Digital Planimetric Mapping Services

Planimetric 3D Feature Extraction for better insight and decision making

  Services

A planimetric map consists of manmade and natural features represented as lines, closed polygons and points using aerial and satellite images. Digital Planimetric mapping involves the extraction of the earth’s features such as roads, building footprints, river outlines and closed water bodies. These features are provided as vector basemaps for further use in GIS and topographic mapping workflows, as well as specific applications including urban mapping. Planimetric data enables governments and businesses to take better decisions and provide better insights as to where certain features are located on earth.

Magnasoft planimetric 3D feature extraction services

Magnasoft has a rich experience in providing planimetric data for counties, municipalities, real estate, forestry, transportation and hydrography. We offer both 2D and 3D digital planimetric mapping services. The difference between 2D and 3D planimetric mapping is that 2D planimetric mapping is independent of elevation and captures feature outlines in a two-dimensional format using orthorectified images, whereas 3D planimetric mapping involves the identification and extraction of horizontal and relief features in a three dimensional format

The importance of Location Data and Smart Growth Urban Planning

The term planimetry comes from planimetrics, which is the study of plane measurements. A planimetric survey, for example, is made by angular and linear measurements in the field or by combining topographical work using aerial surveys in order to produce topographic base maps, as they include important digital spatial information used for land and asset management. Planimetric mapping data is also used for providing insights and aiding decision making processes in specific industries. For example, the transportation sector uses planimetric maps for better planning and judgment on the existing road data by providing real-time information such as road features, powerlines, utilities and terrain information.

A planimetric survey results in a basemap that includes geographic objects, natural and cultural physical features, and entities with topographic features such as roads, buildings, and water bodies. All these features can be labeled (named) and categorized further within a GIS. For example, roads can be further divided into different geographical parts, such as the different driving lanes or indicating the location of a centerline of a road. Other important planimetric features include barriers, paved and unpaved areas, vegetation and water structures. All these feature types can be divided into different subsets so that each individual geographic feature can be labeled correctly. This information is essential for spatial analysis, topographic mapping and road inventory management.
