Equipment and Services

The FIU GIS/RS Center has some new technology and equipment enriching our capability in 3d models, photoreconstruction and spatial analysis. These services are now available. Our equipment includes:

3D Scanner - The ultra-portable Faro FocusS 150 enables fast, straightforward and ultra-high accurate measurements of objects and buildings. It records architectural façades, complex structures, production and supply facilities, accident sites, and large-volume components delivering realistic and true-to-detail scan results with a range of 150m per scan. The point cloud with color assigned can create realistic 3D models of the environment scanned.

Drone - The Draganflyer Commander helicopter is a professional quality, powerful, easy-to-fly aerial platform specifically designed for high endurance applications for agriculture, public safety, search and rescue, mapping, aerial photography and much more.

Multispectral Camera - The MicaSense RedEdge™ is an advanced, lightweight, multispectral camera optimized for use in small unmanned aircraft systems. RedEdge™ provides accurate multi-band data for agricultural remote sensing applications. You can create high resolution aerial photos and many vegetation indexes.

Ground Lidar - The RIEGL VZ-1000 V-Line 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanner provides high speed, non-contact data acquisition using a narrow infrared laser beam and a fast scanning mechanism. Create accurate point clouds with this equipment.

Survey - The Trimble® S9 total stations integrate the best field technologies, plus our highest level of accuracy and specialized engineering features for the ultimate in performance and precision. 

Survey - Collect more accurate data faster and easier, no matter what the job or the environment, with the Trimble® R10 GNSS System. Built with powerful technologies integrated into a sleek design, this unique system provides surveyors with a powerful way to increase productivity in every job, every day.
