Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) entered into a strategic alliance with Geospatial Holdings, Inc. to jointly market Geospatial’s Smart Probe Pipeline Mapping Technologies with Topcon’s IP-S2 3D above-ground mobile mapping system. The combined technologies allow municipalities, engineers, pipeline operators and utilities the capability of gathering and managing 3D georeferenced surface features along with 3D underground pipeline data. Geospatial utilizes proprietary technologies to economically locate and create accurate 3D maps of underground pipelines and conduits. Topcon’s IP-S2 3D mobile mapping system travels the pipeline or utility corridor above-ground at speeds up to 65 miles per hour.
