Cygnus Instruments, the leading manufacturer of Multiple Echo Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges have recently launched and currently demonstrating their latest Underwater model, Cygnus DIVE. Cygnus DIVE is packed with new features and has been designed to be worn on the diver’s wrist, potentially giving an invaluable free hand while performing thickness surveys. Like all Cygnus products the DIVE has been designed for easy operation, it has only two buttons for quick and easy navigation of the menu. It has a large bright colour TFT screen displaying the thickness measurements in large, clear, easy to read numbers. To assist in the verification of thickness measurements and to help locate suitable ultrasound reflectors on badly corroded metal the Cygnus DIVE can display an A-Scan graph of the ultrasound received.

Mobile Mapping for Marine and Ports Applications SARAH JONES, MANAGER GI SERVICES, LANDSCOPE ENGINEERING LTD A mobile mapping system integrates high resolution panoramic imagery (similar to Google StreetView) with high accuracy LiDAR (Light Detection & Ranging) measurements to provide an enriched data-set in which panoramic imagery has inherent spatial intelligence. The mobile mapping system user may view geographically unique environments from any aspect and are now enabled to coordinate what they see. Mobile mapping technology provides fully geo-referenced models, in which coordination, measurement and modelling is as simple as pointing and clicking. Topcon IP-S2 System – incorporating 360o Camera, IMU, GNSS and three Laser Scanners This simplification and convenience in mapping and modelling our built and natural environment has been made possible by recent developments in positioning technology. What was until recently the reserve of specialist high budget mapping campaigns utilising custom-built vehicles with protracted mobilisation and calibration procedures, is now available as a commercially viable tool for routine mapping projects. So how do we apply this technology to the marine and ports environment? Essentially we mobilise the mobile mapping system to a vessel of opportunity – eg. a RIB, Port Survey Vessel or Utility Vessel – and navigate around to cast accurate three-dimensional coordinates on everything in view. Whether the feature coordinates are derived from photogrammetric or LiDAR aided techniques the essence of the challenge is the ability to maintain accurate and robust 3D coordinates of the mapping platform, i.e. the survey vessel. Without this assurance the value of the mapping sensors – whether photographic, LiDAR, geophysical or other – are limited. Of course, ubiquitous GPS, or rather GNSS, is at the heart of the solution, providing not only high accuracy dynamic positioning but also a definitive timing reference. However, as all seasoned surveyors and GI professionals know, even with multiple- constellation, advanced signal processing GNSS receivers in a static mode the chances of maintaining accurate position within a built up environment are minimal. The real breakthrough with mobile mapping technology has been the augmentation of the GNSS solution with inertial navigation technology – the use of multiple accelerometers to determine positional change. Now the survey platform can maintain accurate position, and motion compensation, even while passing under such adverse GNSS environments as a bridge. The following deliverable and application examples are drawn from a recent LandScope Engineering Ltd autoMAP mobile mapping campaign aboard the Port of London survey vessel “Yantlet” in the River Thames. Visualisation – Panorama and Video – Asset Inspection Panoramic imagery acquisition has been acquired at circa 4 metre intervals along the survey route. The user is enabled to view within the panoramas from selecting from the point of interest on the trajectory – the specific view aspects overlaid here with aerial photography. The user may pan and zoom and catalogue as required. Panoramas may also be used to create video footage along the vessel trajectory. In all cases the imagery is accurately geo-referenced.
