. Digital terrain models help understand the network environment, manage assets efficiently and serve as base maps for GIS data.

As-Built Best Fit Geometry

Capture data to calculate the as-built best fit track geometry to define speed limits and track gauge, curvature, alignment, elevation and track surface according to the latest regulations and highest standards and use it as basis for every further survey task.

As-Is & As-Built Documentation

Rail tracks and supporting features are brought into the digital world for accurate calculation of track geometry and intelligent visualisation. Digital representations of the network give a holistic view from a point cloud of a section to the entire rail network, geometry and signals. As-is and as-built documentation is needed as the foundation for the planning, design and build of any rail expansion project.

PTC / ETCS Mapping

A digital representation of the rail network allows you to bring field work into the office and reduce the time staff spend on the tracks. Knowing the exact location and condition of all your assets is the foundation for new construction, maintenance and critical operations such as Positive Train Control (PTC) and European Train Control System (ETCS).
