Topcon provides IP-S2 3D dataset to Autodesk for promotion

LIVERMORE, Calif. — February 24, 2010 Topcon Positioning Systems announced that it recently signed a data license agreement with Autodesk, Inc., a world leader in 2D and 3D design, engineering and entertainment software.

The agreement authorizes Autodesk to use Topcon’s IP-S2 3D Mobile Mapping System data sets in the advertising, marketing, training and distribution of their software where desired. The IP-S2 datasets are in the form of extensive geo-referenced, colorized point clouds.

Topcon is a member of the Autodesk Developer Network, and provides sample data to assist in targeted software product development.

The IP-S2 features dual-frequency GNSS tracking, high-accuracy IMU integration and odometry for fast, safe data collection at a cost well below conventional ground mapping methods.

Typical applications of the IP-S2 are:

  • 3D Mobile mapping and surveying;
  • Roadway condition assessments;
  • Pipelines, Railways, Utility Corridors, Waterways;
  • Homeland Security; and
  • Disaster Management.
Charles Rihner, vice president of Topcon’s Emerging Business Unit, said, “We are excited to provide the IP-S2 datasets to Autodesk as we believe it enables them to highlight the many features of their software in a way that reflects their customer’s current and future requirements.”

Topcon Positioning Systems, Inc. (TPS) designs and manufactures precise positioning products and solutions for the global surveying, construction, agriculture, civil engineering, mapping and GIS, asset management and mobile control markets. TPS’ parent company, Topcon Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange – 7732), was founded in 1932.
