I have had a number of discussions over the past few weeks about the absolute accuracy of mobile mapping systems. This is a very important issue as it goes to the integrity of the entire industry and one that it would seem experts should be able to come to a consensus on.
I think we can all agree that the absolute accuracy cannot be better than that of the scanner, or can we? It seems that some vendors are claiming to do better than this. When the error associated with the trajectory is factored in this would be difficult to understand.
Please provide your thoughts.
