AIMM: An image based approach to precision mobile mapping for asset and infrastructure information. Asset management has become a key component of many municipalities survival in the recent difficult economic times. Most things have a life expectancy and being able to keep track of when you are nearing the end of that life expectancy allows you to plan for the orderly inspection, repair, replacement of that particular piece of infrastructure, in turn minimizing your cost and preventing a catastrophic failure. The combination of the advancements in digital imagery, photogrammetry, and computer vision have met in a perfect storm to provide an image based mobile mapping solution that can produce a 360 degree imagery view for the extraction of precise 3D geolocated point data, vectors, and point clouds. The technology lends itself extraordinarily well to asset and inventory mapping as well as numerous other applications.
